The Tree That Started It All...

The last few weeks have been pretty eventful for the Anderson Family. It all started on Saturday the 15th... I decided to plant a tree my nephew Branson gave me that he had recieved for Arbor Day. I decided to plant it in the grass so the roots wouldnt get in the way as it grew bigger. I found a spot to plant, grabbed a shovel, and started digging. The ground was harder than I expected, so I decided to jump on the shovel it get it further in. BIG MISTAKE! The shovel wasn't sturdy and tipped over with me on top. I reached out my right hand to stop my fall and heard a loud "pop". The pain actually took my breath away. I rushed inside to tell Chad. He originally laughed until he saw how much pain I was in. We hurried over to the Immediate Care where we learned I had broken my wrist in four places...

A few days later we went to an Orthopedic Surgeon, who said I would have to have surgery to set it. The surgery included putting a metal plate in my wrist that would be permanent. Up until this point I have never broken a bone or had surgery... I had the surgery on Monday the 24th, and it went really well. I'm going back for a check-up tomorrow, and I'm hoping they can take off the splint at that point. (The doctor said that the plate will act as an internal cast).

Thankfully, my mom was able to come up for two weeks to help with Jax. I have found it very difficult to dress a wiggly boy, or change a diaper with only one hand. Her help was invaluable and we so appreciated her.

That's too bad, I'm glad your doing better and the surgery went well :), I can't imagine having one working arm with a toddler! Ryker says hi and stills says his prayers with you, Chad, and Jaxon in mind!

Man, sometimes life just isn't fair!

Sorry for your injury and the fact it required surgery to fix; hope you heal quickly and completely!

If it were me, I most likely would have burned that stupid little tree until it was nothing more than a very small pile of microscopic ash. On the bright side, it might someday provide shade and recreation (having repented of its evil beginnings).

Love you guys, and we'll see you in a couple of weeks!

XOXO,

Pop - T.O.S.F.G.

I am so sorry you had to go thru the pain and discomfort of your wrist injury but I must admit I had a great time spending time with you Chad and Jax.

The highlights were Jaxon's smile when he woke up in the morning or after a nap. Winning aggravation, and a special movie night with Meg.

I can't wait to see you in a few weeks.

Love

Mom

I hope it heals quickly. All a mother with a toddler needs is one LESS arm right?
