Elbow Update

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPad App

Thank you all SO much for your well wishes for Owen. He is doing so much better. He's not on any medicine for pain anymore and was back to his spunky little self for the first time today.

He and I are still bunking up together at night until I'm confident he can get through the night without needing me to adjust his arm, help him sit up, etc. We've been having the cutest pillow talk.

Tonight he told me that he had asked God to take away his broken arm but that God wasn't listening to him and that made him want to cry. Oh, my heart. How do you explain God and free will to a 5 year old little boy with a broken elbow? I tried and surely failed.

Some of you have asked how Aidan is handling all this. He's been a great sport and is super happy to have his best bud at home again. On Saturday morning before Owen's surgery, I called home so Owen could talk to Aidan. When Owen heard Aidan's voice, it was the first time I'd seen him smile since he fell the night before. Owen told Aidan that he had bandaids on both hands (the cast on one and the IV on the other) and Aidan told Owen all about how my dad couldn't figure out how to turn on the vacuum at the house that morning. It was adorable to hear them chit chat.

Anyway, I'm just rambling now. It has been a nightmare few days but we're starting to come through it. Now if I could just shake this cold and cough, life would definitely feel manageable again.

So great to hear he's on the mend.

I remember when Kendra was in hospital, Connor would wake and say, "Kenna, where you?" it was too pitiful and of course then he'd nag til we could go and see her and then HAPPINESS!

Megan, my heart just breaks reading about what you have been going through these past few days. Sending many well wishes Owen's way, and yours, too.

Their conversation is too cute! Good to see that smile!

Glad to hear things are better - hope you get to kickin' that cold/cough!

Ok, call me crazy but your boys' sweet little conversation made me tear up. *This* is what makes having twins so awesome. Mine are 17 months and they do fight sometimes but they are the sweetest little playmates and cuddlebugs. Each will bring her sister her lovey when she's sad or her milk. Its too cute. Makes the hell-on-wheels first few months worth it...
