I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. I Samuel 1:27

God, I'm Not Laughing

(Keep in mind two things when reading this. Baby A's surgery is Tuesday - I'll be in the hospital with him Tuesday and Wednesday and the Kentucky General Assembly is going back into session for one week starting on Monday)

Tonight, Alex was jumping around the family room. He was having fun. I was holding the baby. Next thing I know, I hear a thump and then a scream. Alex seemed to have hurt his foot. He's a pretty tough guy (he practically bit his lip off Thursday night up at the ball field and didn't cry) so when he cries we know something is up.

About 30 minutes later he would not put any weight on it. So, we were off to Urgent Care to get it x-rayed. My friend, Michelle, went with me while Jay stayed with the baby.

They didn't find a break, but they want us to take him to a foot specialist next week to have it checked out.

I don't know how and the world we are going to get him to the doctor next week, but I'll try to worry about that on Monday. :)

On a happier note, I got my anniversary present a little early.

It's a pink Flip!!! (with the carrying case and tripod) I've been playing around with it, so I'll post some video soon.

Poor little guy!

I'm jealous! I won a flip on a blog a month or so ago but haven't received it yet. Can't wait to play with it.

Poor Alex! I hope you get things figured out! I can help if you need me to!

I LOVE my flip (I used it at the airport with baby Alex, remember?), but am still figuring how to upload... how long does it take you to upload your little videos? Are they from your camera?

Oh, no! Poor Alex! I hope that it is not broken and that it heals very quickly.

I'll see you next week :)

Poor kid. I hope he feels better soon.
