Jozie Update and More

I took Jozie to the Orthopedist on Wed. and they had to re-x-ray her arm before they put a cast on it. The Dr. was worried that since her fracture was all the way through the end of her elbow that she might have to have surgery and put pins in to keep it from moving around. The x-rays came back better than the first ones and they put her in a pretty pink cast from hand to armpit. We were really revealed that she's doing good. I was really proud of her. She did great and even let them move her arm around and straighten it out for the x-ray. She isn't in as much pain this week as she was last week at all. We have to go back to the Orthopedist this coming Wednesday to get more x-rays to make sure things are coming along as they should.

Luke is doing better this week with dealing with the attention Jozie is getting. It finally came to a head and after a big blow up and me telling him that if he didn't shape up he was going to be confined to his room until he could - he changed his tune. I could tell he was really working hard yesterday and the day before to please me and do what he was asked to do when he was asked to do it. Today we are pretty much back to normal - which means things aren't prefect but I don't find myself having to yell at him and beg him to do every little thing. Of course I'm not catering so much to Jozie as I was earlier in the week either...she tries to use her broken arm as an excuse for this and that so I've been telling her that it's her arm that's broken - not her legs!

We went to the beach again last week in the evening to see the sunset and we plan on going again tonight. It's so pretty there and relaxing and the kids love playing in the water and sand. We got a Seal-Tight Cast and Bandage Protector for Jozie's arm. It's a vynal like sleve with a really tight rubber-band like top. It's pretty uncomfortable and she doesn't like putting it on but she doesn't complain much once she gets to playing in the water with her friends! LOL

We also had a nest of Robins hatch out recently in a tree near the house. It was fun watching them grow and just this weekend they have come out of the nest! So's so pictures of them...

They are the lucky ones - we have seen several around here that didn't make it, probably due to the wind and rain storms that we had earlier in the spring.

Aw that has to be tough with Jozie's arm. I feel bad for all of you. At least you got to play at the beach still. Aw on the robins too. :)

I love the pictures of the robins. Every year since my husband and I have been together, a bird family has nested on our front porch. For some reason they bypassed us this year. I miss that sign of the paaing of the spring and summer seasons:(

Glad her arm is better than originally thought!

I'm glad she gets to swim! It would be a long summer with that cover.
