Today was a little different, as Jason's first appointment was with dental. He had not been to Dental, in Balboa, since coming here last year, actually I guess it was over a year ago, at the end of 2011. Anyway, he had a dental appointment back in Bethesda and apparently that information didn't make it to Balboa. He now has another chart/folder to keep track of, and, in his words, "something else to loose." The visit was uneventful, and his teeth are fine, as far as we know.

After that appointment we went over to Wound Care, where we really didn't do much other than to change the dressing and talk with Dawn about how he was feeling. After that we headed on back home. About the most exciting thing that happened, did so while we were waiting to see Dawn, where we could see out one of the windows, that they were doing some sort of exercise over at one of the bases. As a large plane flew over you could see "spots" come out of the back of the plane and then parachutes opened up. This happened a couple of times and, like I said, was the most interesting thing for the day, up to that point. Of course after that we did have some fun, but that was expected.

I picked up the girls from day care at about 16:25 (4:25pm) and they both were very excited to see me, and wanted to get home to see their daddy. Jason didn't come as he was feeling a bit sore still from the laser work that had been done, and he describes it as feeling like he has a very bad sunburn. After I picked them up we went over to the store to pick up some bread and lettuce  and a couple other things, then we went on home and they were happy to see Gracie as I opened the door. They then proceeded to run to "daddy's" room, and you could see on Gracie's face a bit of confusion. She is adapting very well to all these continual changes, and I guess she just views this as another one.

We had a great, and simple dinner (I barbecued/grilled some hot dogs and hamburgers), and attempted to later watch a video, but as luck would have it... the DVD player decided to stop working. We don't normally watch much in the way of TV or DVDs so I had no idea it was no longer functional. Something we'll need to take care of, down the road. The girls had a great time playing tonight, and decided to play camp out. Stacy built a small "camp site" in their bedroom, and Jackie was having a great time doing whatever Stacy asked her to do. I guess it was better than a DVD anyway. Thank you, for all your continued prayers and support - Take care and stay positive.


  1. So glad the girls are back where they belong!
    Psalms 5:1-3 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

  2. I continue to read every day. I was most happy to see the reception from John Q Public in Livermore upon Jason's return.

    See a story of today below and know there are those that know of Jason and your family and the impact:

    What can you do to help the WWP? Talk about it, tell the stories of Wounded Warriors. Today, VA Rush Soccer Club had a golf tournament. We collected donation for the Wounded Warrior Project. At the end. as I sat a table of men after dinner, I told the story of SSGT Jason Ross, SPFC Andrew Harriman and others. The sacrifices they and their families have given to all of us. Our Wounded Warriors and their families have given everything to us. Want Proof? There are no planes flying into the world trade center because of the price our warriors have paid to protect all of us. The heroes of America deserve our support. At the table tonight, every man opened their wallet and gave every cash dollar they had to me for WWP!. America does care. If you are a friend to WWP and Wounded Warriors spread the message and ask for the support to WWP. We owe it to our Wounded Warriors to assist them and in honor of those that gave all!!!!!!!!
