Monday, after a holiday (even Easter) that happens on the weekend, for the military, usually ends up as a day off. It is usually referred to as a 96, meaning that they all have at least 96 hours off, or four days. Obviously the guys really enjoy this break, because it gives them enough time to go do something a bit more off the "normal" routine of a regular weekend, and they often come back either very tired or refreshed. In Jason's case, it is going to be more of the refreshed variety. We ended with today pretty much staying at home and Jason staying down.

He spent a few more hours than he would normally spend, due to visiting with friends, and this was all good for him, spiritually and mentally, though it took its toll physically. I was glad that he spent the day in bed and got the rest he needed. His wounds are getting to a point where there is good healing going on, and I would like to see that continue, so I'm going to be nagging him a bit more the next couple of days to stay down more, though he usually is pretty good about it anyway.

Tomorrow starts with a very early appointment (07:30) and then we'll head back to the house. There are a couple of other things he wants to get accomplished, and then back to laying back down and relaxing again. I mentioned earlier that he had gotten himself a new pet, and it has given him something to focus on, besides the video games, TV and movies. I think this is going to be good for him, and it is a relatively easy chore that give him the feeling of accomplishment. Thank you, for all the continued support and for the continued prayers.

I'd also like to say that I am going to do my best to stay focused on Jason and his recovery and not allow myself to be distracted again. I appreciate your tolerance, as I should not have gotten distracted, again, thank you.

  1. Missed a few posts so went back and got caught up. I'm not sure what you're talking about when you say you got distracted. Pretty much everything you wrote was Jason related. And if you talk about other family members that's still what Jason is going through, too!
    Praying right now!
    Psalms 40:1-4a I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust...

  2. Always lifting up prayer!
    Psalms 40:5, 11, 13 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. (11) Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. (13) Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
