Surgery Is All Done

Sorry I haven't posted lately, but things have been a little busy around here with Aaron's hand and the holiday season that is upon us. Aaron had surgery on his finger today. He did very well throughout the surgery and after. The doctor was a little disappointed because he was unable to repair the joint like he wanted to. Aaron lost 1/2 of his bone (at the upper joint) when he injured his finger. The doctor ended up putting two pins in and some bone proteins to hopefully help the bone to grow back and fuse together. Only time will tell. For now, he is to spend some time recovering. He will get the pins out in two weeks or so. The total recovery time will be 4-6 weeks. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for him. Please continue to. God has certainly been shining His light on us. I pray your family is being blessed with His presence and goodness as well, especially throughout this Christmas season.

Something to Pray About

In case you haven't heard yet, Aaron hurt his right hand on Saturday. He was working on the door to our back garage. Well, the spring to the garage door sprung on him to his surprise and got his hand quite a few times. The ER doctor said that he was lucky it wasn't his face and that he only had the injuries to his hand that he had. He ended up with some stitches in his thumb and ring finger, as well as some other significant cuts on his fingers/hand. He also fractured the ring finger at the upper joint and tore a tendon. We went to the hand surgeon today, and he wants to do surgery either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. There is some infection in the wound that needs to clear up before he can repair the joint. Aaron is currently on an antibiotic for this. Thankfully, he is not in much pain at this point. God has been so good to our family through this. We are so thankful Aaron is not hurt any worse than he is. We are thankful he is not in a whole lot of pain now. We are thankful this can be repaired with some fairly simple outpatient surgery. We are thankful Aaron is able to still work at this point. We are thankful we get to help Aaron out a little bit. There is just so much we praise God for. Please join us in prayer for the infection to heal, surgery to go well and recovery to be quick. Thank you for your love and support.

A Little Bit of Autumn

Autumn is quite a character. She definitely has her very own little personality. In these videos you will be able to catch a bit of who she is. She is all girl, just like her sister. She loves her baby and her purse. She also is walking now, which makes her a super busy girl. Enjoy!

Leaves Part 2

Okay, we had to have another round of leaf raking, jumping and burying. It was lots of fun!

This time Jayna used a real rake.
Apparently, pushing with the rake was easier than pulling.
Now, this is the face of a very happy child!
It's no longer a spectator sport to Autumn.
Jayna and Autumn had fun together! What a blessing to have these two fun-loving girls in the house!
