A kind'a slow laid back day for the two of us. It started out with me going to the gym (yes, I've decided that I need to start doing something, since I don't get to ride that often anymore), and burning a few calories. When I came back I showered and we had breakfast - mine was kind of lite, then Jason took his shower and a dressing change. I was particularly pleased with the wounds, in how they have improved. If you look at his wound area, and divide it into quadrants, the "top" two quadrants are completely healed now, and the areas in the "lower" two areas are improving greatly. The challenge is that the skin is so very thin that it doesn't take much for new ones to suddenly show up. I've continued to use extra padding in those top areas and hope it continues to help.

Anyway, late morning we ended up heading up to Miramar to check out his uniform, Alpha's, and to see what else he needed to do. It is absolutely amazing how many uniforms he has to have, with one of the big reasons being that he needs his picture taken in it, for his records. He still wants to remain in the Marines, on active duty, and that is one of the requirements. Of course there are a few other things he needs to do, like find a place where they will allow him to work, he only wants to do EOD, and he thinks he knows how he can, but that remains to be seen - stay tuned... ;-)

While we were at Miramar, we went into the Exchange for the uniform, and then when we left we took a slight detour, as opposed to going directly to the exit. Jason saw some pajamas on a rack that he thought Stacy would really enjoy, they were Hello Kitty, and they were on clearance (takes after his mom). After that we went searching for other pajamas for Jackie and luckily we found some Princes (Disney) pajamas and so we walked out with them. This wasn't Christmas shopping, it was done because both girls are growing and need new pj's.

The rest of the day was spent here at the house, with the two of us just laying about, doing very little. I did a little cleaning and some laundry, and some cooking, but other than that, not much. Tomorrow should be another easy day, though I do need to do more work around here, and it will again start with a visit to the gym. Thank you, all for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Glad you found pj's for both. Working around the house counts as exercise, too! ;o)
    Continuing to pray so very hard!
    Ephesians 3:14-21 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
