Our family is need of prayers again! Joel and I were playing volleyball lastnight and he ruptured his Achilles tendon. He is supposed to have surgery Thursday to repair it. It should be an easy repair since the tendon is still connected to the bone, but it will still be a 4-6 week recovery time.
Please pray that the surgery goes well. Please pray that the recovery is fast and easy. Please pray that our family handles this added stress well. Please pray that Joel does not go out of his mind! (He is NOT one to sit around and take it easy at all!) Please pray that Joel will be able to get back to work very soon! Just pray! THANK YOU!
Just last week I was worrying about, what would happen if something were to happen to me? Last night as we were driving to urgent care, I said, "I'm just glad this happened to you and not me!" Aren't I such a supportive wife?! :) But, seriously, I really don't know what would happen if I weren't able to care for Gavin. So, although this will be tough on our family, especially Joel, I am thankful that it wasn't me and I'm thankful that it wasn't something worse!
Now, to find something for Joel to do...?.....?...before he rips that splint off and starts gardening or something! I think I'll have my hands full trying to keep this one down! Let me know if you have any ideas!
