March 29, 2014

Not much to report on, as far as Jason's activities or his progress, though when I did his dressing change the area did look better, and he made the comment that he was feeling pretty good. My guess is that there really isn't going to be much of any kind of update until we get to the Wound Care clinic again, and they take down the wound vac and we can see what has happened with that area.

There was, however a major improvement with Linda's and my status down here in San Diego. We brought the U-Haul truck in last night, and fortunately Joselyn was able to stay with him as late as we needed her to. This morning we had a few Marines come over, Jaime, Casey, Jeff, and Kazee and they helped us with several hours of heavy lifting and moving. We got all of it done, and we're down to one last smaller truck to bring stuff from Livermore. I will be headed up to Livermore on Monday and then loading the truck up and driving it back down. It will be a busy day, and probably a LONG day, but that's okay, I'll get to see the house again.

Okay, just as I was writing this blog Jason called me to let me know that he was in intense pain, so I've called 911 and we're headed in to the ER. I will be updating again later.

Just got back from the ER. The doctor who saw Jason said that the problem was, "a raging UTI", or a bad urinary infection. Those are the worst things for Jason, as they tend to be very painful and uncomfortable. The only good thing you can say about them is that they pain only comes in bursts, and the time between the bursts can be over an hour. The doctor prescribed antibiotics, and everything should be cleared in a matter of a few days. It is now 04:00 in the morning and I'm tired. I think I'll go to bed now. Thank you. for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Praying that you were able to rest today and for safe travels tomorrow!
    Psalms 27:1, 4-5 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?...One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
