Lindsey needs an MRI on her knee

In case you were curious how Lindsey's doctor appointment went, she had x-rays taken yesterday and the tissue around her knee was torn from the kneecap dislocation, and will likely have surgery. So the doctor will take at look at the results after the MRI to determine the damage and see if the cartilage or ligament or something--I can't remember exactly what--is torn too. More bad news is that she'll probably have surgery on both knees because both kneecaps have had tendencies to be loose. My poor baby! She's using crutches and a knee brace now to get around.

Oh, poor Lindsey!!
That sounded horrible and so painful. And now surgery! That is awful. I hope she can have it soon and that she will heal really fast. Knee troubles are so difficult to completely resolve, it seems.
bless lindsey's heart. i hope she's feeling as good as can be expected. i'm glad you are finding out the problem and hopefully get it solved quickly. my dad has his latest knee surgery here in texas. let me know if you want me to get the name of his dr - my dad loved this guy.
I'm so sorry that you did not receive better news at the Doctor. I hope that they will be able to repair the damage and that she will have a speedy recovery.

Lindsey, get well soon! I hope your knees can stop being so temperamental. I love my cutie pie niece.

What a bummer - poor both of you!
I'm proud of you for your brave "mommy" action.

Oh no! Surgery does not sound fun but the end result should be worth it. Hopefully she won't be out of commission for too long or during the summer. :(

Oh dear, that's horrible! Best wishes to her and let us know when that will be. She'll be in my prayers. Give her a hug for me.

Oh dear that is a bummer. I do hope that it goes well. Look at it this way at least she is getting it treated early on before something really yucky happens. Good luck.

That sounds a little tragic! But Lindsay will do great I'm sure. Be sure to give her lots of pampering ;) She'll be so happy to have a new knee once it's all over with!

Make sure you get her some great earplugs for the MRI! They'll give her some there too, but if you could find some extra sound-proof ones to take with her that would help. Those dang MRI machines are noisey! Think jackhammer!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
