Ankle Update, and Tuesday Kid Antics

Well, I just got back from the doctor, and I need surgery. I need to have the ankle joint cleaned up, as I have a bone fragment in the joint. I then need to have a ligament transfer. My ankle joint is very weak, and without the transfer I will continue to have problems. So, I will get the transfer. The doc said that I will be in a cast at least 10 days, then a walking cast for 6 weeks, then physical therapy.

Onto the kids antics. I have 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. As any mom of boys will tell you, they like to rough house. My boys are no different. Well, this morning as we were getting ready to head out the door to school my boys were rough housing around the back door. All of a sudden I hear glass breaking. I run to the boys to find that boy #2 had pushed boy #1 into the glass pane on the door. Well, no more glass plane. Luckily, no one was hurt, except for boy #2 started crying....more scared than anything. Maybe now they will understand why I tell them not to rough house near the doors (mind you, I have french doors throughout the house). I just finished removing the wood trim that held the glass in place. Now I have to measure out the hole and go get another pane and reinstall the wood trim. Luckily, I do know how to fix this little mishap. Boys will be boys. No one hurt. Maybe a little lesson will be learned. Gotta look on the bright side of things. Life with kids is never boring.


  1. I once stuck my hand through the glass door window because I was running and pushed the handle with one hand and the door with the other and the handle didn't open the door, so my hand went through. Cried because I was scared more than hurt too. It is scary though. Sorry to hear about the surgery, and I hope that they get it all fixed up for you.

  2. that glass prob needed to be changed or cleaned anyway dont ya think!
    Hope the surg fixes the prob!

  3. Ha! They'll never learn.

    Good luck with the surgery and hope it is just the ticket to get your ankle working right again.

  4. Good luck with your ankle.. Oh man, I have so much to look forward to with kids.. :)
