After last week's haul, I think a week off with no new books was VITAL!




Thank you for the well wishes for my daughter's ankle injury and for the birthday wishes for me last Sunday! As an update on her, her volleyball coach asked me on Thursday if the school trainer could take a look at it. So we met with her after volleyball camp (which my daughter went to support her teammates even though she herself could not participate). Long story much shorter, her recommendation was for us to have it re-xray'ed. Basically her assessment was that 2 weeks post injury her ankle shouldn't still be as swollen as it was or as tender in so many places. So we have an appointment with an Orthopedic Sports Med Dr early Monday morning. We are praying there's no fracture and that she can start to put weight on it and begin to walk. I will say hearing what she had to say finally put a fire under my daughter to begin icing it in a bucket of ice water twice a day as her Daddy had been gently encouraging her to do...but his advice had gone unheeded. Since Thursday, this icing method has made the remaining swelling nearly go away and she's been able to do her PT exercises. 

Over the weekend my birthday celebration continued with my second family, my in-law's. We spent Saturday swimming and eating and enjoying being together. I'm super thankful for my in-law parents and siblings (one of which is Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know)!! Being in their family for 20 years has been a blessing! 

This is the last week of summer that we will have "off". It's called dead week for sports at my kids school so daughter has no practices and my son has a week off before two weeks of band camp begins.

  5. Sometimes a nudge from a non family member is what it takes for them to listen. Glad to hear the swelling is going down. Hopefully, she'll be good as new soon. And glad to hear you had a wonderful birthday!
