Nearing the End of the Forced Bathroom Demo
Well, it is nearly 10pm, and Matt is completely wiped and still pressing on! He is still planning on completing the surround this evening. I know he feels he doesn't have a choice and I so incredibly appreciate it, but I sure wish he could just rest. The poor guy sprained his ankle last week playing football with the sr high guys at church. If he hadn't of gotten it x rayed and looked at by a doctor, we both would have been pretty worried just by the looks of it. It was completely swollen and purple from the tips of his toes to a quarter of the way up his calf. He was supposed to stay off of it and use crutches, but you know how it is. Finally by Sunday last week, his birthday, he laid on the coach all afternoon with it up. What a surprise, the swelling and lovely shade of purple began to go away! So, this day has certainly taken it's toll and his ankle is pretty bad, an unfortunate casualty of this war with the bathroom.
Both of us are thankful though that this hurdle is almost finished! And I am quite happy that our guests for Easter will have a nice shower. Tomorrow will be a race to see who gets the first shower and how long the hot water will hold out! I think dad deserves first dibs! I will restle off the wee ones for him.
So, all of you at the Mission's trip meeting tomorrow, do me a favor and tell him to prop up his foot!
