New Layout!

Well? What do you think of the new look? I know it's not perfect. But I'm still proud of what I've done so far. I still need to do some tweaking to see if I can get the words out of the borders so you can read it better. But, it will just have to do for now.

It's really amazing what I can do when I am all alone in a hospital waiting room with NO kids around.

The doctor just came out to tell me that Tom did fine. He had surgery on his shoulder. I feel terrible that I don't know the name of the bone. But, for once, this surgery wasn't my responsibility. Tom has had everything under control and I've just been going along for the ride. I do know that it was his A/C joint (not rotator cuff). The cartilage had worn away between two bones, causing lots of pain when he lifted anything with any weight (like our kids). So, they shaved some of the bone away to provide more space for free movement. That's the best I can do for a description.

He will be in some pain (due to the grinding away of the bone - Ew!). And he will be in a sling for a while. Unfortunately it's his right shoulder (and he's right handed). I think I'm just now realizing the impact this has on our family. I mean ME! Uh-oh. This means that in order to suction Harlie he will have to do it with one hand - and his left hand at that! This could be bad. Very, very bad.

Please pray for a speedy recovery. Seriously. Do it now. Please.

Thank you,
Christy

I like the new design. Funny now that it's gone, I can't remember what the old one looked like. I hope Tom has a speedy recovery!
