Cast, Crying, Waiver, Valentine's, and Birthday

Emily got her cast today. She had wanted turquoise but they were out, so she picked pink. And when I say pink I mean glow in the dark neon HOLY COW pink! She will have it on for 4 weeks, then back to the doc for xrays and then if all looks good she'll be back in her splint for 2 more weeks. The family has already signed it and she's pretty excited about that!

Eli spent most of the night and day crying. We aren't sure what's going on with him or what to do about it. He had been up since 3am this morning and finally crashed out this evening from sheer exhaustion. We also had his TA waiver mtg with the RN in charge of schedualing his nursing care. We were approved for 213 hours a month, but right now won't be using that much. We've set up a nice scheduale that we will try out for the rest of this month and see how it goes and make adjustments from there. Our nurse starts tomorrow and Bob and I are looking forward to some time away. We are going to go do some errands and grab a lunch out together, maybe even catch a movie.

This evening we went over to my parents and celebrated Valentine's Day and Ari's 3rd birthday! Everyone had fun and it was great to see our kids! Since everyone seems to finally be better, they are going to move back home tomorrow after school. They've been gone 9 days, not quite as long as our last hospital stay, but definitely long enough. (I'm sure as my mom is reading this she's nodding her head in agreement. lol) Back to getting situated in life with all 7 of us under 1 roof. For about 1 1/2 months anyway.

Too bad they were out of turquoise. It's still bright, but not as bright as that pink that burns your retinas!
