Things have been going pretty good for the past several days and then yesterday Jason had to get over to the ER at Camp Pendleton. Seems he got an infection from MRSA, which is a type of staph that is resistant to most antibiotics. Well, it came in the form of a cyst and simply looked like a large pimple, very large. He was able to speak with his primary doctor at Balboa and she instructed him to get over to the ER and that's where they took care of it. Fortunately it was seen before it became a major issue, and in a matter of a couple weeks we should be all done with it. The down side on this is that they had to pack it with a medicated strip, so that it would heal correctly while at the same time helping it to heal from the inside out. Tonight I had to get Jason back over to the ER so they could make the change to the packing and it was quite painful for Jason. The medical team assure him that each day it would become less painful, and that this first one was the most painful.
The timing is unfortunate, as we are also working on putting together a surprise Super Hero Birthday party for our son, George, III, as he is turning 40 years old this month and has always loved Superman. Linda has been working on this for the past few months, and it looked like it was going to be smooth sailing. Things just seem to happen sometimes, and we just have to go with the flow. Jason and I were supposed to have been out to Spring Training, in Arizona, but things just didn't come together with transportation. As it has turned out, it is a good thing we didn't go, as Jason was able to get that infection taken care of. Anyway, George's party is still on and Jason's treatments should be very manageable by the time everybody gets here.
Speaking of everybody being here. This is the first time that all four of our sons will be together in over six years. Linda and I are very much looking forward to seeing all of them in the same place. We will have all our sons and all our grandkids in the same place... that is going to be awesome. The rains seem to have stopped, finally, so we should have some good days for the party, and for the visit. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
