We had a great day today, with Jason and I going over to Balboa, and working with Dr. Shue (Jason's primary), and the folks at prosthetic fitting. They brought in an outside party, call Ride Design, and they seem to have some good ideas on how to make Jason more comfortable, as well as allowing him to sit up and not put pressure on his open wounds. This is the biggest challenge they have with Jason, and if they can get beyond the pressure challenges I do believe Jason will be so much better. They appointment lasted for a little more than an hour, and then there were a couple other things to be done, then we were on our way back to the house.

The rest of the day was pretty much laid back and relaxed. This evening, Linda and I were able to go out and catch a movie. We have found this smaller theater that still shows first run movies, but the prices are much lower. We saw the movie If I Stay and I have to admit that I wasn't too excited about going, but Linda wanted to see it. About 10 minutes into the movie I recognized it from some previews I've seen and realized that it WAS a movie I wanted to see, and I had to let Linda know she picked a good movie. Funny thing was that the theater was virtually empty, except for the two of us... we had a private showing.

Jason basically spent the rest of the day resting in his bed and that is a good thing. The more he is off and out of the chair, the better. I am hoping that there is continued progress and when we go in to Wound Care (Balboa) that they recognize the improvement. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. If you can just wait to see movies you can definitely see them for less money. Of course I always want to have popcorn...that's never cheaper!
    The Lord uses everything that happens for a purpose. Know that I'm praying!
    2 Corinthians 4:16-18 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

  2. Strength comes from the Lord! Praying!
    2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
