Dr. Todd's answer to a leaky faucet=New Room

Remember yesterday when I asked Dr. Todd to see about fixing the leaky faucet? Well, "Voila" Dr Todd took the credit today when Jason was moved, yes moved to another room!!! Not so fast Dr. Todd, he also asked about the locked locker which sad to say is still locked in this room!

Jason is now in Ward 58, Room 5834 Phone 782.9628. I hate to be a party pooper but Jason will probably be moved again. In this room he cannot see visitors as they sit to his right side. So we have requested a room so that visitors sit to his left, his good eyesight eye. As soon as one opens Jason will move again. Maybe the foot locker will be unlocked! and I will have to bow down to Dr. Todd. (who is a real cutie by the way)BTW how do you move a patient? You do it while Jason is in OT (out of room) pile everything on the bed and quick as a wink you are out of there and into here!

Uncle Bob Lincoln was impressed by one of Jason's visitors. Do you remember General Honore after Hurricane Katrina? Jason did not recognize him-being in Iraq. But Bob did and asked to be sure. Of course, both of them forgot the camera in the drawer and so "no proof" we will have to take their word that General Honore did indeed visit! (they are always saying Lisa and I are compulsive about pictures) Speaking of visitors Jason says the "Raven's cheerleaders" not in uniform visited during I think PT this morning. To be honest I have to right that Jason said, "would have been cooler had the football players visited" So you who schedule visits ....take heed to the soldier's requests. The group that sponsors sports for the amputees came in and really wants to take Jason to CO in April to ski and whatever. Fr. Rich came by and asked if Jason was still considering Lourdes. So I think there is definitely travel in Jason's future!

But I save the best for last...
Jason tried the first "made for him" arm prosthetic. Well...something went wrong with the electric/computer chip thigamagicy and it began to spin around his arm! Jason said, "Cool now I need a blender arm attachment to make homemade smoothies!" So I guess they have to rewire the darn thing or whatever...Adventures in prosthetics 101 here we go!

I went to Quixote Center for liturgy which is a blessing and pray for each of your intentions. Let us pray for Jason and all the soldiers and their families and for peace.

Katy, at this point it's actually not a bad thing because now Jason will learn to turn his head and scan to his left--good training for driving later. It's a skill he will need.
hmmm where do all those cuboard keys go? Barb

congratulations on your promotion today... we'll put the blender arm to use by mixing it with tequila and a little salt...

Congrats Jason!!
I read the blog every day and figure it is time to start leaving messages. I am very impressed by your recovery and how you keep your sense of humor. Your mom knows humor is big in my household. Keep up your great attitude and just call me if you need an adjustment. I'll think of something. Hope to visit in the near future with the hospice gang. Katy, sounds like you are keeping busy at work as usual. I have cards and a package I might get sent one day(I am the queen of procrastination). Love to you all-
Cindy Nicholls

Katy - did you know that General Honore is a cousin to Tom Honore, of the CTA board and Anti-Racism team? How neat that you got to meet him!
