Did you notice that I actually had time this weekend to decorate the blog for Halloween? My In-Laws arrived Wednesday and my MIL immediately took over almost all the "Mom" duties while my FIL took over dog duties so I could focus on being Bob's nurse and still get a little sleep (and computer time!) I have officially turned over kitchen duty for the time being so there will be no menu planned this week. Although tomorrow she is taking my FIL the airport so I will be cooking. We will have chicken and dumplings and corn chowder and dumplings. Beyond that I really don't know what the week will be like.
On Friday we went back to the doctor because Bob's shoulder was still very painful. Of all of his injuries this was the one that was bothering him the most but they had said it was just bruised. Well Friday we again asked the dr to look through his hospital records and tell us what the findings on the shoulder were. But there were no findings. They didn't xray it. So, back we went the the Radiologist and guess what he found? Yep, another broken bone. Bob's second left rib is broken and displaced. It's no wonder he's been in such pain. This coming Wednesday he finally has an appointment with an Orthopaedic Surgeon who will hopefully be a lot more helpful than the family practice folks. I can't believe how hard it is to just get an appointment with an Orthopaedist.
We have been so fortunate to have lots of help during this time. Wonderful neighbors who have been there to drop off and pick up our kids, family members who were willing to drop everything fly to our aid, friends who have brought food and offered to do anything we could think of, family and friends who aren't able to be here but continue to check on us, and online friends who listened and prayed for us. Thank you all!
