A CRAZY Time was had by all...

Oh, yes. I must say -- I hate a boring life. After all... how, well, boring would it be if life was calm, and went as planned on a daily basis. Right?

So, why would I have expected a normal healing time, no problems, bumps or hiccups along the way? In fact, I LAUGH at the thought of normal. Our lives are anything BUT normal.

My healing is going well. My ankle is starting to look better and better as the days go by, but, my doctor extended the time in which I could not bear weight on my foot by another 3 weeks, which means I'm home for another two weeks. Like I said... boring, right?

However. Last week, my husband decide liven things up by getting a nasty, nasty flu that landed him in the urgent care on Friday, and the emergency room on Sunday. Extreme muscle weakness and pain to the point that he couldn't press the buttons on the remote control and had to cancel... CANCEL ... two fishing outings. Now, THAT is a serious case of the flu.

Fortunately, my in-laws and my husband's brother and his sweet wife jumped in to help out (she's the one I refer to as SBee -- Hunter calls her Zia which is Aunt in Italian). Uncle D and Zia picked Hunter up Friday night, drove him three hours to the beach where the rest of the family was vacationing, and he had a blast. He got attention poured on him from his Mawmaw, Pawpaw, aunts, uncles, and one of his cousins. My husband's parents (have I mentioned they are saints?) are "entertaining" Hunter today, and doing some grocery shopping for us, because our house is empty of all things resembling meal-appropriate food (not to mention chocolate, and I didn't even add that to the list!).

So you see... nothing can be boring in this household. But then again, God promised us he wouldn't leave our sides during trials and tribulations. Praise God for that!
