All, first, a big THANK YOU, for all the dedicated visitors/readers of this blog. I apologize for the length of time since my last entry, and am making it now. We have been quite busy with many different things, some that have kept us up later in the evening, and even today it is now after 22:30 (10:30 PM). The main point of this blog is to provide status and updates on Jason, and his progress, well, he is still doing well, though there hasn't been a great deal of progress with the healing. In fact he has developed a pressure soar that isn't going away. We'll be working with the folks at the VA to see what can be done, as well as the doctors at Balboa.
The reason for working with both teams is simply because we feel that the prosthetic he now has is no longer providing the kind of support he needs, and they need to make adjustments. The doctors and medical staff at Balboa seem to have a better handle on the treatment side. Together we need them to merge talents and help get Jason to the next level. If we can just get these wounds to close and stay closed, then Jason can finally get to doing some of the other things he would like to do, like get back in the water.
Right now, George, Jason's oldest brother is with us, and has been with us for a few days. It has been good to have him here, and for Jason to be able to spend a little time with him. George doesn't get a chance to come down that often, as travel can be a challenge for him sometimes (George has cerebral palsy and other challenges), and it is truly a team effort for him to get from point A to point B. Thank you, to Rick for getting him to the air port and picking him up when George returns. We took George whale watching yesterday, and had a great time. Didn't see any whales but still had a great time.
Not much more to update about, right now, other than that Jason is "Fostering" a puppy, and is considering the dog as a replacement for Gracie. Gracie is now middle-aged and will need to have a replacement in the not to distant future. We will see how this new dog works out, and go from there. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
