I told Jay it was important to me for Aidan to go on to the wrestling match, #1, to help him get his mind off what he had seen, and #2, to help him realize that Rhae is not always priority, and even when something bad happens, he can still do things that are important to him. Unfortunately, this is not always the case in our situation. So, Aidan and Jay went on to Birmingham and had a BLAST! Jay said it was a lot of fun, Aidan was flipping out, and the seats could not have been better if we had bought them weeks before the event instead of 5 hours before it started! Aidan came home the next morning (2am) all smiles telling me about all the cool stuff they had seen and everything that had happened! It really brought a smile to my face (even if it was wretling), that my baby had been able to enjoy something he loves so much!
Since then, we have just been in slow motion I think. Rhae is trying to adjust to this arm and it has not been easy. I'm still hearing that sound that I never expected to hear from her bones and I swear, it's almost like it haunts me. We are adjusting to having to do everything different and hopefully tomorrow we will get out in the car seat if we can figure it out! If not, oh well!!
I hate to be selfish, but this post, I'm just going to ask for some personal prayers. Please pray that Rhae remains comfortable and healing comes quickly. Pray that this does not traumatize Aidan, because it still seems to be bothering him. Also, my Daddy is having a minor procedure done next Wednesday, but because of his low platelet count, it makes it a little more involved. He will receive platelets during the procedure and they will watch him closely for infection afterwards. Please pray that God will give his surgeon a skillful hand, that all involved will properly wash their hands, and that the platelets will take and he will be fine. Thanks!
This is actually her left arm, but the film is turned around backwards.
