mackenzie & coleman

I thought I would share a few updated pictures of my niece and nephew. They are so cute!
Nothing new is happening in our home...Scott is recovering well. He has plans to be home next week and then go back to work 1/2 days the following week. We'll see how that goes! His nurse is still a little skeptical about that, but the $ runs out soon!! ;) So, that's our plan.
I will post pics of JP in his Halloween costume this weekend. He is going to be LARRY BOY. He is so excited. We are going to Scott's sister, Amy's, church with KiKi and Coleman.

In the past month Scott has had two surgeries. Because of the gaping hole in his backside, he is on some very high-powered pain medicines. However, it is NOT the pills he has developed an addiction to... Because we have pretty much been confined to our home, we have become addicted to NCIS. You know it's an unhealthy thing when it's all you think about during the day and you actually think that you are a part of the show!

We have way too much time on our hands....

apple farm

While Scott has been recovering, I have several friends who have taken JP for me and kept him busy. One Sunday, Angela and her sister, Tara, took him to Niven's Apple Farm. They had a great time.

This picture pretty much sums up what I feel like right now. Due to the graphic nature, I am not able to post how Scott is feeling!!! LOL!

He is going in for more surgery in the morning. Please say a little prayer. I will not go in to any more details. It's just the same 'ole s***! No pun intended!! Hopefully we will not be in the hospital overnight, it will depend on if there is too much infection and if he will need forty eight hours of IV antibiotics. I will try to keep you updated. Thanks for your prayers and concern.

Scott has had a rough few days. We ended up having to call the home health weekend nurse that was on call today to come out to check on him. His wound (in the lower behind area) has been bleeding/draining so much they are now "packing" it hoping that it will heal quicker. His surgeon still does not want to see him for three more weeks! I won't even go there!!! However, I will say that Scott's sick leave ENDS two days after he goes back to the doctor. The only way to fix the problem he's having is to go back in and cut more "stuff" out and re-sew him back up. My question to the surgeon is: While Scott is out of work AFTER HIS LEAVE has ended, whose salary is going to compensate for what we're going to miss????????????!!!!!!!!!! Mr. Doctor Man doesn't think about us normal people who don't have a years salary saved up for times like this!

Okay, enough of that. Can you tell we're frustrated?! I know I am not posting a lot of pictures and stuff lately. The truth is, I am just trying to keep my head above the water. I do want to AGAIN thank everyone for your prayers and everything that's come along with them. I ask now that you pray hard that Scott's wound heals up on it's own over the next few weeks. We literally CANNOT afford for it not to! Also, pray for Scott's mental health. The nurse that came out today told him that he really needs to lay down most of the time. He needs to do VERY little walking/sitting. So, he's pretty much home bound. It's really hard for him. (You can pray for me too if you don't mind. You don't realize how much your spouse helps out until you don't have the extra hands any more!)

few more pics of the sweet couple...

Holly posted some wedding pics on her Face Book page. I stole them and am posting them without her permission. I will ask for forgiveness later! You can see why I wanted them so badly. They returned from their honeymoon on Monday and I understand that they had a great time!

I love Holly because she makes my BJay so happy! I love that!

Bride, Groom, maid of honor and best man

Hey guys! I am still alive! We cancelled our Internet connection today because it has been giving us a lot of problems. I have been using my parent's computer, so I haven't been able to update as often. They live so far away.... lol! We are looking in to another service, so be patient with me.

We are still hangin' in there. Scott is fighting another infection. Other than that, he is doing well. Again, I thank those who have called, emailed, sent cards and brought meals over. God is so good! You guys really are the hands and feet of Jesus! It's been amazing...

JP spent the day with Angela and Luke Sunday. As soon as she gets the pictures to me, I will post them. Hope everyone is doing well!

I am actually still in my pajamas and it is 6:00pm! It's been wonderful! I have literally done NOTHING today. It's been so nice. JP took a long nap and so did I. Scott is still doing okay. I can't remember what I posted last, but the doctors/nurses are keeping an eye on his incision in his bottom. It does not seem to be healing.

I am so thankful for friends and family. So many of you have sent cards, gift cards for food, and brought meals over. We are so blessed!

Tomorrow I think that JP is going to spend some time over at his friend, Luke's, house. Scott and are will have a little time to ourselves. Hopefully I will have some pictures to post from their day.

I hope everyone is doing well! Thanks again for your prayers/thoughts and encouragement!

On the beach in Charleston before the wedding Saturday night.

Mary Elizabeth and JP

This was Peyton's first time at the beach. He loved the water!

If we couldn't' find JP for a picture, we knew he was throwing money into the water. (And soaking the sleeves of his jacket!)

Ladies man!

BJay giving the "star" of the wedding some water before the big moment! lol
