This morning the girls came running into our room and jumped into bed with both of us still attempting to wake up. Stacy announced that Christmas is tomorrow and we needed to be ready for it. As it tuned out the girls ran back down stairs and I took the opportunity to get up and at least brush my teeth. I was actually planning on going for a bike ride when I walked into Jason's room and he reminded me that there was an appointment today, this morning at about 10:00. I went back up stairs and let Linda know what was going on and then headed back down to get breakfast for Jason, and the girls.

We all eventually got ready and we headed out to the hospital. Linda wanted to get in some last minute visits prior to the Christmas "shut down" and Jason and I to the appointment. The appointment was with Plastics and Dermatology, at Wound Care. Everyone was amazed at how well the wounds were doing and we got a chance to discuss the next steps with the doctors. We are now looking at the end (or at least the second half) of February for the surgery that is going to be taking place. As soon as a date is set we will be notified and we can look forward to Jason's healing process being that much closer to being as complete as we can get it. There was also a second conversation about a conference that will be held, in about a year, and they would like both Jason and I to participate in it. They want a perspective of a patient as well as the care giver, of a very serious injury. Jason and I said we would be happy to help, especially since the purpose of the conference is to bring awareness to others in the medical world.

The rest of the day was spent back at the house. We had some time to play with the girls and then they were taken over to the other house, where they will spend Christmas. Effectively it will simply be back on the established schedule, and we're just going to have to have Christmas a little later in the week. Tomorrow we are going to figure out what we'er doing, as we get into the day. I have already let Jason and Linda know I would like to go for a bike ride, so that will be in the morning. After that I can't say what we're doing. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night (apologies to Clement Clarke Moore)... :-)
