Life's Update

Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of things that you really want to do? Well that's what has happened to me this past month. Life got very busy!

About 3 1/2 weeks ago my husband and I got the bright idea to have a clean-up day on Saturday. Friday night we had our grandson spend the night and his dad was going to come help us the next morning. When we got up we decided that the pile of limbs in the pasture could go ahead and burn down some before Nathan got there. That way it wouldn't be quite so hot to add more limbs as we cut them. Robby's not so bright idea was to pour gas on it! Can we say"BOOM"?Needless to say, he got burnt pretty bad and we had to make a run to the ER.

Nathan met us 1/2 way and took Coby so he wouldn't have to be at the hospital. And then he went on back to the house to put the fire out. And, yes, they called the fire department, AGAIN! This only makes the 3rd time they have been called to our house. And, yes, Robby loves to burn things!

Anyway, Robby suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his right arm that has taken a considerable amount of my free time to clean and dress. We had a niece to come and help with 1/2 of the dressing changes, thank God! I could never have done it by myself! But with the prayers of ALOT of people on his behalf he has healed remarkably fast. Even the doctor was surprised!

So we haven't been doing any fishing, or yard work or anything else! But he is about done healing and maybe soon we can get some things done! He still has to be careful when he is in the sun, but other than that he is healing well.

Check back later and maybe I'll post some photos!
