This year has been such a fast year for us. I guess that's because it has been such a busy year. We began in Bethesda, MD, and went through a few changes there; then moved back out to San Diego, to endure a few more changes. These changes were medical changes, emotional changes, and personal changes; and, I am happy to say that Jason has gotten through all of them in pretty good shape. Now, we are approaching another set of changes, with one of those being associated with a biopsy that was done today.

Jason's day began with a short visit to the folks over at building 26, where there was a formation for the Marines, as Gunny Holmes was being promoted to Master Sergeant, and officially becoming their First Sergeant (he has been the acting First Sergeant for several months) of the Wounded Warrior Battalion. As it turned out, Jason was not able to stay for the ceremony and we had to get over to the good folks at the dermatology clinic, so that the biopsy, mentioned above, could be taken. The company doing the expensive process of growing the collagen for Jason had to coordinate their time with the procedure and a couple of other things, and that all come together this morning. The biopsy is taken back to that company and in another 90 days, or so, the next step can be taken, and it is hoped that that process won't take any more than another 90 days to complete. Assuming it does complete this time (first time attempted it failed), it will potentially  provide Jason with a little more, and possibly even a lot more comfort when he sits up. And, potentially allow for other procedures to be done that will make his life a little more tolerable. I am optimistic that things will continue to develop positively, and perhaps we can begin to see a pathway to the end of his medical recovery.

The rest of the day was pretty much spent at the house, where I did a couple of loads of laundry - one of those being Stacy's Lion Chair. It needed to be fluffed up and since I had previously done Jackie's Giraffe Chair yesterday, I felt I needed to do the same for Stacy' chair. Now both chairs are nice and fluffy, as they were when new. We had tacos for dinner, and it was both simple and good. Tomorrow is another day for another procedure for Jason, where they will be lazing the wounds to help them to better heal, and again that will be in the morning. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support - Take care and stay positive


  1. Chair fluffing! Betcha never thought you'd be doing something like that! Bet the girls were happy!

    Psalms 34:4, 6-7 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. (6-7) This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
