Update on Mom

Mom went to the Dr. yesterday evening and he drained more fluid out of her knee. He is sending her for an MRI. Mom is no longer wearing her brace or using her crutches, she's able to walk now (with just a little limp).

Mom hurt her leg this weekend she heard it pop as she was coming up the stairs from the basement. She couldn't stand the pain anymore so dad took her to the clinic yesterday. The results are popped ligaments, they drained some fluid from her leg, put her in a brace and she got some crutches. Now she has to go to her Dr. and find out what they're gonna do.

Here's mom with her brace and crutches.

Good Ole Chels

Chelsea had to take a picture of herself after she was put into the ambulance. She's been up and around today but she's sore. She will need to have some dental work done to at least 4 front teeth and 1 back tooth as of now. We aren't able to get her to a dentist until tomorrow. Along with pain she's heartbroken, she's not able to go to California with Soffiya this week. Her winter break from school was going to be spent traveling to California, I guess she'll have to delay her plans until this summer.

Chelsea's roommate Lisa from when they were in Flordia sent her flowers.

Prayers Needed

We got our snow storm that was expected, when it came it came hard. Young people sure don't like to listen to old people, they think they know it all. Chelsea and her cousin were heading to a concert about an hour or two away, halfway there they were in a car accident. I told her not to go that the roads were to bad, Vanessa even told her she shouldn't be going. I'm sitting home waiting for John to get there, I'm making phone calls and giving directions. The information I have received was that the girls were on a 2 lane road there was a car coming towards them and someone lost control and it became a head on collision. The girls were taken to the hospital, Chelsea was complaining that it hurts when she breathes, and it hurts to raise her head and her teeth were messed up.

This is the information I've recieved so far, once John gets there I may find out other information.

Update: Chelsea called about 8:30 tonight and they were getting ready to leave the hospital. She has no broken bones just bruised really bad. She's having problems with her teeth so we may have to get her into a dentist on emergency.

Welcome to Hell!

Chelsea and Soffiya went to the house on Tuesday, which is close to Hell, MI. Well of course they had to stop in hell and get their pictures by the signs. They also went driving and found horses and took pictures of that, they also found a buffalo farm and got pictures of that. They also went to John's brother's house and somehow they got a picture of a mouse sitting on a rock. They spent that day driving around and taking pictures. Soffiya will be leaving us on Sunday (weather permitting). According to the weather man we're expecting a big snow storm saturday, I'm praying it passes us by.

One more day to work and then a full week off. We are gonna be on winter break next week. I am sooo glad, I think I need a week off. I hope by the time we return to work the cold weather has left us for good. It has been just too cold and it just keeps snowing. I think we're expecting more snow on saturday.

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines day to all my family and friends. I love all of you.
For Valentines day we are getting snow, so far a couple inches YUCK! I'm really tired of snow. The only good thing about snow at this time of the year is that it wont last. The down side is that we're getting it at all.

Kidz Storm

Saturday we had a kids missionary at the church.

There were games, face painting, balloon animals and a Bible lesson.

The kids enjoyed themselves. The missionary was very good, he works very well with the children.

Alex got a Detroit red wings hocky team symbol on his cheek.

Great Job

Thursday was awards day for the first card marking. Alex came home with 4 awards. One for attendance, citizenship, scholarship and student of the month for November.
Alex also came in top in his class in the multiplication bee. That was seperate from the awards. I'm very proud of him.
