Well, to begin with - The SF Giants are still in the game and go up against the Nationals on Friday. They did an awesome job of beating the Pirates, and the best part is that I actually got to watch a big chunk of the game. I was, as you can probably figure out, very happy to have this happen. I am hopeful that this is just another of their weird comebacks for the season... but now on to the regular blog.

Jason and I headed off to the appointments today, with the first being at Balboa and Wound Care. It was a nice visit and they were quite happy with his progress. Both the wounds are improving and the left side is just about closed up - another two or three days and it should be there. The next appointment was with the VA, and Jason's Case Manager/Social Manager. It is her responsibility to insure that Jason continues on his journey to recovery, AND to make sure that the VA is doing all it is supposed to be doing to help him get there. Having said that, she was informed about the mess up with urology and how they effectively dropped the ball. She said she would be speaking with urology and letting us know what the out come is. I let her know that Jason has to be given preferential treatment, if they expect the healing to continue. Him sitting in the waiting room for over 2 hours was not good. Both of us were pleased with her reception and feel that she has the right focus for Jason.

The rest of the day was spent at home, though I did make a quick trip to the pet store - Mr. Jingles was out of food (almost) and needed some new bedding material, and I picked up another bag of dog food, since I was there. We relaxed and did some things around the house. I made a quick dinner with the left overs in the refrigerator, and that was about it, until the baseball game. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. I am so sorry that there were delays and screw-ups at VA. They need to respect Jason, and you, and make this transition work. If not...I look forward to their hearing about it, repeatedly if necessary. You and Jason deserve the best care, not disorganized, insensitive, mess ups. Hugs!

  2. Watching the Angel/Royals game right now. Extra innings!
    Hopefully the case manager can help prevent anything like this from happening again.
    The Lord knows all the "whys" and He's always working! Praying!
    Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
