Well, we got some good news today, and that is that Jason will be heading back to Colorado for a new prosthetic device, next month. At least that is the plan for right now. I spoke with Jason's coordinator and she said she is doing her best to get all the right players coordinated, so we can have another one of those group meetings, getting the final details. When we did this last time (about 18 months ago) the meeting itself went pretty smoothly, and most of the required people were able to make it. Because it is still a hospital type environment sometimes things happen that don't allow everyone to be at the meeting, no matter how much they want to.

Jason is doing well, and he has just about all the needed things in place for his chickens to survive. The last thing is an invisible fence to help keep the dogs back. Even when the dogs are simply being curious about the chickens it causes them to be frightened. The invisible fence is going to keep the dogs back at a safe distanc…

Well, so much for schedules... I really had planned on posting something yesterday, but we ended up travelling all day and then socializing a bit more than I had planned. It was all good, but no post was put up yesterday. Anyway, I'm posting now.

Jason is still in Fallbrook, at home, while Linda and I are traveling in Kentucky. We're here because we've been invited to participate in a wedding, and it is one of our nephews (Linda's side, her brother's son, Ben). As you might expect the humidity is quite high, and the temperatures are up a little over 90, so it is muggy, and so we stay in side most of the time. It is good to see the family and be able to spend some time together, so we'll survive the weather.

Jason is doing well, and we have wonderful help for him. Joselynn is spending a few days with him, and then Isaac and Kami will be staying there at the house to help take care of some of the needs as well as take care of the animals. Then we should be home s…

Well, there have been a few things that have been keeping us pretty busy, over these past few days, and  unfortunately I don't have time right now to go over all of them, but I'll touch on a couple of them so that you have some idea of what is going on.

Jason has gotten the girls signed up for Taekwondo classes, and they are really doing well. Both of them past their first "test" and were pretty excited about moving up to the next level. Both of them are still very much in the basic level of training and education, but it seems to be good fun for them, and we believe that it is helping to build their confidence.

Jason's wounds are not doing as well as we would like, and most of that is due to the fact that he no longer has a prosthetic that he can use. The scar tissue is breaking down more and it seems we're moving backward more than forward. A new prosthetic is coming in about a month, but that is going to require a trip to Colorado, and a new device will be…
