Today was an active day for Jason, and we had a generally good time all day. Melissa and Kelly are also here for the inauguration, so we met up with them again, and had some fun doing some shopping. Jason decided that he wanted a jacket as well as a dress jacket, you never know when you're going to need to dress up a bit. It was good to see Jason wanting to get out and do something a little more social. Actually we (Linda and I) were a little concerned that we were going to have a problem with the camera and have to go purchase another batter, or a charger. Then I found a second battery that I had brought, and it was fully charged. I had forgotten that I had charged it up and put it in to the camera case. It kind of felt like I had won a treasure hunt game or something.

I did have to change Jason's dressings today, and the wounds are looking better, from the first time. I guess that was part of the reason he was able to get up and go out with us. We had a nice relaxed time with the girls today, and Linda was able to take them to the park and play. They loved it, and made the comment that they never got a chance to go to the park area before, so it was very special for all of us. Some pictures were taken, and I will be getting them up loaded as soon as I get to a place where there is a decent network, as the one at this Red Roof Inn is very poor, as well as slow. It takes me more than twice as long as I would expect to even make this posting, and that is without pictures, as it would with an average connection. On top of that the room and service is not particularly good. We're here because there was nothing else available... Oh well.

Thank you, all for all that you do for the U.S. Service men and women, and especially for all the prayers and support you've given to Jason and us. Take care and stay positive.

  1. You're in my prayers.
