Landon Update: When One Door Closes...another falls in the street


Thank you so much for taking the time to write me those sweet comments about Landon. I was having a low moment indeed and needed some understanding and boy were you guys there for me. Thank you. Here's a little Landon Update:

I am slowly realizing (I'm slow on the uptake), that there will never be an end to worrying about my kids. Landon gave us a real scare by waking up Friday morning with his arm swollen to three times it's size. I ran him to the doctor who was mystified (fabulous.) He is now on anti-biotics. It's getting better, the swelling has come down a lot, but having to watch this thing like a hawk is exhausting.

We spent the weekend cleaning up the house, and the back yard/pool area getting ready for summer. Landon was thrilled and danced around everywhere. We decided to take a trip to Lowes for a new screendoor. Oh you know where I'm headed...

We pick one, strap it to the roof, and start driving home slooooowly. The next thing we know, this thing acts like a giant sail, and lifts off of the car. It flies in the air and lands in a pile behind us. I could not believe it. Thank God it didn't hit anyone!

Sunday at church preacher kind of brought things into focus. He said everythings a little "off". The economy is off, the government is off, the earth (because of the Chilean earthquake is now a minute or two off and some countries were moved 2 feet! I guess it's okay I'm a little off too.

At least I still have my sense of humor and so does Landon. When he saw his arm all swollen he told me there was a baby in there. LOL. He also danced around last night with his underwear on his head singing the theme song to Wow Wow Wubsy.

See? When one door closes another one opens and the person answering may have underwear on their head. At least that's how it is at our house.

I'm so glad that you seem to have gotten the arm under control. I hope it heals quickly and this is the only time for that.

I can't wait to get our backyard and pool open and ready. There is definitely a lot of backyard work to do!

We had a similar door issue once. How scary and thank goodness that no one was hurt.

LOL...guess that baby bump is a strong memory for Landon.....

Did the screen door survive?

We worked outdoors this weekend too. As a result I am a tired Nanny on this Monday morning...add Daylight Savings Time to the problem.....

Yikes! Glad no one got hit with the flying door!

Hope the arm continues to heal. You're right, it never ends

"There's a baby in there" - priceless! I'm going to chuckle about that all day!

We will be praying for Landon's arm. We can stress so much about those things. God bless you guys! Sounds like little Landon has a joyful heart. He is learing early not to let the tough things in life steal his Joy. Hang in there Mom & Dad ;-)

It's so funny you should say this. My children are 19 and 24. You would think that I would be able to let go a little bit. But no. This weekend they both managed to have me tearing my hair out. And they don't even live with me!
Worry, worry, worry.

Your post worried me in the beginning... but by the end, you seem to have everything together and in perspective (even with underwear on one's head). Good for you! ;)

LOL...a baby bump in his arm. I bet it felt good to get the yard cleaned up, we need to do that around here. I hope Landon is feeling better soon - keep us posted.

I'm so glad his arm is better!

I'm sorry to hear about Landon's arm. Know that was scary. Glad it's doing better.

It's too bad about your new screen door, too. But thankfully no one was hurt - it puts it all in perspective - what's important & what's not as important.

Where would we be w/out our sense of humor? :)

Have a good week!
