I made it through surgery yesterday. The doctor was surprised to find that my rotator cuff was fine, but the biceps tendon was completely torn. He repaired it with 3 stitches and cleaned up the whole area. He thinks this surgery will give me lots of relief, but saw that some of my bone had been worn away because of the torn tendon. This will probably give me problems later, and might mean more surgery. We'll worry about that later. It took me a long time to wake up enough to go home and I'm still pretty groggy. The nurse says this is normal. I am allowed to move my shoulder as much as possible, but I can not do any twisting motion with my hand. No opening jars or turning faucets. I also can't lift anything. I will wear the sling when I want, and I have a pain pump in that releases numbing medicine every hour into the shoulder. I will have a check up next Tues. and then we'll be on our way to my mom's. Thanks to everybody for praying.

Every day I am exploring
Touching everything I've found
I leave behind my little marks
And handprints all around

You clean up those hand prints
But someday when I'm grown
You'll wish you had just one hand print
To keep just for your own

I made this handprint for you
So that one day when I am tall
You'll remember what my hand looked like
Long ago when I was small

This is what is written on the gifts I got from Jonathan and Emily today. They made these pictures in Sunday School for me last week. They are a real treasure.

Barn Burner

There's nothing better to do on a snowy winter morning, than fold a bird or two.
Today was my last day of hunting for the season. I was rewarded for my efforts with 2 beautiful scaut.

The Little Marksman

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I haven't had much time to do fun things. Here's a little video of Jonathan doing something he does quite well.
