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!

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…


I had never been inside her home until the day she told me CPS had removed her children. On that day I had gone over with some clothing for her daughter. When she came to the door I rattled on about what the bags held and if she could use them. Open mouth, insert foot.

 She took me in the first few rooms. My impression was that of dark rooms and general disarray, as you might find in a case of depression. The windows are busted out and they had no water. Their dog had messed in the floor and was jumping in and out of the busted windows.

I immediately told her I would help her clean, organize, repair, anything. I truly wanted to see this young woman piece her life back together. Well, of course, to her I am "the pastor's wife" and she is too embarrassed to let me see the whole picture. So I tell her that when she is finished that I will gladly do a walk through and see if there was anything obvious to be done. My work background qualifies me to be of a particular help in …
