I know I said I wasn't going to be posting every day, unless something special came along... Well, today was a special kind of day. We met with the Ortho doc and had a great conversation with him, mostly about what needed to be done for Jason, to make him more comfortable. There was also a detailed and technical conversation that provided us with a bunch more information, that was had not been presented before. He seemed to take that next step very seriously, and even got hold of the Plastics doctor and they had a brief meeting today, and to us, that was big.

Some of the options the doctor presented were not very attractive, yet sobering. One of the things he said was that Jason needed to get to the point of where the wounds were healed up, to help prevent infection from setting in to the wounds themselves. If infection were to set in it could potentially be life threatening, and that just came across all too real, for both Jason and I. There are options that could possibly insure that the closure could happen, but the end result of Jason's comfort and ability to sit up would be thrown out the door... so to speak. The knowledge base here in Balboa has improved, and there is finally a gathering of the minds, of all the specialists involved. We don't know what is going to be done right now, but at least they are talking, and we are going to be getting some options as to what we can do.

Aside from that it was a very busy day, considering that we only had two short appointments, and those turned into a couple more, and then some insurance issues that needed to be corrected, so we didn't get done until after 14:00 (2pm), which means Jason was in his chair longer than we like him to be. We did finally leave and Jason was back in bed shortly after we got home. We grabbed a quick lunch and then I came and picked up the girls from Child Care. Jocelyn was at the house with Jason, so everything was good. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers - Take care and stay positive.


  1. Sounds like a lot to try to digest. Whatever lies ahead, the Lord is with you! Praying hard!
    Psalms 32:8, 10-11 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. (10-11) Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
