Poor Coley!

Wow after this post I will be pretty much caught up on my posting for a few days. Nothing like doing about 2 months worth on one night.
Last but not least of our bad luck lately.... Cole was drawn for a mule deer tag this year which started on halloween day. He was looking so forward to this, not being able to hunt due to being gone on his mission, really made him excited to get out and do it again this year. Well while he was working on Thursday, he was spraying (for bugs) in a back yard and was up on a brick wall, when he stepped down to get off, he stepped in a pot hole and twisted his ankle really bad. I have seen many of sprained ankles in my time, (most of them my own) and this one is by far the very worst I have seen. In fact when I saw it, I worried it might be broken. He insisted that it wasn't, but was really bummed, and wondering how he was going to hunt. They do a lot of hiking up and down mountains, and he didn't know if he could do that. But of course this didn't stop them from going out. He was going to go no matter what. So we just pumped him full of ibuprophen and iced it each night. So far he has done okay, just in a lot of pain at night when he gets home.

Man I hope our run of bad luck runs out very soon!!

Ok so while I was reading all of your posts today, I had to scroll up to make sure that it didn't say Atkinson or Nikolaus anywhere LOL. No seriously, I am so sorry for all you guys are going through and the insurance thing....it is pathetic what they don't cover. I hope it all gets better. If only Troy and Britto lived near you...they would get those dumb trucks running. Love you guys.

Hi Natalie, thanks for the comment about my boys, but you forgot I still have 1 more little missionary boy coming up! Crew is 9, so at least I will have a little break after Landry. Landry is leaving exactly 1 year from when Cory got home. It feels like it was yesterday...I'm not quite ready to do it again, but then I really wouldn't have it any other way. Landry is ready to go! How is Scott? How are your mom and dad?

It will turn around. Keep your faith up. Love you guys tons!

Oh that looks SO PAINFUL. I think that's the worst I've ever seen too. I'm glad to hear it didn't interfere with hunting. =)
