I was clearing the photos from my camera and I came across these. At some point in the week, Abby played photographer! She has a pretty good eye. :)
This last picture of Luke says a lot. This is how he has been spending his days...camped out on the couch or in his bed with his leg elevated. He has been listening to a lot of audio books and has been trying to stay caught up with his homework (he missed this entire week of school).
Yesterday, Brad took him back to the hospital per Dr's orders, and after removing his cast they determined that he needed another one. His leg continues to be quite swollen and painful. They also did another x-ray, and it was the same as the last time. I do not understand how the x-ray is inconclusive, but yesterday's Dr. seemed to think that something is in fact broken. Luke will return to the hospital next week for another evaluation.
So, even though we were hopeful that Luke would be on the mend enough to go on our church retreat this weekend, it seems that it will not be possible for him to manage the trip. Thankfully, some of our dear friends, the Mason's, have offered to keep him and his bum leg for the weekend :) He is actually looking forward to hanging out with his buddy, Andrew and he continues to be in good spirits!
Thanks for your prayers. Keep them coming... for Luke's leg and our church retreat this weekend.
