Heartathon, Picture III

Right, so I'm perturbed that I didn't get a heart picture posted yesterday, but, we were a little busy taking care of honeybee Wilder.

Wilder had a minor tumble off a child's chair Saturday which warranted x-rays then a bone scan; he couldn't walk. It's a long story I'd rather not get into, because we are on the flip side of it. He actually took a few steps today. Still waiting on pediatrician's confirmation, but, I'm 98% certain he's in the clear (no fracture on right leg). No news is good news, really.

What an ordeal. Tough time for momma to see her baby sedated, then not get to hold him a whole lot due to small amount of radioactive stuff in his body (had to be careful because I'm pregnant). I'm so thankful the Lord helped us through this.
His beefy 20 pounds (ha) has been heavy and my pregnant belly "shelf" isn't quite protruded enough to just sit him on...not that I'm complaining about my belly not being of whale-esque proportions...just give it time...

Since our lives have been so chaotic, my precious friend J brought us dinner last night, and a cake! She provided a tub of frosting and fortunately there was enough left (couldn't stop "taste testing") to frost it. Peppermint sprinkles make it a flavorful Valentine's treat.

Some people really know me.

I'm so sorry. Bless your hearts. I'm very glad he's ok. There's not much worse than seeing your baby In the hospital and the helpless feeling that accompanies it. (((hugs))) and prayers for brighter days ahead.
