It's been a bit of a whirlwind. Paul had an MRI on his knee last Thursday, we'll receive the results on Tuesday (aah, to have a Dr.'s 3 day a week work schedule, shouldn't complain, I'm thankful for all they do, just anxious to hear the results). It takes a lot to keep Paul down and he went back to work last Tuesday, swallowing the pain. Coming home early most days in pain with major swelling, but he's able to ice it often and rest every chance he gets. He gets around fairly well with his brace and crutches and can even drive, barely. He's hanging in there and staying positive. In the midst of all this, I came down with a chest and head cold, coughing that kept me up half the nights. Ya, quite a pathetic pair. Felt bad I wasn't 100% to take better care of Paul & family, it's been so long since I've been sick, it had to be now.
I wondered how the girls would do during all of this, they love to get out and have fun. I was pleased to see them understand that daddy is hurt and mom is sick, so they were patient but would often ask, "are you all better now?" It was sweet to see Sophie, out of the blue, go get a glass of ice-water for Paul while he was elevating his leg. And Sage, although she says she's too old for naps now, come lie down with me while I was resting and end up napping with mom just so she can be close to me. They have been happy and helpful. Nick was busy with work, swim team, & school, but I can't thank Josh enough for taking over, preparing meals, and filling in where needed. He is always great to help. And Trevor, as always, played and enjoyed the girls like he does. They can't get enough of Trevor, he's the coolest thing in their eyes!
Sophie and Sage dressed themselves and did their own hair today, notice how Sophie chose her favorite color, not pink- RED, and Sage dressed in fashionable layers, sporting her favorite Beijing olympic T-shirt on top :) They must've put 5 things in their hair, fancy girls.
We had a low-key and very delightful BBQ on Sunday...
A dessert 'to die for', thanks Danny & Lindsay. What a good time, just what the Dr. ordered!
And thanks Kathy for taking my boys to the Bee's Baseball Game Friday night. They had a great time and I was able to get some things done. We feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends, at home and blogging friends!
