My poor little Ruby Anne has her first broken bone!A broken toe!!!! We have VERY heavy bench seats at our dining room table and one of these crashed on to her toe (almost 2 weeks ago now). She has a compound fracture, a big wound over the break and they think she dislocated it too! This pic was taken last night (sorry about the blurriness). It is very infected. They are going to decide today whether she needs a General to clean it out. We have been at the Docs EVERY SINGLE DAY to get it cleaned and dressed, we spent all day at the hospital on Friday and will have another hospital day in the next couple of days!
Then to top it all off Joely has Bronchilitis AGAIN, they think it is going to asthma now, so my tiny little boy has to have a puffer! AAAAGGGHHHH! It's no wonder i am dreaming about the doctors rooms at the moment!!!!

OK, here are a couple of links for you!

My Baby is ONE!!

Baby, Happy Birthday!

You have bought such a joy to my life, Joel. Through this past year of struggles, you have made life bearable. The bond we developed as i carried you, as we were told you had a severe disability, as we found out you didn't, as you suffered from colic and a hernia, as you had a severe reaction to your immunizations, as you have developed slower than "normal", as we lived through Daddy's sickness... You made me smile throughout it all.

I praise God for you daily, for the light you bring to our family.

It was such a shock to find out i was pregnant again with my 4 Th bubba in less than 4 years, but you were worth it! I would do it again in a heart beat.

I love you Joely-Poly-Rock'n'Rolly
