Ankle Update - Happy Birthday Mom

Turns out, the ankle isn't broken. Yippee! That still doesn't mean he didn't do a whole lot of damage though. He tore a bunch of ligaments, which will still take some time to heal.

No cast though, that is the best news of all. He has to wear his Air Cast/boot thingy for 4 weeks, and then a brace with Physical Therapy for a couple more. Hopefully by Thanksgiving he will be in mostly working condition. I think he still is determined to ski one last time this year....

So, it is my mom's birthday today. She would have been 62 today. This day still means so much to me. I was so lucky to have a birthday close to my mom, so we always got to celebrate them together. I miss celebrating with her. I think that is one of the hardest parts about her being gone, I don't get birthday wishes from the woman who gave birth, raised and taught me all that I know. Does that sound so selfish? I miss that so much. However, I know she is still with me celebrating my birthday every year, and especially this year, she is playing with her newest granddaughter. Teaching her all good habits, I'm sure. :)
