Surgery is definitely needed for John's shoulder. It's scheduled for next Wednesday (the 4th), but we don't know what time yet. It was around this time last year that he was having his wrists operated on. I think next year, I'm going to put him in a bubble. A bubble wouldn't have helped with his wrists, though. :)
He said that the surgeon told him that he should be able to return to work in about a week and a half. Working with a sling shouldn't be too hard for him. Or at least I hope not.
What will be a challenge will be learning to use his left hand to do all the things he is used to doing with his right one. For the next few days, I should try brushing my teeth, washing my hair, or shaving my legs left handed just so I can have an idea what he'll be going through for six weeks. Oh goodness! I just thought about trying to do my hair with only my left hand. Heck, doing my hair with only my right hand would be next to impossible. No, I'm sure it would be impossible. If I were incapacitated, a visit to Lynn for a SUPER short 'do would be in order!
In other, EXCITING news...
Jess and Lance have bought a house! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!! They haven't closed yet, and the bank wanted to do it on July 1, but they are going to try to get it earlier. Jessi is just afraid July 1 is cutting it a tad too close to Mr. Layton's arrival. It would be their luck that right in the middle of the signing, her water would break. LOL
John and I haven't seen the house in person yet, but from what we've seen on the website, it looks great. It's a nice size, it looks like it has been kept up well, and it has a very nice fenced backyard. To me, that is probably one of the nicest features because they have 3 dogs AND because it will give Layton a nice place to play. Distance wise, I don't think it will be any farther away than what they are now, but it will probably be a little more convenient to swing by since we are usually in Opelika a few times a month. Hopefully, they'll get the closing done and moved in something mid- to late June.
Tonight is bunco, and honestly, I wish I had a sub. I am tired (my left eye has been twitching like crazy), and I have a headache. I just want to go home and sleep. Maybe I can nap for a while before I have to leave to meet the others.
That's it for me today. Have a GREAT day!
I guess that's about it for now.
