Av's club diving season was cut short and she didn't compete at Zones in Missouri, as she chipped/fractured her foot jumping out of a boat at a sand bar. Who fractures a foot in sand....my kid!! Well at least she didn't dive in. She is walking around in a walking boot for a few weeks and we hope she will be able to start her freshman high school season when practice starts Aug 9th. I can't believe school activities are going to start ~ summer needs to slow down alil. She goes in next week for follow up xrays to check how well it's healing.
Last week Av went to Milwaukee to see a sports medicine doctor and trainer not only for the foot but for the ongoing knee pain she's been dealing with for over a year now. We also added shoulder pain in when we were there too. She came home with new diagnosis' and a referral for more PT to help strengthen and retrain muscles that are not pulling their weight. I hope after the PT, and foot healing she'll get back on the board better then ever. The last time Av was on a board was at diving camp in Iowa the end of June :( She'll have some catching up to do before her first competition in High School
When bored ~ Av and I tested out the shock collar out so she feels what the dog feels if it should get shocked. This was at setting #3 (we did 1 and 2 too) and it doesn't really hurt it's just a weird surprising tingling sensation..... well I cried due to laughing so hard. LOL
Av's babysitting has really started off well this summer and she is really enjoying it. She has 2 kiddos she's been watching pretty consistently ~ About every other Monday she watches a girl in 1st grade from 9-4 and then 2-4 times a month she watches a lil girl in the neighborhood in the evenings. They keep her busy and on her toes.... I LOVE IT!! Looking for a babysitter just let me know.
Danny went down to CHOW to have that tooth looked at. Thankfully it was just a baby tooth but unfortunately it had cracked and pieces were chipping off. That was his last baby tooth left and the dentist pulled it, no worrying about loose teeth anyore. It was still connected to a root and it was a molar which meant it didn't come out the easiest. The hole was pretty large .... 3 weeks later it's still healing and bleeding once in awhile :( She's wearing a cute hat as it was her last day in CHOW dental clinic.
Danny's new ride ~ a bike trailer/jogger for BIGGER special needs kids. The company that makes them is Cycletote. Some assembly acquired :)
Let's GO BOATING!!!
The wet and HOT weather has made the weeds in the garden VERY happy. So one day Dan and I spent over 5 hours weeding ~ YUCK!! Boy did I feel it for DAYS afterwards ~ so old!!
Chillaxing in tie dye
Danny went to the Appleton Farmers Market with Ms Keren and Ms Emma. Boy did we score not only some great food but we found a lady that is going to crochet him a pair of cowboy boots (for Ms Emma's wedding) and a pair of sneakers. I can't wait to show them off!!
If you look real close standing by Danny in the water (blue float under the umbrella) is Ms Keren ~ YAY, she never goes in the water.
Tomorrow we head up to Green Bay to have Danny's IntraThecal Baclofen pump refilled and chat with his Neurologist. We are seeing an increase with his Neuro's lately so we'll have to see what ideas the Dr has. Then Friday we are going back to see Dr Kasper for follow up xrays, labs, and to check him over... there are still a few things going on that I'd like him to check out. Danny has PT tomorrow afternoon and another one the next day in addition to his monthly massage Friday afternoon so he'll be a busy guy this week.
I have a follow up appt this week too with my Neuro here in the Fox Valley. I'm doing pretty good so I'm hoping for all good things there.
This weekend (if the weather isn't so blastedly HOT) we all plan on going to the drag strip to watch Dan race and see the Jet Cars. If you're not doing anything head on over to WIR in Kaukauna, maybe we'll see you there.
We got our family photos back and they are amazing!! If you are looking for a photographer give All Seasons Photography in New London, WI a call!!
Here are my favorites ~ Enjoy
