Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all of you! This is a wonderful mothers day...Jared bought me a gift on his own, with his own money and the best part is he REMEMBERED what I asked for, I told him what I wanted over a week ago!!!!

I had my other kids down here for the weekend and it was fun to have my family around.

Jared has a new cast, this time, if he keeps it on until Tuesday, he only has to do occupational therapy one time next week. Then if he waits another week, they will take it off and he will be done with occupational therapy. He will still have some limited use and tremors for a while, but that is something that will take time to heal, we have plenty of time. We continue to count our blessings and thank Heavenly Father for all he does for us.

I received a text from Emily, Bella's mother, and she let me know that Bella has received most of her sight and she can eat on her own, what a great mother's day present for her. Bella was the two year old baby that was at PCH.

Happy Mothers Day, give your kids an extra hug tonight!

Jared's Secret...

So Jared followed through with his secret....the one to help get his right hand working faster...A CAST! Yes he had the OT put a RED cast on his good arm. Well, following through was one thing, however, it didn't last long. The cast was put on Friday at 2:00 pm. Jared had me take hiM to his dad's work so he could show him, and tell him that he broke his wrist in therapy! I couldn't even go in the office with Jared because I am terrible at lying, or as Jared was trying to claim, it's not a lie it's a sin of omission.

I thought Jared was in bed at 10:30 Friday night, when I went in to check on him, he had a butter knife trying to cut off the cast. Yes, he only made it eight hours! I chased him to bed with a slight scolding, hello, a butter knife! So the next morning I went in to his room and what did I find....another butter knife, a flashlight, lots of little pieces of cast and a bloody towel. Jared nicked his stomach several times while cutting off the cast! Arrrgghhh! Lee finished the job for Jared, no more cast!

Always an adventure - sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, everyday a new journey!
