Today was a little different, in that we had a visit from Brian, from the VA, who was here to evaluate me, the environment, Jason and even Linda, to make sure he was in fact getting good care and that we should be a part of their program. I know it sounds kind of strange, considering how long I have been taking care of Jason, but it is a process that is required, and besides, Brian was a great guy to talk with, and he had lots of great information for us. He is also still an active reservist so there is that military connection and I think Jason liked that. When he initially got there he said it was going to be a 2-hour visit/evaluation, but he and Jason were having such a good time it went to almost 3-hours, and that made him late for his next appointment. Otherwise, we passed just fine.
After Brian left Linda and I went into overdrive to get everything packed up and still get Jason fed, as we were leaving for Julian (that's where we are right now - Linda is enjoying a hot bath for a change) just as soon as we could get everything packed and in the car. We left at almost exactly 14:30 (2:30pm) and headed East and then North. It didn't take very long to get to the Inn, and it is great. The get away is a gift from the EOD Warrior Foundation, and it is much appreciated by both of us, and I think Jason, too.
Linda and I walked a little bit, around the town and had a nice simple dinner. We also got to know the Inn person (not sure what her official title is) who checked us in. She talked with us for about an hour and we were the only ones taking advantage of their evening snacks. Linda and I also sat out on the patio for a little while and enjoyed just watching the stars, as the atmosphere is wonderfully clear us here (I think we're sitting at about 4200 feet). There are a bunch of historical things to look at and we plan to do that tomorrow. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
