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

Forget about the cabnits the 80's clothes are coming back, maybe the kitchens will too?????? I just paintes and added molding to my 80's cabinets.

hit up Brandy for all the home improvement help- her and Jason put HGTV to shame...

glad you're moving forward with the house selling- it's been a while since I've had a chance to catch up!
