Just thought I would update...

Well we have had a very busy week this week...lets see Warren broke his thumb, playing goalie for the adult soccer team he is on. He stopped a goal but in doing so his thumb got pulled all the way back and it tore all the tendons and ligaments and as they were tearing it broke part of his bone with it out of his lower thumb joint(the one that connects the thumb to the hand) and is in a "cast thingy" (I've always been known for my technical terms..hehe) that he can take on and off to shower....(and good thing too because now he can still enjoy himself at the beach.. well sort of minus the pain!) This week was my follow up with the Dr. in Nashville that has been helping with my eyes since this last episode with my migraines...we have found out that they are worse then they were 6 weeks ago and that I have permanent nerve damage in my eyes (the nerves that control my pupils,and focusing) just from migraines...so I have to wear glasses and sunglasses (sometimes even inside) and try really hard to not strain my eyes!!! yeah right! He said my nerves and all really look like a patient that should be about 90-95 years old...my vision is slowly getting worse..but it is mainly my pupils that are causing the problem..it is like having your eyes dilated all the time...it has no control over amount of light it lets in and has trouble focusing on one thing then another. So I really am in a catch 22...the headaches caused the damage and now because of the damage it can cause more headaches!! go figure!! I took Emily Klair for her blood work today and she was such a big girl...she cried just a little bit till she saw the blood in the tube and said "hey that kinda looks purple..I like purple..Hallie likes purple too, that is our favorite color." The techs were laughing at her and they all thought she was such a big girl. I was very proud of her..can not wait to hear the results to know whether or not she can take this new medicine or not?? Tyler has been at football camp every morning this week. He has loved it and talks no stop about it for the rest of the day!! I love that he gets an opportunity to play without "really" playing. I am sorry, this momma loves football but she will not be letting her son play it..not with his missing L3 and L4 vertebrae (spina bidfa occulta) no way no how!!! My husband keeps telling me I will eat those words one day..but I doubt it!! We are all looking forward to leaving town on Saturday for a week...nothing but fun in the sun and family time. I will have a ton of pictures to post and a ton o' stories to share when I return. Please pray that we have safe travels and a uneventful vacation.

I don't know if the word "uneventful" is in your family's vocabulary....lol.... All kidding aside, I will be praying that "uneventful" is your word of the week!
