Cast away- round 3

Well we just returned back home from another trip to our favorite :) ortho. Dr. King. I placed a smile there because this dr. is one of the funniest men I have ever met. Let me explain- He is, I kid you not, a very very old man. I'm guessing 80. He has the squeakiest male voice and he likes to use it loudly (maybe because his hearing is gone) But he yells, and he has no patience. A visit to him always leaves us laughing. One of these days I will post a picture for you to see him. Anyway, aside from that Dr. King is very pleased with how well Carson's feet are responding to the casting. To quote him, "Looks good, mom." This new set is very intense--- in fact, Carson's Right foot is completely twisted backwards (ouch!) He's doing great though. We also received our Ilfeld brace- this is to keep Carson's hip in place to help correct his dysplasia. Yikes, is it going to fun getting used to.

Aside from that, We decided to take a detour through the mountains, and are very glad that we did, because sometimes you need to just stop....

"O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches."  Psalm 104:24

Please continue to keep us in your prayers--- I have noticed recently that Carson is having some pipes trouble, and I am having trouble with the scheduling dept. at the hospital.


  1. He looks so happy! I love Carson's expressions, they give away his emotions so clearly.

  2. Oh my gosh! These flower fields are something out of a movie. What a beautiful moment. I hope things continue going well with the casting, and that the pipe troubles are resolved.

  3. I LOVE the pictures! Yes, it is good to stop (be still and know that God is right there with you) Glad you did that too...cause those poppies are beautiful! So glad we got to spend some time together the past few weeks...never enough though...
    Love you daughter #3!
    Mom #2, Oma

  4. Simply Beautiful....Someone has an eye for photography! Well, I am going to frame these! I want to send a present for Carson, but I don't know his size. Or would you like a gift card instead. Let me know, I want to help to spoil my only nephew!
