Well, another month has just about gone by and, I don't  know about you, but it sure seemed like it was a fast month. We managed to get several things done, for Jason, and we still have several more to accomplish, and I'm sure we'll always have somethings to do. The team from Cal Poly came out this morning to gather more information and do some measuring. They took SEVERAL pictures of his chair and even made a 3-D computer model of the chair and of Jason. Apparently Microsoft donated an X-Box 3-D imaging device for this project - - - I thought it was pretty cool to watch how it is used. They said they might even make an action figure of Jason with the model, though I think they were just kidding when they said it.

After the Cal Poly team left (they were here for almost 2-hours) I was able to get a couple of things done, small things, and then Joselyn and her son Bobby came by. Jason had asked them to come over and they helped him with a couple of tasks he wanted to get done. Bobby and Jason have several similarities, and they get along very well. They talked for hours while they were here and Jason even got up to visit in his chair. Fortunately he didn't stay up too long, but it was noticeable that he was tired by the time they went home. Even Joselyn made the comment that he looked a little tired. Of course Jason said he wasn't, and he just relaxed and watched a little TV after they left. I fixed him his dinner and in a matter of 30 minutes or so he was sound asleep.

I managed to get a short bike ride in, and look forward to getting a schedule together that allows me a regular amount of time to get out and ride. I really miss going for those longer rides and just enjoy being out side. I'm guessing, and as long as the weather permits, I will be riding more by Spring. It is important for Linda and I to stay as healthy as we can, so that we can help Jason and the girls continue to grow and improve.

Linda will be coming home tomorrow, from Salt Lake City. She has been up there visiting with her sister Lisa, and Lisa's husband Michael. They went out and played in the snow and Linda told me that they all went tubing, for the first time. I can imagine that they all had a great time and probably all got very wet and cold (funny how that happens when you play in the snow). Obviously they made it back to the house okay, because Linda called me and told me all about it. I'm anxious to see the pictures and to learn more about this adventure. I am very happy that Linda was able to go as I know it sure made Linda happy. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. It's a blessing to be able to pray for you!
    Psalms 71:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

  2. Know that I'm lifting up prayer!
    Psalms 71:12, 14-16 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help...But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

  3. Keep your eyes on the Lord! Call to Him! Am praying to Him right now!
    2 Samuel 22:2-3, 7 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. (7) In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

  4. These words are so comforting! Praying!
    2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
