Today started out a little differently than the past few days, in that we did not head over to Aspen/Ride Design to continue with the fitting of Jason's new wearable seating system. The way they work is that they custom build a seating solution for the patient, or client and then over the course of a few days there are some fine tuning efforts until the patient and wearable fit each other perfectly. We were originally told that we should not expect to see that until Friday, so we were very happy to see that we had all day today for Jason to be up and around in his.
We were up a little later than we had been getting up, since we didn't have to go to their offices, and it allowed us a little more relaxed time as a family. We went to a late breakfast, and then we decided to head over to a local theater to catch a movie. Jason was wanting to see the new Start Wars VII movie, The Force Awakens and Linda and I wanted to see it as well. We found a theater that reminded us, a little, of the Vine in Livermore, just a little nicer. The best part was that they had seating set up for wheelchair viewing that allowed us to watch from a center location, rather than on the sides, as most theaters have. The fact that it is Thursday, and a matinee probably had some impact on why there weren't many people there, something about having to go to work, and school.
Jason was up for close to 5 1/2 hours today, before he laid back down. The typical length of time he has been able to stay up, over these past several weeks, is more like 2 to 3 hours, max. Later, this evening Jason went to take his shower, and I did the dressing change, and I'm happy to report that he looked pretty good, and not at all like I would expect for being up for more than 5 hours. We're all very hopeful that this is going to help greatly, and be a solid next step for Jason's healing. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
