This kid owes me big!

Well after he pulled the pin out, the doc said it had to go back in because it was only in for 6 days...he sent us to the ER at StFrancis (the heart center) that should have rang some bells in my head right there....well we get to the ER and they sign us in and then tell me that they have no Pediatric unit and we will have to stay there for the night....the nurses were nice about it and put us in a little alcove and we got some sleep, the next morning however was challenging entertaining a well rested and very hungry and bored (no tv, only game boy and books) little boy that is hard to keep down under normal circumstances. I nearly jumped for joy, may have let out a little squeal of delight when the OR called for him at 10 am, I had visions of being there all day too! All in all it wasn't that bad and 18 hrs after we left we were home again with 2 pins in and a bigger harder cast!

On the house front...we were going to put in new kitchen cabinets to spruce up the late 80's style a bit, however they only have 30 inch cabinets in stock and anything else we have to order...I think 30 in cabinets will look like we did a half-ass job and don't think we have the time to order....Just don't know about that one, have to think on it some...all those HGTV shows say to do the kitchen

Back to the hospital!

In a fit of anger, Liam pulled the pin out of his finger....so back to the hospital we go! The Dr wants him admitted so he can get him on the OR schedule for tomorrow! I'm worried about the anesthesia, it was no picnic last time, but the doc says the pin has to go back in....wish us luck!

We're getting geared up to get this house on the market and get the hell out of Dodge! Actually got a call from a guy about interest our unit last week for his girlfriend that's getting a divorce and wants to stay in the area....that would be too easy

-fugly old lighting fixtures replaced
-We (as in all five of us) painted the hall last weekend, that was fun.
-Washed all the fingerprints off the white woodwork.

-Holly Hobby half bath has been spackled and primed for painting.
-Had our 'guy' come in and measure for new tile floor.....
-He's also gonna do new kitchen cabinets too

....then I think we're finished and ready to sell!

I've been averaging about 2 Hefty bags of trash a day! still need to get into the attic, God knows whats up there :-O When I'm done throwing stuff out, there'll be so much room that we might not need to move at all!!

That boy of mine!

He really did it this time! Monday afternoon Liam closed his finger in the bathroom door at school and broke it! Not only did he break it, there's a piece that's displaced and rotated and requires surgery....so that's where we'll be tomorrow (pre-surgical testing ) and Friday (actual surgery for wires to hold his finger together!

It truly is always something!
