Aqua Man Makes an Apearence!

While we were in Minot the night before Tim's surgery we stayed the night at a hotel. Before going to bed we deiced to visit the pool. This is what I found lurking around in the waters.

As this creature got closer I started to get nervous.

It kept coming closer and closer what was I to do!

Then it dawned on me that I could take him down. I was able to out dunk this creature!

More gross knee stuff!

Here are some pictures of the inside of Tim's knee. They are neat but kinda gross. I can't tell you what they are doing but I do know it involved a drill and some pins.
Tim is doing ok. The pain still bothers him but it gets better each day. He can now bend the knee and start walking with out crutches when it is comfortable. He is going a tad stir crazy wishing he could go back to work. But if he is paitent in time it will all be worth it.

Tim's Surgery

Tim is doing just fine after having surgery last wednesday. I have a coupple pictures so you can see how jolly he is when he is on his meds. He was such a trroper after his surgery. I draged him to Niagra to attend the wedding of my cousin Angel. He spent much of the time sitting in the recliner but did attend both the wedding rehersal and the wedding/recieption. How was his mood you might be wondering. Good untill the pills wore off but that was usally when we got home. Grandpa and Tim even tried to race down the hall way and I must say that grandpa is still quick on his feet!

We went to the nurse on Tuesday to get his knee re bandaged as it was already falling off due to velcro issues and sweat pant issues. So I was able to take a picture of what the knee actually looked like under all the bandages.
I must say that the new bandages didn't last long either they are already falling off.

The nurse did say that it was healing very nicely. So that is good news. He is also able to put more pressure on it as each day goes by. I have even caught him trying to shuffle across the room with out his crutches. Don't worry I don't let him get too far before I get on his case! Please pray for a quick recovery and patience for all of us!

I Found It!

When my sister and I were little our mother used to tell us about the boxcar children. She would say stuff like. "The box car children would love to have peas to eat" or "The box car children would love to have a warm coat like yours" These may not be exact quotas but it usually involved us complaining about something or another. Any way I think I finally found their home. Now we can send the Boxcar children all the stuff we didn't want as kids. They were hiding up here in ND along HWY 2 all along. We just didn't know it!
