Get well soon!














I just got home from San Antonio Texas where i spent the week with Jason in the hospital, he was injured over in Afghanistan  from a Roll over  in an MRAP, he suffered a very bad injury to his arm, where had an open fracture on his left arm, they had to do surgery immediately in afghanistan and Germany to fix the broken bones with 3 plates, 2 in his radius and one in the ulna, he was then flown to Virginia and then to Texas, where he underwent 2 more surgeries, the most recent one was on friday and he ended up being in the O.R. for over 6 hours, (LONGEST day of my life), they then repaired all the tendins in his wrist and hand,  they took out a nerve from his right leg to replace the missing 11 cm of nerve in his wrist, and then they had to graft it, so they took a big piece of skin off his left leg to graft over the missing areas on his arm, so he is pretty banged up! So, all in all he has a huge incision on the back of his right leg, major surgery on his left hand and arm, and then on his left thigh is the skin graft  that feels like the worst rug burn ever x10! The poor guy, was in so much pain, but i am so happy i was able to be there with him to help him with whatever he needed, he always has a great attitude and a smile on his face, He is doing much better now, the doctors are looking at it on thursday to see if anymore surgeries are needed, I am so happy that he is safe and  back in the states and recovering well, I love you and I am so proud of you Jason!
