Sorry for the delay in getting this updated, I've been working a great deal lately (14hr days) and haven't had much of a chance to get to this. The job I'm doing now is driving, or chauffeuring. The work is okay, though it isn't what I want to be doing, and the income is only about half of what I was making. On the positive side, it has, along with the Ocwen mortgage restructure, has allowed us to save our home and at least continue with that part of our lives. (A little side bar here - Ocwen worked with us and finally we came up with a restructuring, or loan modification, that really made our lives so much better, so a big thank you to them for doing all this for us.). Okay, now on to Jason, as I know you didn't come to read about me... ;-)
Jason is out of the hospital, for the most part, though he has been dealing with infection again. He did have to go back in for a couple of days to take care of the infection and to have a new pick-line put in, so now he is able to fight them off more effectively. His spirits are up and he is happy having his family around him (wife and kids), though he has told us he misses us - we miss him, too. They get to act a little more like a real family again, and this "normalizing" is really good for him.
Linda and I will be headed back to visit with Jason and the family on January 17, and we'll be staying for six days. Fortunately we're getting some help from Semper Fi, so we can stay for a few days. We are going for the inauguration! We have been invited by our Congressman, Eric Swalwell and all four of us will be there. It was decided that this would not be a good event for the girls, since it will be cold, and they will effectively have to sit still for a pretty long period. That can be a serious challenge for any four year old and almost impossible for a two year old... ;-) We hope to get to visit with some of our friends while back there and we plan to have the girls spend some time with us too. Besides, it will be a good break for Bridgette and Jason, so that they can have some "alone time."
I plan on getting some pictures taken so I will do my best to get some new ones posted up. Thank you all for all your continued support and prayers. I will work to get more posts/updates going again. Take care and stay positive.
