We got him home, elevated it, wrapped it up and put some ice on it. The wrap lasted about 10 minutes before it was killing him. He camped out on the couch for the rest of the weekend playing Black Ops while I was nurse, babying him and getting him anything he needed.
On Sunday, it was a lot more swollen and really sore. He couldn't take more than a couple steps on it. He was on a steady schedule of ibuprofen every 6 hours. I couldn't believe there wasn't any bruising.
Joshs' little brother, Austin and his girlfriend Alicia decided to come up and see us with their new baby boy, Raedyn. We felt really bad while they were here because we are so boring. We just sat here and watched TV and talked. Raedyn is so cute and loved loved loved Josh and Josh loved him.
(I can't wait to see Josh look at our child like this)I'm not going to lie, we've had a hard time being happy when other people have babies. It goes a lot deeper than that but my family reads this blog so I don't want to hurt any feelings. We've never not loved Raedyn, don't get me wrong, it's just been hard. I don't understand things sometimes but that's another post for another day.
We were so happy they took the time to come up and see us. Austin is such a good little brother. The only thing that kid wants to do is serve and make others happy. He was so attentive and in love with his baby boy. I didn't get a picture of the three of them together, next time.
So today at work, everyone was asking about Josh's ankle. Since Tara and I work at the hospital and the nurse in the ER does clinicals with Welter on Mon and Tues, that's all we talked about. Welter was concerned for Josh all weekend, wondering if he needed anything for the pain. I work for the best docs! Josh said it was doing better today when I talked to him on the phone. He had school tonight and thought he would be okay without any crutches. When I got home from work I wrapped it up so he could walk on it at school.
Now the bruising is setting in and it's bruising in totally different places than we thought it would. It's not quite as swollen but is still sore. He thinks he'll be back playing racquetball this weekend, yeah we'll see. He was able to get around okay at school tonight so that's an improvement.
Josh said now that he's 35, it's all down hill from here...He over-reacts just a little.
