Today Ryan and I both had a doctor's appointment. His was with the opthamologist, and good news there!! His vision in the left eye has improved since his last visit!! There is a possibility of doing surgery to help the eyelid open up a bit more, but that is just a possibility at this point. They will see him again in a few months.

My appt was with the orthopaedic surgeon. He did do xrays on the right shoulder, the side that wasn't broken, but is having pain. The physical therapist thought perhaps there was a dislocation. The good news is there is no fracture or dislocation! To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to them putting back anything that was dislocated!! So I was glad to hear there wasn't a dislocation, or a fracture that may need surgery.  However, that leaves us with they don't know what is causing the pain....and that is a bit disappointing. The Dr. does think there is a sprain in the rotator cuff, but he also wants me to see a rehab dr. that will be able to look into the head/neck/shoulder pain. I will see them next Monday. Thankfully the pain has not been as bad as it was last weekend, but it is for the most part constant.

We did have a great weekend here together! It was relaxing and low key, which is just what we needed! Sunday morning Ryan was whisking eggs, Emma was unloading the dishwasher and I was slicing bread for toast. Those two were singing John Denver's Country Roads. I couldn't help but smile as I was enjoying doing an "everyday" task, with those I love most on this earth!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the weekend:

"I definitely shouldn't drive for awhile."--Ryan, after playing Mario Kart

"Daddy sleep at Gr's? Daddy sleep in he bed? Oh! Good night, Daddy."--Aiden

"Oh buddy, you can't tackle daddy just yet!" --Ryan, just after being tackled by Aiden

"I'll come up and give you a kiss daddy because you can't come down and give me one."--Moriah, from the bottom bunk at bedtime

"You just wait, I may not be able to get you now, but in a few months when you can rough tough tackle....ooohh, I'll really getcha' then!"--Emma to Ryan


  1. Those quotes are great! Thanking God for what He has done and what He will continue to do!

  2. We're all smiling with you! Glad to finally hear things are feeling normal again! Still praying!
