Greg has spent the better part of the last 5 days in the chair in the family room. He quickly found out that he couldn't sleep lying down, so he has slept, eaten, and lived in that chair. I took 2 days off and we both have watched more tv this week than we could stomach! Friday he couldn't stand it any longer and took a bath. I washed his hair, helped him into his work clothes, and we both went to work that afternoon. He came home later than I did, wiped out and in pain. Live and learn!
Today Greg went to church for the first hour, then came home and took a long nap on his back! He is in good spirits and still managed to play Mexican Train and entertain the troops when everyone came for dinner tonight. He is planning on going to work tomorrow, as usual. He has to wear both a sling and a swath (a foam strip that holds his shoulder in place). These two things were a little confusing to figure out when we tried to put them on the first time ourselves, but now it has become a part of our normal routine, as I guess it will be for a long time!
Greg, just before going under the knife. It will be awhile before we see this sign of happiness with two hands again!
Gavin playing the guitar. This could've been Jingle Bells, It's a Small World, or whatever he was thinking about at the time.
Greg and Gavin "rockin out"
We took Gavin to Mill Hollow to see Courtney at work and to get him some frozen yogurt. Good friends!
Since Spring has been such a big subject in blogs lately, we thought we'd put our small signs in too. The backyard is still completely covered with snow, but you can see how far it is receding from the wall. And notice that the little perennials in the flower bed in the foreground are already showing and look healthy! Hey, we take anything we can get in Rexburg!
