Thursday Thanks Tank #5
*Sigh* I cannot think about much today besides Jonathan. Jonathan fell down our stairs last night and broke his arm. It was a really bad break. I will spare everyone the details. Right when it happened, there was no doubt his arm was broken. He broke both bones in his arm an inch or two above his wrist. He spent about 5 hours at the hospital last night. Then, he had a pain-filled, uncomfortable night of trying to sleep.
My thanks tank for today:
1. No surgery: If the break had been just a bit closer to the wrist or if the broken bones had not been just the way they were, Jonathan was headed for surgery. The doctors really weren’t sure until the Orthopedic bone surgeon came in and did X-rays and was able to set his arm.
2. Seth was in town: Okay, this seems a bit selfish but I am very thankful that Seth was not deployed or traveling.
3. Prayer:This seems like a standard answer for my Thursday Thanks Tank. I was just bathing Jonathan and Seth in prayer last night. Also, I know my family was praying. There is nothing more comforting than that.
4. Cooler Temps: I couldn’t’ be more thankful that the temp dropped significantly today. It was around 99 degree here yesterday. It is not supposed to be that hot in Washington. If it was, all the houses would have air conditioning (most don’t). I think it is only supposed to get in the 80’s today.
