January 24, 2017

I remember when we were in a drought, wait, that was just a couple of months ago. We are coming up on the 25th day of this year, and it has rained, here in San Diego County, 22 days. The "average" rain fall for this area is about 10.45 inches, over the year. Last year we had 10.25, and this year we've already had about 6 inches (much higher than normal). I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that we are going to have a wet year... ;-)

Things are going well, though, and we have not had any down time due to lost power, or flooding of the roads. Sometimes the network has dropped and the phones are not always working, but those are the only signs that the weather is a little more harsh than normal. Heck, we even had hail, and when that happened the girls were very excited. They were hoping it would continue and turn into snow... it wasn't that cold. Overall, the girls, and the dogs, loved the rain. The rest of us just had to deal with it and clean up the mud being tracked in.

Jason is doing well, and he and I will be heading in to Wound Care in the morning. There is also an appointment with a couple of his other doctors, but I don't think there is going to be much movement on anything else, at least not for the next couple of weeks. We're working with both the VA and the Naval Hospital to get some things pulled together, and Jason is looking to have some of his PT moved to the VA hospital, since it is closer. The challenge is getting them to allow him to have more than 8 treatments without having to get approval for more. With the Navy (Balboa Naval Hospital), right now, he can go in and receive all the treatments he wants. The problem is that it is so far away. Fortunately I think it is being reviewed at higher levels, and it will happen, just we don't know when.

If the weather holds for a few days, and over the weekend, we will probably get out and do some shooting. He hasn't taken his guns out for several months, because of weather. Neither of us wants to go out in the mud, and have him get stuck. All the shooting ranges will be muddy for the next few days... at least. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
