June 8, 2015

We got up this morning, with pretty much the usual Monday morning craziness that happens around here, especially when we have the girls with us. This is the final week of school for Jackie, and Stacy is now enjoying her summer vacation. Jackie's class had a "favorite costume" day, and she decided she wanted to go as a Ladybug. Linda had found a ladybug costume a few months ago, and it still does fit, but just barely. Jackie was very happy, and we all went to her class with a very high level of energy and excitement from the girls. Of course Stacy's was simply because she knew she got to walk back home after dropping Jackie off, and that's okay.

After getting back to the house we had a quick breakfast and then Jason and I started to get ready for our trip to the VA. He had an appointment with their Wound Care folks, and as it turned out, I'm glad we went. His wounds have not closed, and in fact they have grown considerably since the last time we were there. The NP (nurse practitioner) was very concerned about the size of the larger of the two and asked us to follow up with the team that is supposed to be providing a seating solution for Jason. She basically spoke to Jason about the need to get them healed, and that he was being very risky by not getting this done. We now have an open door to get to the right people, and the next step is simply going through that "door." Otherwise the visit was good and Jason is doing very well.

The rest of the day was spent getting ready for a new ground breaking ceremony for another wounded warrior, that is coming up in a couple of days; and, then we'll be going to the Gary Sinise Foundation and Lt. Dan Band event over at Hotel Del Coronado on Flag Day. We're looking forward to it, and hope to have a good time just relaxing and enjoying the music, as much as we can. The hotel and GSF is providing a room so that Jason can rest, as we want to give him as much rest as possible. Two days after this event, Jason will be headed to Balboa for his surgery.

This evening was relaxed, and we had a dinner of left overs, and sometimes that is the best dinner. We will be going with our Taco Tuesday, tomorrow, as we are having a couple of friends over to join us. Tae, and her friend are coming, and this is going to be the last dinner we have with Tae, at least for a while; as she is moving to Texas, in a couple of days. We're going to miss her, since she is a great resource for information, as well as being a good friend. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
