The daily grind is continuing and surprisingly, it is beginning to feel like it is the normal flow of things, and we get to the end of the day and we don't feel totally wiped out. The "we" I'm speaking of is Linda and I, and we are developing a nice team approach to everything we are doing, then again, it is almost necessary, for us to survive. The girls are doing well, and seem very happy to be here with us, and they are getting to spend more and more time with their daddy, and Jason is really enjoying it. I think moving to this new home has been better than we ever imagined, and it is going to be where Jason finds his new purpose in life, besides being the girl's daddy.
Linda got the girls off to school and I was involved with work for most of the day. I did get out of the "office" a few times and took care of Jason's needs - usually more water. He goes through more water than just about anyone else around. He must drink at least a gallon a day, and probably more. The reason he drinks so much is because of the medicines he takes, and I think he just likes water anyway.
Linda fixed him and the girls lunch, though not at the same time, and I fixed dinner. Breakfast we kind of work together, when I can help.
Tonight we had chicken and rice with some steamed veggies, and then apple pie for dessert, along with ice cream of course. After dinner we relaxed a little and I even received a phone call from my brother Charlie - well, he actually called just prior to dessert. It was good to hear from him, as I had not for the past couple of months. I was hoping that he would get a chance to come down sometime this year, but it is starting to look like next Spring will be as soon as he can get here.
Anyway, as Linda got the girls ready for bed and a story, I was helping Jason with his shower and a dressing change. The wound-vac continues to do its job, and the healing is moving. It is a slow process, and we just have to be patient. This coming Sunday and Monday, Linda and I will be taking a couple of days to ourselves, as we have been invited to an event up at Dana Point. We will be speaking to a crowd of people there and sharing our story about Jason and how it has affected the entire family. This is an annual event, put on by the Carrington Charitable Foundation, as one of their major fund raisers, so they can support the Gary Sinise Foundation, and other support organizations. Hope we can get through it without getting too emotional. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
