Update On Dentist Husband and boys

Several people have called me and asked how Dentist husband and boys are doing.

Dentist husband was able to go back to work on Tuesday. (His dad, fellow dentist, covered for him on Monday.) He still looks awful but his eye symptoms are diminishing and the pain is getting better. Again, his hands were not damaged, so he has been able to work--thankfully.

The boys, who were virtually unscathed are back to their normal routines, with the exception of me keeping toothsome #1 home from soccer for the week. That is my precaution but he still has a nasty bruise on this side which still hurts, so I made that executive decision.

We were able to get from the car, the seat belts, the side curtain air bag and a few other miscellaneous pieces, which we had the kids show us for Family Home Evening on Monday.

So, with the exception of not having our replacement glasses and no new car, we are back to normal. Normal meaning the regular run of the mill chaos.

Oh and in reference to my house cleaning, I am about 1/2 way there, so things should be in good (not great) condition, when my parents arrive tomorrow.

I still can't believe they walked away...I mean, I can. But looking at that picture of the car makes me want to cry.

If I were a good R.S. pres. I'd come help you clean....AAAAHHHH! Seriously, if you need help you can send over the kids...

I have a feeling that your parents are going to be much more interested in hugging you all than looking for dust bunnies!So glad they are feeling okay!

So scary to hear about Chris' accident. I am so very glad that he and the boys are ok. What a sweetheart Diane is!

Enjoy your parents visit. So they are so fun to be around.

so, so, glad.

Thank you for the update, Janice.

and for what it's worth, I've never been to your house when it wasn't clean. So you've got a good record go date.

this is so amazing, and i'm so glad they are okay. i can't imagine how sick you must have felt getting that call.

Wow, Janice, I am so glad that they are alright. I haven't checked your blog in a couple of weeks so I had no idea. It sounds like they were being watched over because that could have been so bad. It brings back awful memories of my car accident and I am just overwhelmed by gratitude that they are okay. I agree that your parents aren't going to care at all the condition of the house, they're just going to want to hug all of you.
