Tonight is one of those nights where I wish I could just sleep and not let anything get in the way of my sleep. I have a lot on my mind specifically Jacob and his wrist. Tomorrow is his appointment with the pediatric orthopedic and this is when they tell us exactly what will be happening. The last couple appointments have been hard every time they have done an xray they have had to go back and basically move the bone and recast it because the bone is growing at an angle. So now its come to the point where they are basically going to do another xray and then let us know if he is going to have surgery or not. if he is to have surgery they would break his wrist and then put it back together with a pin and then recast it and he is out for another 6-8 weeks. I want what's best for him but I also see him kind of falling into a depression over it. It is so hard for a 6 year old to just sit it out during recess for 6-8 weeks which he has been doing but can you imagine having to do it for double that time, also his summer would be ruined. I feel so bad for him, he talks about wanting his normal hand back and I seriously have to fight back tears when I hear him. he doesn't understand it he just sees how different his life has been and all the things he can not do. So tonight the prayers will be constant that a miracle occurred and his bone is now fine and that they switch him out to a shorter cast and he will have his arm back sooner rather than later, I hope its not negative news for my baby. I will update as soon as I get back home.
Sorry for the back to back posts but I have so much to catch up with that I don't want to miss a single thing. We decided to have a joint party for the boys because it just made sense, the weather would be great and it would be one big party instead of three smaller ones, and it worked out perfectly. We had the party on 9/8/12 Jacob's actual 2nd bday (worked out nicely). We put lots of work into making this party a hit for the boys. I painted some of the stuff and even Jackie (Ricky's sister) helped out! She was the one to give me the idea on the centerpieces and they turned out adorable. There was even a car painting station that the kids enjoyed. So here are some of the pictures.
