Today was a much better day for us, and Jason has his truck. Actually, the Ability Center brought it, and his chair, by at about 08:50 this morning. It was pretty exciting and we did take some pictures, but for some reason I am having difficulties getting them down off the camera right now, so I'm going to have to wait to share them - I'll do my best to get them to you this weekend sometime.

Linda and I worked on some paper work, most of the day, and Jason relaxed and played his video games. There was also an appointment that Jason had to get to, with Wound Care, and that went very well. They were pleased with how the healing is coming along, and it was very visible just how much has healed up. So much so that the wound on the left is just about closed, and the one on the right is now only about half as big as it was just a couple weeks ago.

Jason and I did head over to Costco, to pick up a few things... really, there were only 17 things on our shopping list. He was still surprised at the total when we were done, but I guess that is just the way it is when shopping at Costco. The fun part was that we took Jason's new truck. We drove in some heavy traffic, and then got into the Costco parking lot, and Jason did an excellent job of maneuvering around. I think that in another couple of months, once Jason has become much more comfortable with the operations of the hand controls, he'll be driving it like any other vehicle. If nothing else, he has to get used to driving the truck simply because of its size. It is larger than most vehicles and sits high, so his view point is higher than most drivers.

We got back to the house and unloaded the truck and I went inside. I did take some time to sit down and relax a little, then started dinner. Linda is still sticking with her diet, and she is doing an outstanding job of it, so the dinner was basically just for Jason and I. I ended up going with burritos and that was good for Jason also. They're easy to work with, and they can be mighty tasty. That was pretty much it for the day, and except for taking some time to just be together and the day was over, and I headed up to take care of the blog. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. You ALWAYS have a shock when you see the total at a place like Costco. Hopefully whatever you bought will last a long time. Glad you were able to take the truck and Jason did well!
    Praying hard in Seattle!
    Psalms 31:14-16, 24 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake. (24) Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
