Oberto, How You Doin'?

I've had a few email inquiries about how Scott's leg is doing? So, rather than email people back (because I SUCK at return emails this week) I thought I would just share with everyone.

Scott's leg in a nut shell is still shitty but in a good, kind of way. Oberto is still alive and kickin. We're seeing more of it in spots and less of it in others.
We've got the tendons exposed on the top of the foot and most recently we've got tendon exposed on the left (outer) side of the foot.
The left side guys are new this week so they are giving Scott a little more twitching and aching, which is typical when a new tendon surfaces.
Isn't it sad that we've had enough new tendons surface that we know how his leg is going to react? We know that for the first 5 days after the tendon first makes it's entrance Scott's leg is going to act like a spaz. But then it gets used to breathing the fresh air, so to speak, and it settles back down.
There are parts of the leg that are healing. It's really slow but it's happening.

Scott's health in general is doing as well as expected. As I said last week we've decided to no longer spend time on getting Scott walking. We're all about getting him more self reliant in his wheelchair. It's a slow process but we're working on it.

As in every family we have our great days. We communicate, we connect and we thrive. And then there are the bad days. We can't find the words we need, we bitch, we forget to remember how the other person must feel. The good thing is that most of the days are good days. Isn't that what every human on earth is looking for? More good than bad.
Tonight, in our house the scale was tipped a little in the wrong direction. I'm not happy to say that but I am happy to say that everyone parted ways for the night knowing that we have an intense love for each other.
Tomorrow is another day and it's going to be a great day.

I just love your honesty Brandi. I'm hoping you're having a great day today.

Keep on working it Scott and tell Oberto I said hi. I'll drop in with something delicious soon.

Hi guys. "more reliant in his wheelchair" Well, we all know what that means. . .Front of the lines at all the amusement parks! Keep up the good work. It's awesome to see you guys enjoying home life (prom,K,daily life, etc)
