September 6, 2013

Today was a good day, as we got the chance to speak with the right folks with regard to the modifications needed for his wheelchair. There is going to be action done to make a "tilt" feature on the chair, and that is designed to help alleviate some of the pressure on the wounds, and even on areas that have already healed over. The good news is that the changes won't take long to do, once all the parts are received, and that leads us to the less-good news, as it will take some time to get the parts, though they may come in more quickly.

Jason is feeling good, and he is getting a good work out, each time he goes into PT. Dawn is the therapist that Jason usually works with, and Mike jumps in to help on those times when Dawn isn't there yet, or has the day off. The good thing is that Mike is one of the senior therapists there and really knows what he is doing, so Jason has two very qualified and good people working on him. While Jason is being worked on in PT I usually just sit and visit with him and the others for a little while, and then I'll walk around C5 and visit with whomever happens to be there, that I am familiar with. Since we've been connected with Balboa for almost two years now, we've gotten to know just about everyone.

We got the girls today, and they will be with us for the next five days, so that part is really good. The only thing that would make it better is if Linda were here as well. The girls really do love their Grandma, and ask for her each time they come over. Jackie is loving her new bed, and I think she is looking forward to sleeping in it for more than just one day, so that is one of the exciting things for this time. Tomorrow we will be taking Jason and Gracie up to their training lessons, so the girls and I will be playing at the park. I'm thinking that I will get up and go with pancakes, since everyone seems to like those, and a good hearty breakfast will help to hold us through the morning. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers, and take care and stay positive.
