Two Lame Parents

By lame I mean not fully functional although at this point Luke may be thinking his parents are pretty "lame" to be around as well! Yesterday, JW slipped on a jobsite and his knee bent the wrong way. He spent most of the day at the hospital getting X-ray's and waiting for an orthopedic surgeon to consult with him. They couldn't get him in for an MRI so that is scheduled for Friday morning and then he meets with the surgeon again. They believe he has torn his ACL and maybe another ligament and will most likely need surgery! So this throws a whole new dimension into the baby waiting game we are playing right now. :)
I am supposed to be taking it easy however that is virtually impossible now because JW is in a big brace and on vicodin and can hardly hobble himself to the bathroom. So now I am once again sole caretaker of Luke and officially of JW as well! Needless to say my feet are pretty swollen (along with the rest of my body I think) and I'm just a little tired and stressed about how this is all going to play out. It's hard just wondering when the baby will arrive and getting Luke taken care of during that time.... now we also have to worry about when JW may have surgery and taking care of him as well before and after surgery. All I can do right now is pray for an easy delivery (much easier than Luke's) so that I can continue to take care of it all as soon as we get home from the hospital again! Yikes! I was going to take a picture of JW in his leg brace but right now that would require him to take off his pants so I think we will wait until another time for that! haha
