Merry Christmas (will wonders never cease)

The last couple of days around here have been a crazy whirlwind!

On the evening of the 23rd, DS12 dislocated his knee, which is terribly painful. We spent a few hours in the emergency room with him. It's not easy to move a 206 lb, 5'7" 12 year old who doesn't want to be moved. Whew!

Plus, in true aspie fashion, my little darling is screaming bloody murder, threatening those of us who are trying to help, etc.

So, for Christmas Eve, my guy is forced to lay with a brace that holds his knee immobile. He isn't coordinated enough to use crutches and he can barely use a walker. He has sat and cried and cried. It's been really tough.

But, for the most part, they are happy campers this morning and playing together. The new gifts are a welcome respite from the boredom that ensued yesterday.

Merry Christmas to all!
