Sorry, No Pictures!

I'm sorry that I haven't had any pictures lately, but here's an update on the house. Andy is still bustin' up stuff! Tearing up the concrete is a slow but sure process. This past Thursday night we received a fifth wheel to live in courtesy of our youth pastor. Friday a window company came and took all of our windows, but two (the bedroom ones). They are going to store them for us, and then put them back in for us when it is time. We all slept in the fifth wheel last night because the house was terribly hot with all the windows gone! Today Andy and our worship leader, Terrill, put plywood up where the windows used to be. Since the inside isn't gutted out, yet, we are going to stay in the house. With the plywood up we are able to run the air-conditioner and stay where there is more room for the girls to play and Melanie to crawl around. I still plan to continue to pack things away. Tomorrow afternoon I'm hoping to complete the kitchen so that everything is out of the cabinets.

Another update...I found out Friday morning that I have adult acquired flatfoot deformity! A few weeks ago I saw our doctor complaining of ankle pain. Through the process found out that I had high cholesterol and that I would have to see a orthopedic surgeon about my ankle. Thankfully this can be corrected. Tuesday morning I go to get fitted for orthotics--inserts for my shoes. I also get to go to physical therapy 3 times/week for a couple of months. The Dr. is positive that this should reverse the deformity, but if the symptoms don't go away in a couple of months then surgery could be required. Right now it's primarily affecting my left ankle, but the doctor said it's just a matter of time for the right ankle. In talking with my dad today he figures my grandmother, his mom, suffered from this as well. Unfortunately she never had anything done about it. I'm just glad that it can be taken care of.

BTW, I got up Friday morning and walked, too!! :) Yeah me!
