Thursday stuff and old pics of Kieffer... Warning LOL

Thursday happenings...
We came home yesterday because we had to sign the property tax checks and get them in the mail... Ewww I hate being a grown up yanno? We had to go to the office and sign checks too... afterwards we came here to the house and Sam flipped out on the boys... His garage was a disaster... My hubby is anal about his garage workshop... It was pretty bad too... It was obvious the boys have been working on their bikes, motorcycles and stuff and putting nothing back where it goes... He was not a happy camper... I told him to make them clean it up... but as
usual both boys were not at home at the same time... So Kieffer got the worst of it because he was here... Kameron got it too but by then the storm had lost its ummmph... if you know what I mean!

Anyway... I don't think they will let Dad find such a mess again!

The aggressive dog trainer is coming on Saturday morning to tell me what I am doing wrong... but so far the dogs have been behaving... We took Gigi's stitches out of her ear the other night while Kieffer was at the house... Sam said "Hhhhmmm I wonder why her ear still has some ooze coming out of it, its been a long time"
[It was only where the stitch was... trust me it was nothing... remember I am an M.D.... LOL]
Kieffer started laughing... "Its been 2 weeks Dad, that is Nothing, I had ooze coming out of my arm for 4 years!"
We had to laugh at that too!
For those of you new readers who don't understand what we are talking about... Kieffer broke his arm [where the upper arm connects to the shoulder] it snapped completely and almost came out the back of his arm...
They reconnected it with pins but for 4 years a small area oozed... we did everything... nuclear medicine to find the infection... 6 weeks IV antibiotics [which I gave him through a port in his arm everyday for 2 hours] he did 40 sessions in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber too... it just went on and on... they said he had a bone infection... they said he might just have to learn to live with it...
Anyway a year ago, they opened his arm back up and found out he had bone fragments in a pocket of tissue that just kept it festered and angry... they took the bone fragments out and he has been fine ever since...

I hope I didn't gross you out... If I did I am sorry...

If I have to go through it... you have to go through it with me... that is what friends are for right? RIGHT!

Anyway, I gotta go get in the shower... then pack up the Christmas decorations to take to the Hi D house... all the kids are coming up Saturday night for dinner... whoo hoo...

Christmas will be at the Hi D house this year for the first time...

So have you guys just given up this house to the boys. Of course if I had that new kitchen waiting for me at HiD I'd be there too. Glad everyone is coming to eat. It's always nice for everyone to be together.
I'm just glad after 4yrs they finally figured out what was wrong and he's good to go now.
Hugs, Chrissie

WOW that surgical scar was long! I'm glad his arm finally healed. Sheesh!
OUCH on the leg. You've shown me this before. Poor kid. But, hey, he had FUN doing it right? Loved his signs! LOL
Love, Pam

It takes a lot to gross me out!

I once had to clean and pack a big hole in my mom's stomach for months after a staff infection! If I can do that, nothing can bother me! LOL

my son used to play hockey = broken hand, and split lip and chipped teeth. my stepson bike raced = split chin, head, etc. also has a temper = many broke knuckles. I also have 5 other sons plus a daughter so I know the er well...!!!

lisa jo said...

wow, that looks like one hell of an injury!!!! I hate it that he went thru all of that!

E-Lo said...

He's a tough kid for sure ! LOL
I cant believe all that he went through to figure out what was causing the infection.
Have a great weekend with the kids at dinner.
