Hello to all,

Sorry for the numbering problems.
I am using Jason's laptop and being computer illiterate....
Just pretend the items are in a line and numbered 1 to 8.
Like I told Lt Crouch earlier today, "I am a 20th century mom trying to get by in the 21st century hi-tech world."

Jason "Boring Day..."
when I asked him this evening before I left to do the blog.
So let us review Jason's day,
  1. PT where Jason did balance exercises and walking and standing strength exercises.
  2. This afternoon Jason walked the halls for three full laps sitting for a few moments between each lap. Dan and Dow on each side, mom pushing chair as backup.
  3. Home made turkey leftover lunch by Col Martha, Jason said "Best turkey ever!" Martha also washed Jason's hair and delivered a new personal DVD player and all the M0nty Python TV shows (borrowed from Martha's son) After Martha left Jason immediately watched the first MP DVD (with Mom!)
  4. Dinner by WR-baked chicken with rice. Jason ate it all while watching MP. Followed by Russell Stover chocolate, sliced by mom because the face surgery still has his jaw "locked down."Jason can sometimes smell things "a whiff of" so maybe smell cells are reawakening or nerves reconnecting.
  5. Carol dropped by for a quick visit and left smoothies.

6. Visit by Col Andrew who read the blog and said, "You have a good memory for conversation." I didn't have the heart to tell him as a hospice chaplain, listening is my life. Andrew also wanted to know where Jason got his sense of humor. I said, "Came with his DNA, Jason has been this way all of his life." The older Jason gets the faster he gets with the quips. I think of Jason as an Oscar Wilde.

  1. Mom or dad reading to him from Jimmy Buffet's latest book.
  2. Back to watching another Monty Python with Dad and Dan as I type the blog.

Jason may call this day "boring" but I experience this day as true miracle: the gift of Jason's life, your friendship and love and prayers for Jason's healing and recovery. All is gift, I thank you for joining us as companions on this special journey. Many blessings to you and yours on this "boring day."
