Three years ago Jason was brought back from his drug induced comma, for a little while anyway. The amazing part was when the psychologist came in and asked Jason what day it was. In Jason's natural mischievous manner he told the good doctor that it was March 17, 1729. At the least, the doctor was startled and a little surprised. What it did, though, was to change St. Patrick's Day forever - for me anyway. It showed Jason's mental strength and demonstrated just how strong his attitude was. Ever since then people continue to be amazed at how positive he is, and continues to be. Even after this recent surgery where he has to remain in an uncomfortable position for at least six weeks, and probably eight. I am so very proud of all he has demonstrated, and I can tell you that Linda feels the same as I do... but then again, she is his mom and you know you never get in between a mom and her cub.
Today was a good day, as we went to the hospital for wound care and dressing change. All the wounds are looking better, though they are taking their time healing up. One of the areas they were concerned about last week (Friday) looks to be in much better shape today, and it is moving in the right direction. We don't need to go back until Thursday, so I'll be taking care of everything until then, and I am becoming much more confident that I'm doing the right thing. We also had a couple of visitors, Tom Lightner and Fred Thomson, and they stayed and visited with us for about an hour. Their timing was good as Linda was able to make them both a sandwich and we all sat around and just relaxed and chatted. Its those kinds of visit that make me really appreciate life an appreciate good friends.
Linda, Grandma, took the time to make a nice St. Patrick's day for the girls, as they came home after school today. Both Stacy and Jackie were excited to see all the decorations and to find evidence of the Leprechauns all over the house, and especially their bedroom. The girls ran around for about an hour, wearing their green fairy wings and magic wands, it was an uplifting display of happiness.
The rest of the evening was dinner, and no I didn't cook corned beef, I got side tracked and before I knew it, it was too late to get it started. That's okay, I will cook it for tomorrow and we'll have a nice dinner again. Tonight we had salmon and rice with Brussels Sprouts, and it was very good. The girls had applesauce instead of the sprouts, but that's okay, they'll probably end up enjoying them later on. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
