Still Recovering

Well, Alex is still recovering and will be for a while. He is doing pretty good so far. If I were him I'd already be stir crazy but he's doing ok so far in that dept. He's still on the meds so I think that helps out a lot. We took the bandages off on Monday and it's not so bad looking far as I can tell. He has one larger incision on the top of his shoulder and 4 smaller stitches from the scopes they used. Fortunately two of them are in his tattoo so I think they'll be camouflaged.
He goes back to Dr. Davis on Thursday to check his progress. Keep us in your prayers. I'm sure the therapy and all will be a long process and Alex uses his arms way too much to not have them working 100%. Thanks for all of you who have commented or sent your thoughts and prayers. We've had some great church friends who have made us wonderful meals too. They were delicious and greatly appreciated. Isn't it such a blessing to have a church family to depend on??

It's been a long and emotional journey for me also with Al's injury. It's tough realizing what life w/out him being able to help out is like. But, we've kept on going. Clara Paige had a birthday party last Sunday at Vestavia Bowl for a friend from church and she had lots of fun. She made me help her at first with her bowling but after two turns she got the hang of it. It was loud, crazy, fun and she loved every minute of it. I think there were 30 kids there. Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it again.

The twins are keeping us busy as usual also. They are growing up so fast it scares me sometimes. They aren't my little babies anymore. They say things that just crack me up. Gracie asked for the snack bag I keep in the car yesterday. When I handed it to her she said in her best grown up voice, "Let's see what we've got here" before she made her selection. What a hoot!

Have a great rest of the week everyone.
