Update 5-15-11. 10:30 pm. From Mom regarding Jason. He has been through HELL and back. He has had 3 brain surgeries in just over 3 weeks with the last one taking place last night as an emergency. Jason just realized this an hour ago. He thought he was recovering from the 2nd surgery. He has no memory of the third surgery.
