Jason had a good day today, and spent most of it just laying back in his bed. I helped him with his shower and then did a dressing change, and then he was back laying down. The reason we (he and I) wanted him to spend most of the time in bed was because of the stress he went through yesterday. The wounds are looking different from the last time I saw them, and I am going to have to watch them for the next few days, but he is telling me things are getting better. He basis it on the fact that he has gone from 3 to less than 2 full sized pads (a specialized hydroponic pads) that go on his wounds. By the end of this evening he was feeling much better and I think he will be taking tomorrow pretty easy too. Because of the inauguration Monday he would like to be in a good a shape as he can be.
We had a couple of guests today, and it helped to boost Jason's spirits. Melisa Jarbo and her friend Kelly came back, and brought along their friend Steve. The three of them spent several hours just talking with Jason and letting him feel included with the social activity. I think that some of the time he is "stuck" in his room he feels very isolated from the rest of the world, and their visit helped to change that for him.
The plans for transportation still need to be worked out/finalized, but it looks like our inauguration seating will be very well placed, and then afterward we will going to the congressional offices for a reception. This should provide Jason with a chance to lay back and rest. I'll do my best to keep you all updated on progress as well as provide some pictures of the event. Thank you, all for all your continued prayers and support.
