Bye Peepaw, love ya!

The unusual thing that happened to us was that Tristan received his first yellow card. A yellow card is a warning for a foul or an attitude. His was for a foul and probably was warranted. He went over the back of another little boy but no one was hurt. Anyway, I was a bit shocked because Tristan cried when he got the card. It's not like he got a red or something. A red means that you are out of the game and that you have to miss the next game also. A yellow is just a warning but if you get 5 during the season you have to sit out a game.
Here he is walking off the field after the game. You would have thought he lost the game or something! Come to find out he thought we were going to be upset about the card.

Aidan and I while he's enjoying the laughing gas. It didn't seem to do too much, he never got the tingling in his fingers or toes like they said he would. The nurse told us that sometimes at this elevation it's not really effective. Our nurse, Stacey, got his IV in one try and he never even cried. Once he went to sleep, Josh and I left the room and was able to return once the surgery was completed.
Our doctor was a super nice guy and spent a long time with us. There were a few complications, he had a hard time finding the extra tooth. He went in through the roof of the mouth and then tried going through the front of his gums above his two front teeth. He still couldn't see it so went back through the roof but had to cut his nerve in the top of his mouth. We were really sad to hear that because it's very possible that he could have permanent nerve damage there now; but with his age I'm praying that it might grow back together and he won't have to deal with the tingling forever.
Needless to say, he's extremely swollen right now because of all the incisions. His lips are really bothering him , it's like he's busted them both. Plus he has three sutures in the top of his mouth and he can feel them. But overall, I have to say he's dealing with this surgery so much better than I had expected and better than his Dad did a couple of months ago. (the wisdom teeth extractions)Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. I'll keep you updated as I can. The strength of children amazes me! I've never had surgery myself so I can't imagine what it's like but I have immense respect for Aidan. Can you tell he's still trying to show that beautiful smile of his?

Recording it doesn't work that well either because the results get thrown at me from the news and the paper. Anyway, guess I'll keep trying to see what I can.

It's rained for two days straight here and so our soccer tournament that was scheduled for yesterday was cancelled. In hindsight that was a blessing because I might have been in the looney bin after it. We did have tickets for the Rapids game last night and even though it was nasty out I had spent a lot of money on the tickets so we had to suck it up. I'm so happy that we went because we had a blast with our friends. There were 16 of us there and it was so much fun! Our seats were under the overhang of the stadium so we didn't even get wet, just a little chilly.
I'm writing this from work, yep on a Sunday, because the boys are out of school for the next two days due to assessments. It's going to be interesting with all that's going on but what can we do? One day at a time, that's my motto.

The movers come for my office on Thursday so I may be MIA for a little bit. I'll post something when I get a break and I'm not stuck at a park for soccer practice.

This morning they also won 3-1 but no goals for Aidan. We are taking a break right now, the final game is at 5 p.m.
Our hotel is super nice, it's like a miniature apartment. The only bad thing is that someone or something set off the fire alarm yesterday and we all had to evacuate as the firemen searched the building. It was given the all clear after 20 minutes so it wasn't that bad but the alarm was deafening.
Anyway, I will update this post tonight once we make it home. Go United!!!
******What a tough game! We played the Lazers and they hadn't let a team score a goal on them the entire tournament. Until they met us! At the end of the game it was tied 1-1 and we went to overtime. Unfortunately they scored two goals and we weren't able to keep up. We got 2nd place but couldn't have been more proud of our team! Saturday we get to see the Lazers again and the boys are looking forward to the REMATCH!!!!*********

We've got an extremely busy weekend ahead of us. Aidan is playing in a tournament in Denver so we will be gone. Still have packing to do for that around his practice tonight, Tristan's practice tomorrow evening, and a dinner with the girls that I don't want to miss tomorrow night also!
One day at a time, that's always been my motto!

To start off our new year we went to breakfast at I.H.O.P. That was fun, I've never been there at 6:45 am before, ha! Aidan was very happy and excited about school and Tristan was reserved and nervous. I know this because he was up at 5:15 trying to tell me about a dream he had. He just used that to cover his nervous tears but I'll never tell him I know the real reason he was upset. Hopefully I'll get to hear all about his wonderful day when he gets home.
This is also a new beginning for me as a mom. I'm only going to work during the hours that the boys are in school. I've never been there for them in the mornings because I've always worked the 7 am shift. I'm so excited!!!! I have the same amount of work to do within a shorter amount of time and I'm praying that I'm able to keep up with things. But I'm so happy that my boss okayed this change and for now I'm going to enjoy every minute of it!
Also, something that makes me secretly happy inside: I no longer will have to come home and straighten the house for 30 minutes or however long it takes. It will look exactly the same as I left it in the morning!

Surgery is scheduled for Friday, August 22nd. They are going to do the IV and hopefully go through the roof of his mouth to get to it. If that doesn't work they will have to go through the front of the gum but I really don't want that. He will be sutured up and done in 45 minutes or so.
The good news is that the doctor was extremely nice, the staff was great, and the office seemed extremely organized. As I sat there scheduling the appt I had to think about all of the soccer obligations we had and plan around those; how crazy is that?
Oh, and on a side note: Cat sent me the picture that I'm using as my header now. I find it completely appropriate seeing as I myself sometimes don't know which way I'm going!
I couldn't believe it when she called me from Phoenix and told me that she was surrounded by me. I guess there's a Shea Court, Shea Plaza, Shea Drive and as you can see Shea Blvd. And it's spelled correctly! She took a great picture and I love it! Thanks so much Cat! I love ya - and you thought you were getting away from me huh?
