Another Week

Well, the pins are still in. The doctor was all set to take the pins out but when he found out how bad things got last week following therapy he said no way. The pins must stay for another week. He is afraid the bone will give way again if the pins are taken out. It is actually better for them to be in right now as the bone is stronger with them in. Hey, it's healing so we can't complain!


  1. I'm glad it's healing. Someday this will all seem like a bad dream. My son went to basic training yesterday.

  2. Aww so sorry they couldn't be removed right now. Better to be safe than sorry though. Hope he's still in good spirits!

  3. Mary,
    Oh! {{{hugs}}} I know you must have such a mix of emotions in your heart! I have you all in my constant prayers.

  4. Patty,
    Yes, I agree completely! Although we liked him, I think the first doctor he had was way too quick to take him out of the cast. I wonder if the surgery would have been necessary had he left him in one. So I am glad this doctor is not risking it now with the pins. Although he did give him full permission to play a gig Sunday night which has this Mama nervous LOL!

It's been quite a while since I last blogged! Oh, I have tried a time or two. But, somehow the words just didn't flow the way they used to. There have been some changes in life.

We still homeschool our children. Our household is still full of animals, laughter, and noise on any given day. I hope to share that with you soon!

And so it begins...

Once again I find myself arranging ballerina buns and finding missing tap shoes. A new year of dance has begun and my girls could hardly contain their excitement.

The fun of pulling socks over shin guards is also here. The only difference is that it is now my sweet boy that is playing soccer. They can start at the age of 3 here and he was excited to play last year. But when he arrived for his first practice he balked and retreated to the safety of Mama's arms. He was barely 3 at the time and was even still in a pull-up so we really weren't surprised. This year, however, he was ready! Funny how they can seem so big at home and look so tiny on the field! He did quite well at his first practice though. I had no doubt he would. From the time he took his first steps he would grab a ball and dribble all over the yard. (Dribbling in soccer is when you see them lightly kick the ball to move it around the field. Very important skill as they must be capable of maintaining control over t…
