This past week went by so fast I think my head is still spinning. Jonathan hurt his knee dancing at a wedding and it's gotten progressively worse. Monday he went to see the orthopedic who sent him to have an MRI done the next day. We got the results from that Wednesday and scheduled surgery on Thursday. Cole got really sick Wednesday night and I had to take him to the ER. He slept downstairs with us which meant that I go NO sleep. Thursday was surgery day and there was no rest there, but Jonathan got a good nap. They fixed the tear in his meniscus and drilled holes in his femur to set up scar tissue. In layman's terms he's on crutches for 3-4 weeks and can't put any weight on his left leg. He also got a shot in his right leg because he's getting old (cortisone for arthritis). I don't think we'll be doing any more dancing for a while.
Cole is doing much better. He had a great day Thursday and has done really good since.
I registered Elizabeth for Kindergarten Friday. Still can't believe that we're ready for that. Maybe it's just me that isn't ready for that.
Sarah Grace is getting ready for preschool! Two mornings a week it will be just me and Cole! I have no clue how to act with just one kid, but I guess we'll figure it out together.
The patient (Jonathan) is doing well. He's sore from just using his right leg,but he's ok. Apparently there's little pain unless Cole smacks his knee.
I'm looking forward to getting Jonathan off crutches as soon as possible. I don't like doing bath time and bed time by myself!
