Did a dressing change on Jason today, and the wound is looking better. I felt compelled to say that right up front, because the rest of the story looked a little rough. It was a busy day for us, and we were moving about as fast as we could, to deal with all the different issues and things coming at us. I had made a couple of appointments for Linda and I to go see the optometrist and found out that my eyes are still in pretty good shape, though I do need to wear reading glasses. I passed 60, more than a couple of years ago, so I'm happy that my eyes are as good as they are. My distance vision is still pretty good, so I am still listed as 20/20. Linda, on the other hand still has her need for glasses, and so he wrote up a prescription for her, and she is getting some cool looking glasses - sun glasses, actually, as she can use them for driving, and she almost always wears sunglasses when she drives.
We're trying to put together a small get away for the two of us, for our 40th anniversary. I've been able to secure a place we both like, and I think I've found somebody who will be able to come in and help support Jason while we are out. If we can't find somebody, then we don't go. I spoke with Jon (that's all I'll call him for now) today, and he has a medical background and training, so it could be a perfect fit. He would come over with his wife and either stay here while we're out, or drive back and forth from his home in Oceanside, to here.
Like I said, I did a dressing change for Jason and he is looking much better. The concern I had was the amount of blood that came from the wound. He normally doesn't bleed that much, and there was some definite irritation on his skin from the bandages that have been used. The trouble is that because of the wound-vac we have to treat his wound care this way. He did feel a great deal better after his shower, though, and that is a very good thing.
Not much more happening, so I'll close for now. Tomorrow we might be going over to a neighbor's house - one of the new people we've met, since moving in. If we do, we won't be staying long, but we want to cultivate new friendships so that we can get to feeling more like we are really at home. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
