The Verdict...

is in! Well, sorta, kinda....

The man of the Frumpy house, hauled his cute tush to the Doctor's office today to see the orthopedic specialist (for the Achilles tendon, if you haven't read previous post).
The news is...he can't tell exactly where or how badly the tendon is ruptured. He can definitely tell it is...somewhere...ummm yeah we kinda already knew that!

So, he has called for an MRI. He says since it's already 9 days out from the time of the injury he wants this to go quickly. So we are now waiting for them to call tomorrow and tell us when and where the MRI will be. Then after that has been done and they can see the damage...they will make a scheduled day and time for the surgery.

Yep, surgery...the dreaded "s" word...which in reality will make another dreaded "s" word...summer!

You know, it takes a lot of hutzpah to have to set yourself on your butt for the summer. The summer when you had; plans for a trip to Ohio to spend time with brother and dad, catching a Tigers/Reds game, an anniversary trip to see friends...the summer when you had plans to go to the sand dunes and the lake with your kids for the first time...not to mention swimming, hiking, biking, ball (uh, more ball) know SUMMER!! Vacation time (even tho' you're working).

So, now as it stands, Greg will have the MRI, we will more than likely be looking at another surgery within the Frumpy House (I'm doing great, thanks) this year & we are hoping that our girls have a great summer anyway. With dad laid up and mom working up to 50 hours a week to cover dad's work hours and put food on the table!

You know what tho'!?  I'm at peace...I have a peace that this is going to be for a reason. That we as a family will learn something from this....something that we wouldn't be able to learn any other way. Something that Greg may only be able to learn by being still, as he is NOT a stay home and hang out kinda person!! (Sheesh, if you only knew!)

A way to count the many blessings that we have, instead of looking at all the things that are going wrong. Like the fact that Lauryn is at camp right now having a blast. That Liyah is going to day camp for the first time in two weeks! That they are going to be in our local small town's Summerfest Parade riding the Library float. That they have 2 cousins up from Florida for the month!

That we are blessed with family and friends close by, to help us out and love on us.

Soooo many blessings...I don't ever want to let the disappointments in life take over and steal my joy!!

Hey, thanks for the thoughts and prayers y'all!! I'm going to continue living vicariously through other's blog posts, Pinterest links, Facebook status' and Instagram photos. Some of y'all are having a blast on your summer vacays....and I'm stinkin' jealous happy for ya!!
