A better day

Thank you for all of your suggestions!

And as Kathryn said, today he will take a fantastic nap....yes ma'am he sure did.

Granted....he took it with me right next to him, but that was an accident. I had every intention of getting up once he fell asleep, but the next thing I knew, I was waking up after falling asleep right along with him. He did, however, sleep for an hour and a half. The first half hour was on his own; then, he woke up. I was determined he was going to sleep longer because I knew he needed to. So, I laid him down next to me and just stroked his hair. He eventually drifted back off to sleep and slept for an hour.

Jeremy was home today (more on him in a sec), so we all went to a high school baseball game. Jeremy's school was playing "my" school (I still claim it even though I don't work there at the moment). When we left, my guys were winning! Both teams were doing really great, though. It was nice to get out and do something different. Collen loves to be outside, so he enjoyed himself.

Then, we came back home so Collen could eat and I could get dinner started. I draftd my mom to come help tonight since Jeremy's not the swiftest of movers these days. I needed her to help with Collen's nightime routine and helping him back to sleep during his several stirrings once he's down for the night. I ended up having to get him to sleep because he wasn't having any part of anyone else putting him to bed. My mom ended up cleaning, which was NOT my intention at all. I eventually joined in and was able to get some things accomplished. :)

Jeremy's ACL is fine. Thank the Lord! He might, however, have a dislocated or fracture kneecap. We're waiting for his MRI to be scheduled. Once he goes for the MRI, we'll know what we're dealing with. The doctor did say, though, that he didn't think surgery would be needed. Jeremy is walking better today, but he's still in a lot of pain if he turns his knee a certain way. I'm hoping and praying it heals quickly.

Thank you all again for your suggestions and advice. :) I really, really appreciate it!

  1. I feel so honored to be mentioned in your blog! :) Made my day...I have followed your journey since you lost Ayden. I have prayed and cried and laughed with you...Amazing how this thing called "internet" manages to connect those who might not otherwise ever be connected. Keep snuggling that boy...There are two kinds of children ya know?!: Spoiled and Negleted :)
    Glad to hear it's not the ACL...that's a heck of a surgery/recovery. Praying for you both...
