A very nice couple of days for us, as yesterday brought us some nice clear weather, and the temperature stayed around 70 degrees. The girls had a great time at school and with the family at home, and Jason made a little more progress with both Gracie and Kojak. The progress is in Kojak's socialization (getting more used to people and other surroundings) and in Gracie just getting used to the fact that Kojak is now a part of the family. Gracie is kind of an interesting study, in that she is very laid back and yet likes to do whatever she can to please Jason. With Kojak introduced to the picture you can see a little jealous streak, but nothing serious, as they seem to get along and play often. That was pretty much the day yesterday, and it was also why there was no post yesterday - it was quiet and comfortable, and not much to write about.
Today was also a nice day, though much busier in the morning and into the afternoon. We got up and the girls off to school, as we usually do, then Jason and I needed to get over to Balboa Hospital. About a month ago Jason was scheduled to have surgery on the 19th, and that was postponed due to a few conflicting things. The surgery is probably going to be in June, though we need to get a solid date from the doctors, when we meet with them again on June 1. In the mean time Jason is reasonably comfortable and this extra time allows him to be able to work more with Kojak and get him used to working with the rest of the family, as well as Gracie. Jason and I had to get over to Balboa because of a regular Wound Care visit, and we brought both dogs with us. As expected Kojak was all over the place and that made travel through the courtyard just a little bit of a challenge. The folks there were really happy to see Kojak, as they had heard about him for weeks, and finally seeing him was really nice. The visit went well, and though they were not pleased with how the wounds have opened up some, I did explain to them that they were beginning to close back down again, and Jason has said he will spend less time in the chair, and that will help greatly.
After Wound Care we went over to the airport to pick up our friend Anthony Netto, and then got Jason back over to the house to get him back down. Linda and I took Anthony back up to his home in Oceanside, and Jason relaxed. Anthony and Angelica are purchasing a home up in Vista, so they will be much closer to us, after we're all moved to our new homes. The down side is that any trips to the airport are going to be much longer (we're only about 10 minutes from the airport now).
After dropping Anthony off, and visiting with Angelica for a little bit, we turned around and headed back to our home in San Diego (where we live now). It was now about 12:30 and we didn't have any more trips to make, other than to go do some shopping. We had a chance to relax before going to pick up the girls from school. We have the girls the entire week, so that is a little bit of a change, and those are the kinds of changes we like.
I did make a quick trip over to Target, and shortly after that Linda and I started dinner. Dinner was simple and the girls did an amazing job of eating everything on their plates. Then we went outside to the patio and they played. They also drew on the concrete and played some games, then we all came back in to read and finally get ready for bed. Linda read some stories to them and then I went in to say good night, of course all this after they went to say good night to Daddy. These are the kinds of days I really do enjoy, and it seems we all do around here. Thank you , for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
