This and That

Hi Everyone!

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far!

I thought I'd post a few updates on things...

First, Mom had a follow-up visit with her surgeon on Friday.  He told her that the bone in her foot is healed up and she can "start" walking on her foot with the boot (one of those big plastic jobs).  She's going slowly and hasn't tackled stairs yet but she's doing pretty good.  She says her ankle hurts but when my oldest son started walking on his after he broke his foot it made everything down there sore.  I'm sure since she's been off of it for basically 3 months it will take some time to get back into the swing of walking on it again. 

Bob (youngest ds) is doing well after his auto accident.  His eye is healed up for the most part...still has a couple stitches but they will fall off eventually (or so they tell us).  The nerve in his leg is getting doesn't hurt nearly as much as it did and his black eyes are finally gone!  No more raccoon eyes ~ yeah!!!  He's still got some broken blood vessels in one of his eyes but that is going away too.  Maybe in another week or so I think. 

I have a couple new pics of my donkey friends....   They are starting to get their winter coats and looking a bit shaggy.  I love petting them when their hair is so long.  It's very soft and warm :)

As you can tell from the pics, fall is in full swing here...
virtually no leaves left on many of the trees and it's been very cold here at night.
I can't believe it's that time of the year already. 
Seems like we were just talking about how hot it was a couple weeks ago. 

Anyway, that's what's going on here...
Hope the rest of your weekend is great!
