Jackson's Wrist

Just a quick blog to ask for some prayers for Jackson. He has apparently either hurt his wrist or has gotten a spider bite. It is extremely swollen and has some discoloration. The Dr. at the ER says it is a possibility that it is cracked, but not completely sure as "4 year old wrist X-ray's are hard to read because of all the movement still going on with a child's bones" (will someone in the medical field verify that this is true). He is now on a couple of medications, but we aren't totally sure what is going on so don't know for sure that the medicine will be doing much for him (I am in no way in favor of giving my child medicine if he doesn't need it, but something does have to be done). We are watching it for 24 hours and then if not any better will be going to Akron Children's for more tests and possibly blood work.

Just pray that we would figure out what is going on. I do have a couple pics of it, but haven't gotten them downloaded yet.

Treyton did fall down steps yesterday and Jackson was coming up the same stairs so he knocked him down. Treyton has a huge, nasty black eye from the fall and it is possible that Jackson's arm got hurt when this happened. It is also possible that it was hurt on a trampoline that he was jumping on on Tuesday night. It could also look like a bug/spider bite, but there is no actual bite place visible.

Thanks for the time that you take to say a short prayer for this issue.

Summer fun!

It was actually last spring when I took these pics, but I was looking through all of my pictures the other day and these just looked like nothing but summer fun. They had so much fun - just gettin' dirty! Isn't that what summer seems to be all about? If you think differently than that, your laundry apparently differs from mine! 8-)

I seriously had combed the childs hair in the picture above, but it was just amazing how fast it was looking like this again. Marci will kill me!

I should also say...

To those who have been a little impatient....(MELODIE)...I have been working many, many hours a week. I'm so sorry to all of you....(MELODIE)....for the delay. I know you missed me greatly!!

8-) 8-)

It isn't so normal around here after all...

Treyton is now at Uncle Jack and Aunt Paulette's. He wasn't supposed to be going until mid-august or so, but Aunt Paulette got a little worried that something would happen during that exact time and then school would be starting and he wouldn't be able to go.

So...He is there - and having the time of his life to be sure.

He left on Sunday and they said they would just let him decide when he was ready to come back. I should've told them Merry Christmas, because you can be sure if he had his way that is just how long he would be there.

I miss my smart little man, but I am so happy he is getting his time out there with them.

They are just the best!!
