Jason and I had a great visit today with Wound Care, though it wasn't the visit we thought we were going to participate in. The doctors we were supposed to meet with (at least I thought we were supposed to be meeting with) didn't show up. Not sure what happened, or if we simply got the date wrong, but they sure weren't in the room with us. There was, however, another person in the room with us, Van, from Mobility Solutions, and that turned out to make it a very productive visit anyway. Van had not seen Jason's actual wounds before, and he was trying to design a chair and seat based on information that was given to him from others, as well as what he could see while Jason was dressed. He could see much more clearly what Jason was going through and how his seating and posture were affecting the healing of the wounds. He intends to go and suggest a new modification to Jason's chair and that should allow for greater pressure relief and thus help with faster healing. We will now just have to wait to see how well this works its way through the system and chain of command.

We spent most of the rest of the day at the house, where Linda was still trying to catch up on some of her rest, so that she could fly back to Livermore a little more comfortably today. Yeah, she had to fly home today and we are again living in two different houses. We will be so glad when all the stuff is completed at the house in Livermore and she can be down here full time. There is much still to be done so we don't have a date yet, but stay tuned for more exciting developments. Oh, and I received a confirmation email from Patrick L. that Home Depot would be able to get started with some of the work on the house in October. I think close to the same time that the Kenny Loggins concert is going to be happening at Wente, for the Wounded Warriors of the Tri-Valley.

The girls will be going back to their mom tomorrow, so it will be Jason and I again for a few days (five) and in that time I'm guessing we're going to be working to get a few things done around the house. One of the big things we want to do is to get Jackie out of her crib and on to a "regular" bed... the twin of Stacy's bed. It has been sitting in the garage for months, so it is time for us to put it together. Another thing we're hoping to do is to go to the Forty-Niner vs. Chargers on Thursday. I received an email from the YMCA and they have some tickets, so I asked for a couple. I just hope they can accommodate Jason's chair. If not we'll have to watch it on TV like everyone not at the game.

Not much else going on, just getting ready to go to bed. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Will be so happy when Linda can join you full time! And so glad that it worked out that Van could see for himself what needs to be done.
    Know that I'm always here praying!
    Psalms 46:1-5 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
