Seriously…we do need a break when it comes to medical stuff.
The week after Jody’s funeral a nasty flu went through childcare, through the Friedman (Kalissa’s family) house and Kelli got it too. Poor Gannon was on the tail end of getting it. Then he got his shots..then he was teething…then he got ANOTHER ear infection…and then his face broke out like this….
Poor guy. We thought it was an allergic reaction to his meds but it turns out the doctor said it was a virus. Thankfully he wasn’t as crabby as he looks in the picture. Through it all he’s been a trooper.
He goes back to the University of Iowa Clinic on Friday. I’m hoping we might get a little closer to knowing what’s going on with his tummy. I’ll keep you posted.
…and then there’s Craig….Friday they were chopping earlage. Craig got off the chopper and twisted his ankle. Immediately he knew it was bad so off to the doctor he went…and came home with this…
The x rays indicated ligament damage. How extensive it is was up in the air. With the swelling nothing could be done until possibly today after the do an MRI and get the results.
He was sent straight to the podiatrist and he even hinted at possible surgery. UGH.
Being he couldn’t work, we went to Luna Valley Farm for pizza that night…thus the crutches you saw in last night’s blog post.
A big shout out to Grandma Debbie who really helped them out. Gannon needed to be to the appointment but Craig couldn’t drive so Grandma Debbie, Craig’s mom, came to the rescue. The kids are so lucky to have her!
This is not what Craig needs…and not what the farm needs. With the terrible spring and now rainy fall, they guys have gotten little done. Craig seems to think he’ll be working regardless of what happens with his ankle but me, I’m not quite as optimistic. I am hoping for the best.
I’ll give you another “how we’re supporting the doctors report” when I know more. Seriously, it’s time for our family to make it through at least a week without a trip to the doctor…dare I ever hope for a month?? It won’t be October..I can see that already.
