Aches & Pains

I had something else in mind to blog about today, but this is where we are right now so let's just roll with it. ; )
 Yesterday I got a call from the Kids' Day Out director while I was at the dentist (I have a cavity! Boo). When I called her back she told me Colson had fallen off the swing and scratched up his face quite a bit. She said he only cried a few minutes and was so brave as they cleaned him up.
Bless his heart. You can't tell but there's a rash on his forehead, too. It looks much better today, thank goodness!

So my right elbow has really been hurting these past few months. I know it's from tennis, but it doesn't hurt while I'm actually playing just afterwards. And sometimes when I'm serving. 

Anyway, I finally decided to go the doctor just to get it checked out. He gave me a cortisone shot and told me to keep ice on it for a few days. 
 When I got home after my appointment I threw some things together to keep an ice pack on. A bib, an Enfamil ice pack, a rubber band, and a stretched out hair band. The cold pack felt so good I didn't think much about it until Jason and I went out to dinner and a movie.
He told me he was embarrassed, but the funny thing is I didn't care! ; ) Maybe it's because nothing humbles you more than being a mom anyway? I don't know. I was just excited to be out on a date!

It was pretty bad, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. ; ) Have a wonderful weekend!

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others...

Awe, poor little guy. Little boys are just fast & fearless. The other day my son pushed opened one of those metal glass doors in a strip mall. He ran straight between two parked cars was headed for the road. I ran so fast to get him. I had that crazy adrenaline rush. I felt like I was a lifetime moment waiting to happen. My heart burned. Boys are crazy!!!

I'm so sorry that you and C are hurting right now, but I couldn't help but laugh out loud (and then show Bobby)at your ice pack setup! Hilarious!

Hope you have a great rest of your weekend!

My mom has the same kind of pain in her arm, tennis elbow. She uses one of those velcro strap bands that you put right in front of your elbow. I never understood WHAT in the world that could possible do, but she said it has helped her so much, no more pain.

Linds said...

haha, your elbow all bandaged up is amazing! Sounds like you might have tennis elbow... which I have heard is terribly painful! Hoping it heals up quickly!

PS-- Colson is SO SO SO cute!

The next time Jason says you're embarrassing him... Mention that he wears spandex bike shorts ;).... Hope your elbow feels better! I might have to kiss Colson's nose the next time I see him at FAC.... I miss that boy now that I'm in the classroom!

I think your contraption is brilliant ;)

Jason told us about the ice pack and bib set up. I nearly died laughing, and now that I've seen the picture, I'm laughing even harder. It may be even funnier that you have kept that Enfamil ice pack and the bib! Hope your tennis elbow starts feeling better now that you have the shot!

I know you love tennis, but is it bad of me that I sorta hope you take a tennis-break so that I can see you more often upstairs :0

Summer said...

bwhahahahahaah you wore it on your date, I love you even more now lol! I would totally do that and G would totally be like I don't know you ha! That is cleaver, I can never keep the ice packs in place, I am totally doing this tonight and maybe rocking it at the grocery store with the hubs to see his reaction hah! OK so I am glad to here Colson is ok and I want to know what you wanted to blog about! I have this hunch and I wanna know haha! You have to message me girl! love you hope you feel better, ps the shots work wonders in a few weeks you will feel good as new! love you Summer
