The Doctors I will go.....5 times!!!

What an eventful last week! I think we had a family goal to see how many times we could visit the doctor last week. Me, Vandi, Zoey, and Izaak decided we all wanted a turn. Some of us wanted to make it twice.

At the beginning of the week Vandi and I went to the doctors. Lucky for me, mine was only a check up. I wish my children had been so fortunate.

Vandi had been running a fever for a couple of days. I thought it might be an ear infection. Luckily it was only a cold.

Zoey went in for thrush on a different day. Thrush is miserable. I didn't realize it at the time that little Vandi had it too. Therefore, I got thrush as well. I didn't want to go back to the doctor again for me and I was just at Vandi's doctor for Zoey. We decided one doctors appointment a week per person was plenty. So, I called the doctor for me and Vandi instead. Needless to say the girls in this family have been a bit irritable.

The icing on the cake was Thursday night when Izaak was sitting on the back of the couch, crawling across it, and enjoying a piece of bread and butter. Izaak was singing his little heart out about how much he loved bread and butter, when he slipped and fell breaking his right arm. I was out enjoying a nice, quiet, late night walk around the neighborhood when Blake drove up with the news. We rushed into the emergency room at around 9:00 pm. and didn't leave until 2:00 am.

I was so grateful for the doctor there that night. Izaak had a good break and one orthopedic surgeon said to just rap it. The doctor didn't like that call and called another surgeon to come adjust the bones. Izaak's arm would have healed crooked otherwise.

We saw a lot of blessings that night. Grandpa Robert happened to be visiting so he was able to stay and watch our girls. Thank you Grandpa Robert! Izaak had a great doctor that did the best she could for him. And just to show Heavenly Father was taking care of the situation and watching out for our little Izaak, there was a show about volcanoes on t.v. just for him. Izaak is fascinated with volcanoes right now. I love Heavenly Father.

Izaak had another appointment today and got his blue cast put on. He looks so cute! It hasn't slowed him down a bit. In fact, I think it's made him even more determined to do it "by himself".

A mist of all of this chaos. Blake and I were asked to speak in church. I learned a couple of important things. The spirit is always there to help and two not to complain if life seems to be same old same old.
