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.

Hope you get well soon, Lindsey.

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…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
