Marie's Musings

Musings from the mundane day to day life of a mom of 9 to more serious ponderings of the day.

I just found out that andrews proposed work schedule change was approved. He now will be working from 730 to 4 most days. He will still need to cover somedays til 5 as people are sick or on vacation but this is huge! It puts him home then with commute at around 5 or so. I am really excited. Its been rough going with the later schedule he has been working. When he stays til 5, he often isnt home til 630 pm

It puts everything later in the evening and we dont get to spend as much time with him. So this is a definite praise.

On another note, not so good one, Josiah has likely fractured his growth plate in his ankle. He was coming down the outside stairs and tripped over a rock and bent his foot completely back under him. I took him in to the clinic right away. Thankfully, he had the prescence of mind to get injured before 5 pm (lol!). Anyway because of where he broke it, it doesnt show up well on xray. The doc thinks though based on how tender that area is and a small spot on the xray,that it is indeed broken. So she sent the xrays off to the hospital to be reviewed by the radiologist and splinted him for now. If they come back and say broken, we cast it, if not we keep it splinted and treat him for a severe sprain. We likely will have to go to an orthopedic doctor given the place he broke it. The kids found andrews old crutches in the garage and the nurse helped fit them to josiah. So he is off to school today, not sure how thats going to go.

Gideon video swallow study is this morning at 1115 am. So hopefully that will either clue us in or rule something out!

God is good ... all the time

    Hurray for the better schedule! My husband works at least a couple nights a week until 11pm, and it really stinks, so I can appreciate how happy you much be about this!

    Poor Josiah! Lord, please give quick healing to his ankle, and a safe, easy time getting around on crutches in the meantime. In Jesus' name, amen.
