Iraq to Germany

I was on the phone early this morning trying to determine what Jason’s status was. They had very little information because he is still in transit. Jason is scheduled to land in Germany at 4:45 PM (German time) today which is just an hour from now Central Time. They said that it will be several hours before he is processed into the hospital and evaluated. He will be at Landstuhl Medial Center at least until Wednesday and possibly until Saturday (Those are the days that the two weekly flights are made to the U.S.). The average stay in Landstuhl is 5-6 days during which time they evaluate Jason, clean is bandages, perform any immediate surgery, and get him ready to travel to the U.S.

I think Jason was in a medical induced coma for the trip to Germany. I don’t know if they will keep him in the coma. He is currently list VSI (Very Serious Injury) which is civilian equivalent of critical condition.

Jason’s Aunt Judy and Uncle Stan are planning to visit him while he is in Germany. Landstuhl is about five hour drive from Brussels where they live.

I am hoping to get a more complete report on the seriousness of Jason’s injuries once they do the evaluation in Germany. I have not had any success getting the medical report from Iraq.
