Jason Update 10/19/2005

From his Dad:

Tuesday, October 18, 2005 

Jason’s wounds were cleaned in preparation for his trip.  According to the Doctor his flesh looks healthy. 

He arrived in the U.S. about 7:00 PM.  Dan was able to see him.  Dan said that he did not look as bad as he expected.  He is stable and heavily sedated.

I just talk with Jason’s nurse.  She said that he is stable and able to follow simple commands.  He seems to be aware of his surrounding.  Jodi should arrive in D.C. this morning.  The Army is arranging for Katy, Lisa and my flights out.  I should fly out this afternoon.  Jason will go into surgery today to close his wounds. 

I may have trouble communicating regularly once I leave for D.C. 

Thank you all for nice emails and phone call.  We appreciate your support.
