Tomorrow we will be heading back down to San Diego, and Jason will be getting back into the routine of his daily medical appointments. I will also be getting back into a regular routine of helping him where he needs the assistance, and doing my best to take care of the girls and the house. Compared to this past week it will be mundane and common, as this past week has been rewarding and unfortunately too fast.

Today was the official home coming gathering for Jason. It was decided to move it to the end of the week, as to do it at the beginning of the week, when we first arrived would have been too much for Jason to deal with. As with the ball game, there were many people there, including Congressman Eric Swalwell, a representative from the state legislature, the Mayor of Livermore, John Marchand, and still many others. There were representatives from VFW organizations and other Veterans groups, as well as several support groups, and finally Warriors Watch Riders. It all started at the First Street Ale House, in Livermore, and the Watch Riders escorted us over to the VFW Hall. There were so many people there, all wanting to say hello to Jason, and I was going around the hall speaking with friends that we didn't get a chance to eat any of the food. 

I will be needing to pack up all our stuff, and fortunately we have enough room to take home all the gifts that Jason was given, including the framed documents from all the different groups and organizations, and elected officials. We need to be ready to head out of here shortly after 15:00 (3:00pm), so that we can get to the airport early enough to insure the safety of the medical equipment (aka - paramobile). I was contacted by the USO, as they will be escorting us once we get to the airport, and they will take us to the gate, even after going through security. Linda will be able to come along to the gate with us as well so it looks like everything is in place now. It will be good to get back to a solid network, so that I can make these posts with out the frustration of the network dropping every few minutes. Not sure what has been going on at the hotel, but they need to get that fixed. 

Thank you, for all your support - especially like what was shown today - and for all the prayers being sent our way. Take care and stay positive.

  2. It was such an honor yesterday to help welcome Jason back to his community and to have the opportunity to thank him for his service and sacrifice to our country. Yesterday was my first time accompanying the Warrior Watch Riders and both Jason and the mission were inspiring.

    My granddaughter of the heart is currently in combat medic school at Ft. Sam Houston and I messaged her that if she has any down time, she needs to check out this blog. Today I spent several hours reading about Jason's journey and will finish the remaining posts as time permits. You have done a marvelous job on it.

    Jason and your family will be in my daily prayers and thoughts.

  3. This week went way too fast! Praying for safe travels tomorrow!
    1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

  4. As I mentioned when I presented the Racing Car to Jason, I hope we're part of his next homecoming. As a Warriors' Watch Rider it was an honor to meet Jason and his family. As the WWR coin says "We have your back". I hope Linda knows she has an extended family now that consists of all the different organizations that you've met this past week. As well as you and Jason. Your family sure grew this past week. I hope that while back in San Diego, Jason can let some of the other Wounded Warriors know, that America is out here, thanking them for their dedication and commitment to our country. And praying for healing of all their wounds, seen and unseen. Thank you for sharing Jason with us, this past week and thru your blog.

  5. Hope you made it fine to San Diego!
    Am here praying!
    Psalms 27:1, 4-5 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?...One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
