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.


  1. Look to the Lord for all things! Know that I'm lifting up prayers right now!
    Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

  2. Pour out your heart to the Lord! He hears! Praying!!!!!!!!
    Psalms 42:1-5 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
