I'm back after a few week's hiatus. Lots going on here. We had 5 immediate-family birthdays within a week, babysat in Albuquerque, the kids from Austin surprised us with a visit one weekend, and we joined Dana and her boys in Austin with Kelly's family last weekend.
On Sunday before we were to leave, my husband was taking photos of the boys in the bathtub and twisted his back. Within an hour, he could hardly stand up or walk. We spent 6 hours in the local hospital's ER and couldn't drive home until Tuesday. With no improvement, we then went into the Dallas VA ER Tuesday night. Still no improvement so went back today. After driving over there (almost an hour) and waiting for awhile, they sent us to the Ft. Worth VA Clinic. After waiting several hours there, we had to leave without seeing a dr. We were hoping for an x-ray or something but now will have to wait until after the holiday weekend. Very frustrating for me, but much more so for him!
I'll leave you with a few pics that we tried to get of us and the four boys. The first ones with the girls and I are ok. Then we took some with all of us and those were ok. But then we tried to get one with Bill and I and the boys and everything went downhill! The little ones were done and wanted their moms. Have you ever tried to hold on to a squirmy 18-month old?
