Not a great deal going on today, other than the girls are back with us, at least until Wednesday morning, when we take them to their day care. The communications between Jason and his ex seems to be going much better than it was just a few weeks ago, and I'm glad to see that. They have a schedule that has it totally outlined as to when the girl are with us, and when they are not, and it seems to be working well.

The morning started with Jason going to formation, as he does on Mondays, and today's ceremony was topped off with the retirement of three other Marines, all from the Wounded Warrior Battalion. One of them was Sgt James Amos, who we met back in the early days of Bethesda. He is a double amputee and more than once, he and Jason would just sit and talk about their lives. I was glad to see him moving on, but I was also saddened by his departure, truly a hero in every sense of the word.

After formation we both had meetings to attend to in Building 26, and then other things to be done over by C5. We hadn't planned on the meetings and things to be at that same time, it just worked out that way. So much so that as I walked out of the building, Jason came out with me and we headed over to C5 together. While there Jason had some of his meds updated and Rx's filled. I went to pick up some new supplies. After this we went back to the house, mostly to allow Jason to take a shower and clean up, and also a dressing change for the wounds.

We went to the store and picked up a few things, mostly fresh vegetables, so that Jason can put together one of his famous soups. We also bought a few other things like milk and eggs, but those are kind of normal purchases. Once we got back to the house I fixed lunch for the two of us, and then I sat down on the couch for about 15 minutes. It was now time to go back and pick up the girls as well as the meds that had been ordered for Jason.

They are doing some renovation with the pharmacy, so frequently the time to pick up prescriptions is much longer than what would normally be experienced. I got the meds and went over to pick up the girls and found out that they were in the same room. Jackie spent the day with Stacy and it worked very well for them as well as making it easier for me to pick them up. We went back to the house and then the girls and I walked over to the housing office to get some work orders placed (a couple of things need repair). We got back to the house and I let the girls play while I started to fix dinner.

The girls went to bed, with no problems and so I read them a nice long story about Cinderella, and then they went to bed (and I'm going to be doing the same in a few minutes). Tomorrow should be another easy day, though both of us need to go to the VA to get some information, and check on appointments. The real good news is that I don't have to get the girls up early, and they can sleep in. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support, and take care and stay positive.


  1. So happy to hear that communication and the schedule is working out better. That is wonderful.
