Well, I guess Friday the 13th came on a Monday, this month. Only it hasn't been a bad day at all for the Ross clan in San Diego. It has actually been a rather nicer, almost relaxing kind of day with Linda getting a chance to catch up a little with our niece Katie and Jason and I having a nice visit at Balboa.
We got up this morning and kind of piddled around slowly getting ready, and not really knowing what we were going to see today. Linda had a more focused view, and in a relatively short period she was ready to go and Jason and I were still finishing our breakfast cereals (we had Cheerios today). Linda initially had some trouble with the GPS (it insisted that she was up in Laguna) so I just printed the direction out from Google Maps, and she was on her way. Funny thing is, when she was returning she found that the GPS was now working correctly... go figure.
Jason and I had to get down town to get some documents notarized and that was actually more fun than I anticipated. There wasn't much traffic and it kind of gave us a chance to look around a little. Because of my bike riding and taking some time to learn the city a little better I was able to show Jason how to get from where we were to the base. It didn't take long and with lite traffic the drive wasn't too bad. We did get to see Jennifer Town and we had a nice visit with her. Parking is a real challenge still, and some of the changes they've made are tough on the C5 guys, and we told Jennifer about this, and she said she would look into it. One thing we've learned about Jennifer, when she says she is going to do something, it happens.
One of the main reasons for going in was to look at setting an appointment to figure out when surgery could be done, and we have an appointment now, to do just that. We will be going back on Wednesday to speak with the right folks (Dr. Sheu is in Denver, so we'll be speaking with the other doctors to get this set up), and when we get back home, in the afternoon - on Wednesday, we should have a surgery scheduled. The rest of the time there was at PT, and there turned out to be another Marine there and he and Jason hit it off pretty well. Apparently, Tennet (I believe that's how you spell his name) wants to start working with Jason on learning how to play the banjo. I think that's pretty cool, and I'm glad to hear that the instruments Jason has may finally get used.
We got back home and shortly thereafter, Linda came home (it was about 1 minute between the time of our arrival and her arrival). We went and picked up the girls and the rest of the day was pretty much routine. I think we may have to go to Costco tomorrow, though it is Taco Tuesday, if not we'll go for sure on Wednesday. I may even try to get a bike ride in tomorrow, though that isn't solid at this time. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
