I swear I am gonna wrap him in bubble wrap

Hey Ya'all,
I'm home from Texas... As you have heard Kieffer broke his leg...
what you don't know is he needs surgery this week on it... UGH!!! 
We flew him home from Dallas yesterday... Direct flight into Palm Springs and they took really good care of him, put him into First Class and made him a bed... Pam took him to his orthopedic today and he took x-rays and the Dr. said he would call us in the morning about surgery... Its his right leg
[not the left one with a rod from his football injury]
The x-ray looks like a clean break across the big bone in his lower leg, however it is indented... looks like someone karate chopped his bone and its indented backwards [hence the surgery] but its a clean break... I am so bummed for him... he was doing SO great at the Nationals... He got a holeshot, made his mains, and was on his way to maybe bringing home a championship... he still brought home two trophies...
 
Anyway he has a cast up to his thigh at the moment... We raced home, driving... We left there Saturday at 9pm, drove until 2am... slept at a hotel and then drove 12 hours on Easter, slept at a hotel... and drove another 13 hours home today... and here I am... I sure as HELL missed you guys... I have so many stories to tell and photos to share but for now I gotta get some sleep... its 11pm my time but really more like 1am because I am now use to central time...
 
Man, I missed everyone.... I missed talking to you...  I had to write everything long hand because I forgot my laptop...
I forgot A LOT of stuff!
Oh well, my bed looks so very nice right now
17 days later :)
Goodnight

Awwww... I'm so sorry about Kief I can't believe it's the other leg now. Poor kid must have everything broke by now. Hope surgery goes well and it heals soon.

So glad you guys are home safe and sound now. I bet YOUR bed does look good after 17 days. Traveling is fun, but coming home is awesome.

Get some rest and we'll be here ready to hear all about it when you get a chance.

Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

Glad your back and at least you are in one piece.  Too bad for Keiffer.  Have a good hump day tomorrow.
