Just Call Me 'NURSE LADY'!
Just thought I'd share a few pics with ya. Tyler's still in a great deal of pain but he's getting around some on his crutches. Bobby & I decided to take him out yesterday for a bit of fresh air and a change of scenery. Bobby & Tyler went into Guitar Center and played around for about an hour. I think it was good for him to get out but we could definitely tell when it was time to get Ty back home.
Not trying to be gross in showing ya the x-ray. Just wanted to show the break, though. The night of the accident and right up until the time Ty was taken to surgery, they had his leg in traction. You know, the weights hanging at the end of the bed and that whole thing. Well, when the orthopedic surgeon came to speak to us before the surgery, he accidentally bumped those weights - OUCH!!!! Ty let out a big yelp. Boy, I felt so sorry for him. I think the doctor was a little embarrassed :)
Tess & Tyler definitely have their moments but she really loves her big bro. She & her entire 6th grade class made him a card. Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge so you can read some of the things they wrote...some pretty hilarious stuff in there!
We're still receiving meals from various families in the church. It's been so helpful knowing I don't have to mess around with fixing supper. I don't know if I've even shared this part of it, but we've only been going to this church for a few months and it's not like so many people even really know us...so that's been very touching; that so many people would reach out to us in kindness. We also got a HUGE fruit basket from the church. (I actually gave a bag away to one of Ty's friends who came to visit...we'll never eat it all up fast enough.)
Tyler's had a few friends stop by to visit. I guess a lot of people have contacted him on his cell phone and he's gotten text after text after text to come over, but Ty has kinda just had the ones over who he's really wanted to see.
So, we're all hanging in there. Thanks again for the lovely comments, constant prayer and warm wishes for Ty's speedy recovery.
Enjoy a wonderful day!
