Well I've been missing and missing all of you.
There is no "huge" thing that has happened just day to day stuff that get you down. There has just been a lot of it lately. I couldn't even loose myself in paper.
Then something really scary happened. I have a 9 year old grand nephew, very outdoorsy kid and small for his age. He started complaining that his knee hurt then running fever. This was a Sunday. The next day she took him in and was told he had a virus but did not think the knee had anything to do with it. By Thursday they were in the emergency room running all kinds of tests. A few hours later they were rushing him to Texas Children's Hospital. Turns out he had an infection in his bones causing the terrible pain and high fever. He couldn't stand to be touched. He had a very bad time. He had surgery to put drains in his leg and ankle 2 days in a row. We were all so scared. He even asked his mom if he was going "up" to be with God. You never know what kids are thinking.
It ended up being a strep infection which probably entered his body through a scrape on his elbow. After several days of strong antibiotics he finally started getting better. He went home last Monday and he gets to go back to school next Monday. He is using a walker but he will be able to use his right leg normally with PT.
Prayers and doctors are sometimes a great combination.
He loves fishing as well as hunting, baseball, animals, bugs etc. I've been wanting to make this boat since last summer.
I'm going to put a gift card in it for him and some treats. He has a 5 year old little sister so I made the rainbow box for some for her.
Thank you for stopping by. I really do appreciate it.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
