fun photos... and a p.s.

And for the p.s. - Could you be in prayer for my left knee? Several years ago, right before my wedding actually, the slight tendinitis in my knee from my days of playing tennis in high school and other activities, turned into chronic (and very painful!) tendinitis/bursitis. It got to the point that I couldn't put any pressure on my left leg at all, and the pain impacted my daily life VERY much. I had intense physical therapy and a removable leg cast (from my ankle to my thigh) for several weeks - right before my wedding! And our honeymoon was to be in Disney World - lots of walking! Needless to say, I was nervous. But we were able to get the pain under control and it has only bothered me occasionally.... until now. The severe pain is back. And it has been very tricky today (and it hurts!) to walk up and down our stairs, get on the floor with Ethan, etc. I put a support brace back on my knee that I had to use off and on a few years ago... but you can imagine how difficult it is to not be able to walk or move comfortably AND take care of an 8 1/2 month old baby. Have I mentioned that it's quite painful? The intense pain has stopped me in my tracks - literally - several times today. So, if you could be in prayer for the flare up to go away, I'd be extremely thankful!

Sorry to hear about your knee! I will keep you in my prayers. Ethan is in my prayers too. My mom was diagnosed in November with a very aggressive (non-curable) blood cancer. We use a site online through caringbridge to keep everyone up to date.
I have had fantastic results for an injury to my spine and my migraines through acupuncture. Please look into that!!! Good luck!! My prayers are with you and your family!

Ok, he is such a doll, love the pictures!
I will definitely be in prayer for
your knee! Have you tried acupuncture? I had chronic pain in my shoulder/ neck and back due to a swimming injury and a car accident... I suffered for years and three treatments of acupuncture did more for me than several years of other treatments. It's pretty inexpensive, it doesn't hurt (it actually feels great!), and everybody I know that has had it has seen great results and even avoided surgery! Can you tell that I'm a big fan of it!?!?
Thanks for the cutie pictures!
