It has been a while since my last post, and for the most part that is because not much has been going on, and Jason has been doing generally better. That all changed on Thursday when Jason started to feel poorly. He wasn't sure what was going on, as it felt uncomfortable (his words) and almost like he was catching the flu or something. He did have a slight fever with it bouncing around 99 and 100, then in the evening it shot up to 103.6. I took him in to the ER at Camp Pendleton and Linda stayed home with the dogs (I think I had the easier job, the dogs get very anxious whenever Jason and I are both gone). They got him in pretty fast, and fortunately there wasn't much going on at the ER, so that made it a little easier (plus it was almost 11PM). They did some blood and urine tests and quickly got some fluids going. A short time later, after the labs came back they got antibiotics going, and a few hours later we were back on our way home. It was now almost 06:30 in the morning. At this point, I could see that Jason was feeling better, and that allowed me to feel a little better. Fortunately the traffic was counter commute, so the trip home was relatively quick.

The dogs were very excited to see us, as was Linda. She was not able to get much sleep since Kojak was howling most of the time, and when not howling he was scratching on doors and window blinds. Finally got things settled down and everybody to bed for at least a little sleep, and then I went to bed. We had to pick up the girls from school today, and it was a half schedule today (of course). The girls didn't even know anything happened, and just thought Grandma and Grandpa were a little tired.

Got up this morning, after a good nights rest and Jason is still not 100%, though doing better. We are supposed to be going to a GSF event, later today, but that remains to be seen. At best, I think we might go, show our lovely faces and then come back home. We haven't seen Gary in a few months, so it would be good to see  him and catch up a little. If anything else happens I'll be sure to make another post. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Thank you for the update. Good to hear that the antibiotics did the trick for Jason!
