While getting his MRI Charlie had the crew (2 rn's, 1 rt, 1tech and 1 doc) stop by the Home Depot and pick him up a plank of wood because he's fix'en to make a paddle. My little boy is sick and tired of this creek he's up and he's fighting like hell. MRI results were no different than yesterday. Thank the Man above. Nothing on the scan to suggest that there are any pockets of missed infection and his fever is down... almost normal. Another thought I just had is that he might be making his paddle because he felt like he needed to contribute to the monumental carpentry effort that is going on at our house and build something himself. [Authors note: Rob is not a humble man by nature. Some would say arrogant and few things in this world shake him to the point of humility. It takes things like a Yergeson Field goal to beat the Coogs, Alex Smith being born, Urban never loosing or everybody he knows putting their lives on hold to come to the aid of a pompas undeserving ignoramus and finish building his house.] I've told him to give up carpentry now, go to school, get a real job so that you don't have to work for a living. Nevertheless, the Extreme Home Makeover that is going on right now has me floored. I can't believe how generous and selfless all of you are to help us out. I was crapping bullets when Charlie first got sick worrying about how I was going to be ready for cabinets that are coming on the 11th. You folks have saved me and Angel and I will never be able to thank you enough. Once we move in the work you have done for us will be a daily reminder of how great all of Charlie's friends and family are. In the style of the eminent Thomas S. Monson. A prideful man has been humbled and hearts were touched, spirits were felt and tears were shed.
From what I understand I wasn't the only one that learned a lesson in humilty tonight. Rodney, I hear we had a little woops tonight. Thats why the handrail is alder, it's cheap, I chose it because I thought it was going to be me and I am a giant woops waiting to happen. Secondly, "NEWSFLASH", tonight Landon Clark came in to visit Charlie and bring us dinner (thanks pooky) and he was wearing a BYU COUGARS t-shirt. The Lord smiled. Anything to help and honestly Landon I needed that. It gave me something to smile about. Photographic evidence will follow.
Everyone, you are unbelievable and as for now your prayers are working. I am typing this right by Charlie's side and he is nice and calm, sleeping. Lets keep hoping, praying and believing.
