Robbie is napping right now after a couple hours of physical therapy this morning. He enjoyed it and is looking forward to getting himself slowly back into shape. We are headed to the wound clinic this afternoon, so we will have a full day today. We had a scare last night – Robbie was brushing his teeth and somehow lost his balance (he has to stand only on his left foot). He was standing with his walker, but he couldn’t stop his momentum and he fell. I freaked out. I was in the bedroom and heard the noise, but didn’t get in there in time. He broke his fall with his arm, but bumped his broken hip on the wall. We called the doctor in Memphis and our friend Michael who is a physical therapist. They both said that it didn’t sound like he had reinjured it. It has not been hurting and they both told us if he had reinjured it he would be feeling obvious pain. We are so thankful that he wasn’t hurt. I have put him under strict orders not to do anything without me, Nate, or another adult with him! I’m not trying to be Nurse Ratchet, but Mr. Independent isn’t ready to fly solo 🙂
I recently asked you to pray for Jerry Anderson. Yesterday in Santa Barbara, California, Jerry passed away. Please pray for his wife Candy, his children, Natalie (11) and Joshua (8), as well as his parents and other family members. I don’t claim to understand why these sufferings come, but Candy’s faith is real and her testimony is strong. She and her family need to feel the grace and peace of Christ right now. Thank you.
