Another quick update - - - Jason turns 34 tomorrow, and we're planning on a very low key celebration. Mostly because we already had a gathering of some friends yesterday, Monday. It was kind of relaxed and very nice to see the people here, and Jason getting out and doing some socializing. The down side is that Linda is in Hawaii right now, helping a friend. It was one of those difficult choices she had to make, but the friend did need her there, and I assured her I would be able to take care of things at the home front... and so far I've been able to.

The girls got up this morning, and we went through our regular routine of getting ready and having breakfast. Not having Linda here made it a little different, but they seemed to deal with it pretty well. I got them to school on time, and they were in good spirits when I picked them up. I even managed to get a couple of errands out of the way, and a load of clothes washed. If I can manage that for another two days, then we'll…

I was thinking that it was about time to get a post out and provide an update on things going on, when I finally logged back on to my own blog. I didn't realize it has been over 3-weeks since my last post, so please accept my apology for taking so long. Part of it is simply that when there was time I was tired, and then there wasn't really a great deal to update about. Then, when there was some news I just didn't seem to get the needed time to get to the blog. Enough excuses... on to the post.

First, Jason is doing well. He is much happier not having the SP tube, going directly into his bladder now, and being to go pee, just like everybody else. The very strong up side to getting rid of the catheter and SP Tube is that it was the main source of infection, and now it is gone. This in itself, is going to make life so much better. The down side is that it is going to take a little bit of time to get his bladder back "into shape" so that he doesn't feel like he h…

Another exciting update for the blog... Jason is doing well and going in to Urology on Tuesday, for his follow up from the surgery. He has been doing very well and on top of that the other wounds are closing up nicely. He had four small wounds prior to the surgery and now he is back down to two, with one of those looking like it will close pretty soon as well.

Jason spends most of his days resting in bed, as he should, though he has been out to fix dinner and enjoys telling the girls their bedtime stories. Actually, this is one of those areas where he really excels. I still think he should take up writing, as he has quite a good imagination and does a great job of telling his stories to the girls. He bases his stories on either a fantasy story he is familiar with or something that happened to  him, somewhere along the line of his own life. Bottom line is that the girls really love listening to him.

Today was an interesting day, especially for Southern California. It started to rain ye…
