Quickie Update

Well the Orthopedic Doc says Alex definitely has a separated shoulder. As a consolation prize for such a great job, he gets two broken ribs with that. Well now we know why he can't take those deep breaths he's been having trouble with. He will be down for at least a week and probably sleeping in the recliner for at least a month. There's not much they can do with these kinds of injuries. They have to have time and rest to heal themselves. He's still in pretty bad pain right now but I'm seeing little improvements as the days go by.

Thanks to all of our well wishers. I do sincerely appreciate them. This isn't the worst thing in the world and it could have been so much worse but well ,it's still a life style changer for us right now. Prayers are certainly welcome for us all. I Promise I'll pray for you too when your husband falls off of an ATV!!

Also, my mom is sick so Meme took the girlies for me last night which meant a mad dash to pack them some clothes and head out with them to meet her, deposit the girls, eat a quick bite and head back to Walgreens to pick up those much needed meds! Who knew that 7pm was such a happening place at the old Alabaster Walgreens. Took me 30 minutes to get out of there and I was just picking them up, not waiting for them to fill the darn prescriptions.

Anyway, hopefully mom will get better soon, Alex will begin to mend, and I'll find my sanity again.

Thanks Meme for saving the day for me. You get extra point this week for that one. I know you love being with my girlies anyway!!
