Poor Guy

Well, we have one sad little guy in our home. Sunday night Joshua broke his leg! He was jumping on our trampoline with several other people, and it got the best of him. I guess he just landed wrong...and broke his tibula and fibula - both the bones in his lower leg.

This sad little boy is doing fairly well though. He is sleeping rather well in light of the circumstances, and we are thankful for that. Karis is driving him crazy trying to take care of him!

Joshua chose to have a purple cast! We thought that was funny. I would have guessed that he would have chosen red - like his favorite race car - Lighting McQueen. But, he chose purple. For two weeks he will have this cast which goes above the knee. And then the plan is for him to have another one that will not go above the knee. The second cast might be water-proof, which would be good so that we could give him a bath, and he could even swim!

For two days, Joshua has been watching movies, but today he ventured onto the floor to play with his cars and airplanes. That was encouraging.

We are thankful that little bones are reported to heal quickly. The doctor said that he should be running around in a month or so. We are praying for that to be the case.

Our family has been so blessed by so many phone calls and e-mails. Joshua's babysitter even dropped off a coloring book to help him pass the time! Thanks Tera!

My sister and her husband came and visited us for a few days this week. We had a great time. I will post more photos of the visit soon.
