Today was a relaxed day, and Jason spent almost the entire day laying back in the bed. He did take the time out to shower and I did a dressing change on him, and that was all good. He also took Gracie out early in the morning, as dogs need to get out some times... ;-) The dressing change was a major impact on the decision on staying down. The day prior (the day of travel) he was up for several hours and the effects of that where visible on his wounds. I asked him to take the rest of the day off, and a good part of tomorrow too. We want him to feel good on Wednesday, and I think Jason is fully aware of the importance of taking care of himself.

Meals were pretty simple today- Breakfast was here at the hotel which is included with our stay. Jason and I had waffles; lunch was from Linda, where she fixed sandwiches and fruit; and, then dinner was a wonderful meal prepared by Karen and Mike, that they brought over while Jason was showering, so they didn't even get a chance to talk with him. That's okay, we'll get another chance tomorrow; we plan to have dinner with them at their home.

Gracie was up and out early, as Jason took her out for a short walk, and bio-break; later in the day I took Gracie out, but that was mostly so Jason could remain comfortable in bed. Tomorrow we are expecting a visit from the Granada High School baseball team, and probably a number of other folks who want to come by for a visit. I don't think it will be too much of an issue for Jason, and then he will again do a dressing change, and I'll get to do another assessment of how he is doing. He has a very good history of bouncing back, so I am expecting the same this time. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support and take care and stay positive.


  1. As a proud member of the Warriors Watch Riders let me start by saying it was a GREAT HONOR to escort the Ross family on Sunday. What an amazing young man you are SSGT Ross, inspirational doesn't even begin to describe you. From your sense of humor to your infectious smile I am proud to know you, to honor you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sacrifice and service. I can't help but think that if everyone in the world had your mindset, how much better off we would all be. I look forward to seeing you again on Saturday (sorry wont be able to make the game because as much as I would love to be there, work will not allow it)Semper Fi Marine...God Bless you - Sue

  2. Hope you had a great day today!
    Continuing to lift up prayers!
    2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
