Hello! Karen posting this evening. Chris didn’t make it home today. He’s having some pains and has not had a bowel movement in almost 2 days. The pain may be his gall bladder. They did an ultra sound and no results yet. They are running more tests yet. He may need to have gall bladder surgery. So, he’s still hanging out in the hospital, watching Road House when I left. I feel bad for him as it’s been almost 3 weeks in the hopital and he’s bored. My kids are very excited for daddy to come home. Hopefully it will be soon.
On a different note, Brenden hadswimming night. The instructor decided to try to see if the kids wanted to jump off the diving board. Brenden has never done this before and I knew he had some reservations about it. Brenden went over and got in line behind the others for the board and climbed up when it was his turn. He walked out to the end of the board,stood there for a couple of seconds and suddenly the bottom lip came out and he started crying. I felt so bad for him because he really wants to do it, he just doesn’t have the confidence in has swimming abilities yet. The instructor and I assured him it was o.k. and he was really brave just to get up and walk onto the board. Brenden said “it’s really deep under that diving board!”
Well, I came down with the cold my children have, so I’m off to bed. Grandma Priem helped out the last couple of days and now Grandma Stratton’s back. Thank God for mothers! Aunt Jan, thanks for the loving thoughts and everything else. I’ll have a glass of wine in New York for you with my sisters(if Chris is doing ok) I hope you feel better soon.
Love to all,
