Cast Number Four and other stuff...

So we went back to the doctor on Friday and much to Carey's dismay, he had another cast put back on. He had high hopes of being able to walk out in a "moon boot" but Dr. Funderburk said no way. He has a walking cast on until April 29. That is another 4 weeks with a cast! Needless to say, his spirits were a bit dampened leaving the office!

Some one needs a pedicure BIG TIME!!!!!

The scar actually looks pretty good! It's healing quite well!

Carey's new blue cast and so fashionable walking shoe!

After we got home, we went over to my Gram's house to play Uno with Grams, Aunt Judy, Uncle Mickey, Erin, Josh, Kayce and Brad. This has become a weekend ritual for us! I didn't play so well but Carey didn't do too bad!
I also received another birthday gift. It was from Grams, Aunt Judy, Uncle Mickey, Erin and Kayce.
It's the Main Ingredients Chile set! How cute is this!

I love the peppers! We love to entertain so this will definitely come in handy!
Thanks for an awesome night! We love you guys!

Today, we went to eat lunch out at Meers in the mountains with my mom and dad. If you haven't been there before, you are missing out! They are famous for their longhorn beef hamburgers and awesome cobbler! I always eat my cobbler and home made ice cream first and this time was no different! YUMMY!!!! You can check out their website...http://www.meersstore.com/ People come from all over to eat there. Thanks for a great lunch Mom and Dad!!! You guys are the best! You know just how to cheer us up! Right through our tummy's!!!!
The Meersburger!!!

On our way out to Meers, we saw a truck blow out a tire and flip just three cars in front of us. Everyone slammed their brakes on and Dad, Carey, mom and I got out and took off running to see if we could help. Carey and Dad helped get the couple out of the upside down truck. Thank the Lord, they were both wearing seat belts and were just scratched up. Mom and I tried to talk to the girl (a 21 year old who was visiting her boyfriend stationed at Fort Sill and from CA) and clean up some of her scratches and cuts. I had some handy wipes in my purse, water, napkins and band aides from the car. They were both so shaken up and also so very lucky! They had flipped on a bridge and thankfully they didn't flip OVER the bridge!

Sometimes it takes things like that to happen right in front of your eyes for you to realize all the blessings and security you have in your own life. We all go through our struggles and sometimes get so wrapped up in them and then you realize just how lucky you are. Our Father will never give us more than we can handle...all we have to do is have faith and just believe in Him and His miracles!

God Bless You!

How scary!!! I feel bad for Carey! I was in a boot for six weeks a couple of years ago, and I think it was the first time I ever experienced depression. It just gets so old, especially when you are active, and he obviously is.
