Updates on the Knee and the Pee

Found out this morning that Tori has a torn ACL and her kneecap is pretty badly bruised. She and Heidi are going to the surgeon tomorrow to formulate a treatment plan. Needless to say, no more basketball for T.Rae. It came as kind of a surprise to me because when we went to Kearney on Friday, he really thought it was just a meniscal tear. Lucky for us, Heidi and TJ decided to do an MRI to make sure. This morning, Tina was telling me that a couple kids back in the day were told that it'd heal up in a couple weeks too, then they played on it and really messed it up. We're sad that we can't watch Tori play anymore this season. She was a joy to watch. I'm still holding out for hope that she can play volleyball with me this summer though. That'd be a good way to get her strength back...

Jack is really getting this whole potty training thang. He went poo three times this weekend in the potty—twice on his own! He is doing a great job and we are so proud. This morning, in fact, I could not get him off the potty to go to Laura's. He enjoys his time on the throne as much as Dad does. Wait 'till he starts reading. We'll never get him off there!

As for us, we're a little tired. I'm very Wau-Pal'ed out after last week. Games everywhere and on Saturday, I was up at the crack of dawn to cover the junior high tourney, then went to Arapahoe to cover the wrestling tourney, then on to Southern Valley for the girls game that night. All in all, about 14 hours of running hither and yon for photos. The truth of the matter though is that I thoroughly LOVE my job, so days like that are a tradeoff for the fact that I enjoy my gig so much!

Take care and have a good week, one and all!

If I can convince Sarah to send me some photos or update her blog with them, I'll have some cute photos of Jack to post. Hint hint, Aunt Sarah!

Ok. Hint taken, Dave. I'll try to find time this week...
