Avascular Necrosis...... My new diagnosis.

Apparently the bone that has been giving me so much pain, since the night in July that I fell down the stairs, has died. I have never heard of such a thing.

It's a bit mind boggling to me that something in my body has died. The podiatrist has sentenced me to 6-12 weeks in a boot. "Why?" you ask. Well I don't know. Doesn't look like I have any hope that it will come back to life. For this reason I am seeing a Orthopedic tomorrow.

Zach is coming with me. He fell (actually, was pushed) and might have broken his arm. "Might?" you ask. Well, the good ol' Tooele ER Dr, says that he can't tell. He says that the pain that Zach is experiencing is on a growth plate, and that growth plates look fractured anyway..... hmmmmm...

Can't wait to see a "city" Dr and have few answers for both of our ailments.

My sweet Ben

Ben gets to pick out prizes when he does well at school. He brings these cheap little trinkets home daily. No big deal, and not even worth mentioning. Except..........

Today after school, he sat his little sister, Eliza on the couch. He announced "I got sumpin' for you, Zsa-Zsa!". He proceeded to open his back pack and pull out his jacket, extra pants, papers, candy, a toy and then, he yells, "Der it is!". He reached in and pulled out a plastic pink bracelet. He handed it to her with a proud smile. She returned with a big smile and exclaimed "BEN!!! It's beautiful! Now, this my most favorite bracelet, EVER!"

I must admit, I am so proud of him! Brought a tear to my eye.


Argh..... it's been almost a week, and Still haven't heard anything about my MRI.....

I was told on Wednesday morning that my Dr would have the results that afternoon. So I called My Dr late that Afternoon. The receptionist said that the results would be in the next day.....
Thursday-I call. "OH, the results aren't in, the radiologist should have them in by tomorrow"....
Friday- "Well, the Dr is in surgery on Fridays. Can I take your number and have him call you later?"........(HE never called)......
Monday- "We have the results. But the Dr is only in on Tuesdays. He'll call tomorrow."
Tuesday(today)- I called. She said " The Dr is pulling up the results as we speak. I will have him call you back"

Here we are a few hours later....4:21...... Do I call AGAIN? Seriously..... If I need surgery, do I let these cookies operate?

It's hitting again...... Writer's block

Yes, as I sit here listening to The Wiggles, and Ben and Eliza pretending to be dog's, I just can't seem to think of anything to write.

I was reminded today of an incident I had when Ike was 5. I was a young single Mom, and I must admit, probably a little uptight. Anyway, after a church service one Sunday, he proudly gave me a little craft he had made in primary class. It was a folded cut out of people holding hands. Let me emphasize that he was super proud of this craft. That said, I happily took the little gift and slowly unfolded the cute piece of work. As I unfolded I noticed that each little person was anatomically correct. Thoughts of a concerned primary teacher and worse poured through my mind. I quickly grabbed my now confused little boy and dragged him to the bishops office. The bishop kindly took time to listen to my worries, and sent me on my way. I am sure he chuckled a bit after I left..... in my defense; I was truly worried..... now that I have a few more kids, I realize that kids do things like this, and I can sit and laugh about it. I wonder what I will laugh at in the next 10 years :)

Oh... the picture is of Ike when he was 5.......whatta little cutie. Boy, these kids grow way too fast!

My life as a lame cow.

Yup..... that's me... A lactating Bessy. In fact, I am nursing my baby at this very moment. Seems like I have been doing this forever. But, this baby is more demanding then the past 5. She threatens me with hickey's and ear piercing screams if I don't immediately pull up my shirt at her demand. Oh, the joys of motherhood.

I had my very first MRI today. Pretty unexciting. I let my imagination go a little wack-o last night. I imagined being put into a capsule, and then forgotten about.... NOT... it wasn't bad at all, only a half hour, and no capsule. I got to listen to the radio while it was happening. The tech let me choose the station. I told him that I wanted to listen 102.7, he looked at me funny and said "you do realise that is talk?". Um "Yah". Am I turning into an old lady when it seems more comforting to listen to Good 'Ol Doug discuss a high schools tardy policy, than to music? Anyway, I should find out tomorrow if I am headed for surgery (hoping, and praying that am not). In the mean time, I am stuck wearing an ugly 8 pound boot that reaches to my not like. :(

On a happy note.... I LOVE AUTUMN!!!!!! I love to cook, so this is a fun season for me. I love the changing leaves, the cooler nights(and days), the smells....AND PUMPKINS!!!!! I love everything with pumpkin! Pumpkin soup, pie, cookies, ice cream, etc....

Let's try this again....

Okay.... So's been a very long time since I have posted anything to this blog. I am thinking that maybe I try too hard to think of something clever to write.... Sometimes I do have something clever..... But, most of the time, I don't.

I am assuming that no one ever really checks here anymore, So I think that I am going to change this blog into more of journal. This will make it easier for me to keep up, and I don't feel so much pressure to entertain.

I welcome anyone who would like to read or respond to my posts......but, I am totally fine with being the only person on earth who reads this...

Here's to keeping up on my blog. :)

What can I say? I am a very lucky girl. Besides the fact that I have a wonderful extended family and truly the best kids on Earth, I have been blessed with an amazing husband husband. I don't where to begin.

I was a single Mom of 3 boys when he met me, and I lived more than 2 hours away from him. I have no idea why he continued to see me, but he did. I am glad that he did. He would make the long 2 hour drive to spend evening with my boys and I (I don't think that we have ever been on a date that hasn't included at least one child.). He was so funny and helpful, and most important, my boys and I adored him.

I am sure that the thought of marrying us must have terrified him. But, I am glad that he did.

Jay, I want you to know how grateful I am to have you. That I love you more than I can ever express. I want to thank you for letting me be SAHM and for supporting me through all of my endeavors.

I am very proud of you, and though I don't always laugh, I think you are hilarious. I love you more than the sun, moon and stars.
