Well it has been a crazy couple of weeks here in the Hess household. My husband has helped me realize that I am not a youngster anymore. Some of my friends in Cedar asked me to play in a volleyball tournament at the Cornfest in Enterprise. Of course I was more than excited since I have not been able to play volleyball FOREVER.... well that excitement was very short lived. The very first play of our very first game I go to spike the ball and the next thing I remember is I am on the floor in the worst pain ever. My knee was killing me and not to toot my own horn but I tolerate pain pretty darn well and I could not believe this pain. So to make a long story short I got the news I did not want to hear from the ortho. I tore my ACL!!! On top of that I had a really bad bone contusion which made it so painful to walk. So yes I have been on cruches for a week and half trying to take care of a 5 1/2 month old wiggle worm. Thank goodness Ryan was able to take a few days off and his wonderful mom came and spent several days with me not only taking care of Braxton but cleaning, cooking, and doing laundry. His sister also was a huge help in keeping the girls entertained. I don't know what we would have done without them. So now I am preparing myself for surgery. Attempting to get all the swelling and fluid off my knee so that they can operate. CRAZY!!! Wish me luck!
