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.
