The day started out without much difference, as Linda got the girls off to school, while I stayed at the house with Jason, and worked. I work from home and that makes it a little easier to balance our work-life situations. Linda came back from the school and shortly thereafter she was getting ready to go out with Jason, to his medical appointments.
The medical appointments were good, and they did find out that Jason is healing, but there was also a concern expressed, by his doctor that more needed to be accomplished with getting adequate seating for Jason. We are working with the team at Cal Poly, and we feel they are doing their best to provide a solid solution for Jason, but we also don't want that to be an excuse or distraction for the VA and keep them from doing what they can to provide a good seat for Jason. Bottom line is that he, Dr. Sheu called the VA and he is continuing a dialog with them, so that they don't "sit back." Linda and I need to step up our vigilance to keep the folks at the VA focused, as well.
Today, since the girls are not with us for the next several days (5 days), Linda and I decided to go out to dinner. Loretta had come over, and she came along with us, and it was nice being able to just sit back and relax and talk, and not have to worry about the meal. Jason did not come, as he had been up way too long, with the medical appointments, so he wanted to remain down, and quite frankly, I was in total agreement with him. We came back from dinner, and we got to come in the new gated entrance, and it was pretty cool. Everything worked just like it was supposed to, so we felt pretty good about the entire evening.
One of the reasons that Loretta had come over was so that she and Linda could work on going through more of the boxes in the garage. We have way too much to go through, and it will probably be another year (maybe more) before we have the garage completely free of "move" stuff. In the mean time, the two of them will continue to work on the boxes - tonight they went through five more boxes. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
