Update 11/17/05

Therapy schedule kicking in big time:
1. 2 hours of PT, Jason walked on his own today! YES!
2. 2 hours of OT, Jason painted a moose with a paint brush attached to his right arm (exercise for left and right hand coordination). Quote: "The hardest part was getting the moose to lay down!" "I looked like I should be wearing a bike helmet licking a window." BTW Jason was standing up during the whole exercise-to increase standing endurance (about 20 minutes total). He is so tall that they cranked the art table as high as it could go, still too low, so OT kept piling up boxes on the table to get the moose to his hand level. Friends Andrea and Captain (Retd Navy) Spencer Johnson spent their first visit in OT with Jason.

Jason has a plan to drive his psychiatrist "batty" He is thinking up all kinds of scenarios to tell her. You cannot keep an INTP down! Their motto is "7-UP" they will best you at word play and Jason is relishing the thought of harassing his Psychiatrist and any other MD is fair game. He is straight with the RN's and Medics. Likes Eva (very competent) who has a stud in her lower lip, wears Goth, wild jewelry, necklaces, earings etc; and Mike the night RN who is ex army, tattos everywhere but has a real rapport with the guys. He is a natural for the soldiers!

Distinquished visitors today:

A "Professional staff member" (serious that is what his card said) connected to the House Armed Services Committee, met Jason on the way to OT. Gave me his card, said "If he needs anything..." Jason didn't say anything about wanting a job-missed opportunity...?

An Army general showed up Jason said, "NO coins either" (So Go Air Force-Katy) The General's name is like General Generoux Jason said, "General General?" Then went on to imagine what it must have been like for the man Sgt. General, Major Gen., Col Gen. etc, etc.

Ongoing Prothesis discussion:
Today trying to get to Dr. Todd, now head of Jason's care. Jason asked for a "crowbar arm to continue his life of crime. Jason said coolly Dr. Todd(ex Marine) quipped back, " Well, you will need another arm to carry the TV out!" So Jason is thinking what he can propose next... Got any ideas let us know and we will pass them on to Jason.

On a more serious note Jason is noting the extensive injuries of some of the men and saying, "I am thankful that I do not have that injury." Jason says he worries about his vision the most. Let us pray for his vision continuing to be healed.
Many blessings to all who are sending prayers, good thoughts, hopes and dreams for Jason's future and complete recovery.
