The past 48 hours have been non-stop between caring for a hurting husband, prepping for Thanksgiving, and cleaning-up after a pooping and puking puppy. I guess you could say I’m just dutifully fulfilling my roles of wife and mother.
Both Ryan and I would like to thank everyone for the positive thoughts and well wishes y’all left for us on Wednesday. I am continuously amazed at the overwhelming support from the blog community- it’s absolutely awesome!
Ryan’s surgery went as well as it could have. The doctor successfully reconnected the ligaments and removed the “floater.” What we originally thought was a piece of bone was actually cartilage. The cartilage aorund Ryan’s ankle had completely separated from them bone so it had to be removed. Once removed, the doctor drilled a few holes in his bone to stimulate the marrow to start regrowing. He has a follow-up appointment scheduled the first week in December… Until then he has a soft cast and is spending 99% of his time laying on the couch with his foot above his head.
Thanksgiving was a delightful and tasty success! We celebrated at my momma’s house with my brother and a few family friends. We enjoyed a popping fire, appetizers while watching football, shared stories about recent happenings, feasted on traditional Thanksgiving dishes, and celebrated birthdays! I’m planning to share more this weekend…
I was hoping to put together a Thanksgiving themed Favorite Finds Friday post this afternoon but sometimes plans don’t go as planned, especially when you have a husband and a puppy who need help. Ohhh the life of a wife 😛
