Here we go again!

I live a crazy life. Not that any of you don't, but sometimes I get so overwhelmed I have to stop and take a step back to see where the heck I am. Then, I have to have a plan of action to see how in the world I'm gonna tackle all that I need to get done!! August went by super fast so I'm actually relieved that my 50 Christmas card classes are done, the Made In Hawaii show is done and the baby shower for Carri is done. Here's more to add to the crazy life ... after weeks of complaining by my son that his ankle and thigh is sore, I finally told Eric to take him to the doctor to get x-rayed. I decided this after I had this conversation with Crystal, my hair stylist who knew someone's child who kept complaining about pain in his thigh and leg. Well, this child ended up with being diagnosed with a hairline fracture in his thigh! Thank goodness this was not the same with Nolan, but when he came home with this leg boot, I was surprised to find out that he had some kind of sprain in his tendon. Anyway, here's a pic of him on his first day home with his new leg boot. He has to wear this for a couple of weeks and then go to ankle therapy. Soccer is on hold right now...just in the start of a new season. Oh well! **sigh**

I know what you mean Teri, about kids complaining & thinking its just growing pains. My daughter had been complaing about her face seemed a little droopy, I didn't see it...but after a few days she said it again & I did notice it, scared me & took her to emergency & she had Bell's paulsy. I felt so bad, but at least we got to it on time & it took 2 months to go away. She was lucky. So we all go through it, so don't feel bad. Glad she's and adult now, but the worrying never stops.

Boys will be boys...and it's always good to get things checked out...like my parents always say "it's better to be safe than sorry". I've been putting my pain off for over a year and it's gotten to the point where I now need to do something drastic about it. Oh wells...live and learn.

I truly believe that you work best under pressure! Everyone just loves all your ideas!

Oh Teri...he's gonna milk this one big time !! First because he's in a boot and second because he waited a week to go the doctor...the old "I told you I was hurt"...let me know encourage you with this little story. Jessi (17 yrs) and Colt (15 yrs) both had swollen fingers (from different mishaps) and we didn't take them for several weeks to the dr. (we're not bad parents just figured they would heal)...they both had torn tendons !!! and yes...they both milked it :)

Love ya
Corinne
