Bathing Beauty

Ainsley LOVES playing in water...bathtub, little inflatable pool, or the kids' pool at the Y. She apparently also loves USB thumbdrives...the latest in pool toys.

Just in case...

I've updated Ainsley's wishlist...in case there are any early Christmas shoppers out there. I'm not ever quite that organized, but maybe some of you are. :)

Pinky Carnage


not for the squimish!

Things I never thought I would say...

"Ainsley, we don't climb the oven!"
...as she discovers that there is a "foothold" below the hinge on the oven door, thus by inserting her foot and hanging on the oven door handle she can "climb" it. Oh, brother...

The Surgery Lowdown

Well, the surgery is behind us! Joshua went under the knife early this afternoon. Everything went fairly well. The doctor was able to repair one of the nerves, but not the other. Essentially that means that Joshua will have some permanent loss of nerve function in his finger. The doc also repaired the tendon that was severed, but because of the way Joshua initially cut his finger the doc wasn't able to fix the sheath that the tendon is housed in. All that means is that his therapy will be slightly altered from the original plan that the doctor had for him. Other than that, the nurses all thought Joshua was a model patient. No surprise there. :) Now we have a "rest and recovery weekend" before Joshua jumps into physical therapy on Monday morning.

We appreciate all of your prayers and ask that you would continue to keep us in them. There is still a decently long road of recovery ahead for Joshua. We also have yet to be told how much of the surgery cost (and PT) that we'll be responsible for, but that is sort of hanging over us as a huge unknown.

We'll make sure to post some of the "sweet" pictures for those curious folks...as well as some cute ones of the Ains-a-nator. She's doing great, and hopefully I will have a chance to post about her amazing-ness sometime soon.

That's all for now....
