Happy Anniversary

Well last year about this time we were all getting ready for our big day! Hard to believe a year has already flown by. We have had to learn and adjust to a lot in this last year, but we have done it. Our relationship has faced many difficult obstacles but they have made us stronger and closer. It is very true when they say that god only gives you what you can handle because I believe we have handled it well considering all that has happened. I hope we are on the down hill slide now. So here is to many more anniversaries together!

We will start with Kyle, he is busier than ever. He had to go get certified in welding this past week in Wichita Falls. He passed with flying colors, he got the highest certificate you can obtain as a welder which I think is pretty awesome! He is busy in school with projects and kids. He seems like he hasn't missed a beat.

Brooke is busy as ever, she has piano on mondays, soccer on tues and thurs, ccd on wednesdays and games on saturdays. Oh and she just signed up for basketball. I have a funny feeling this is only the begining. She has really enjoyed school so far and she doesn't complain much. She is definitely moms little helper.

Mckyla, she is as stubborn as ever, or as Kyle likes to call it strong willed. She is starting to like school a little more, she comes home and sings us a new song everyday. She enjoys fighting with Brooke and playing with Zoe.

As for me, I am trying to keep up with all of the kids events and work. I have learned that work comes second, I try not to miss any of my kids events and I definitely dont work as much as I used to. Its just not worth it to me. I work extra at my second job when we need extra money and when the house gets finished I am sure I will pick up a little more work, but for now I just take it day by day.

The house is coming along nicely, still set to be in by Thanksgiving which isn't far away. We are at the hard stage, picking out floor, paint, cabinets, ect. I am just not that into decorating. I keep it pretty simple.

Well until next time, goodbye from the Myers' house!

Well we have 3 weeks of school about down and we have been very busy. These are the most recent pics I have of the house and barn. They are both further along I just haven't downloaded the pics yet. The house has the roof complete and the barn is ready for tin! We are now picking out some of the inside items such as sinks and counter tops, all the fun stuff! The plumbers and electricians are working now, so we can get sheetrock started maybe in the next week or so.

Kyle is healing well after his gall bladder surgery on Friday, we hope that is the last surgery he has to have. He is very sore but getting along. He uses his abdomen for everything so having abdominal surgery even though it was laproscopic, really did him in. Thank you to the lady's who brought us supper over the weekend, we loved it and really appreciated it. Kyle felt better today so he decided to go back to work, I hope that goes well.

Brooke is enjoying school with Mrs. Mayo, she starts soccer this month as well as piano again. She is really growing up, she will be 7 this month and it is killing me how fast it is moving. She is such a big girl and a big help! As for Kyla her and Zoe are always together and always up to no good! They get themselves in the worst situations. Kyla is like her godpoppa and she hates school. This morning she cried and would not let go of me, I felt so bad. SHe usually does that with Kyle but not me! Kyle said its because she loves her daddy more! Whatever! I hope she out grows this, but Kevin never did so we may be in some trouble!

As for me I have been busy with home stuff, picking out things for the house, keeping the house running and trying to work when everyone gets well enough for me to! On top of all this I think it is time for me to go back to school and get it done, there is no time like the present! I will keep you informed on how it goes!

Test Results

Kyle's Renal ultraasound went well this am , they said it looked good. They did his sensory test again, no change in sensations. Same prognosis. They were impressed with some of his building skills. Dr. Maerz says everything looks good, he took him off of some of his medications which made kyle's day. He said his bowels and bladder look ok, he will see the urologist this week as well. Full day tomorrow, but hopefully we can leave here Friday morning and be back Saturday sometime.
The weather has been very cool today, in the 60's now. It has been cloudy and raining most of the day. We have caught up on some of the movies we wanted to see due to the rain. Hopefully it will be nice tomorrow so we can get out a little. The girls are enjoying getting away with murder since mamaw is in charge, I hope she is working on getting them to bed at a descent hour since school is next week. Well time to get back to my movie!

Back in Colorado

So we are writing from Colorado once again. Kyle has to come back once a year for a re-eval,where he will go through all these tests and make sure he is in good health and see if there are any changes in his condition. We left Sat about noon and got here today at about 230. Since we dont plan anything, we thought we would stop halfway and get a motel, only to find that every motel between Amarillo and New Mexico was completely booked. At midnight we finally found a place to stay, it was the only room available, it apparently was a honeymoon suite that they were not renting out because the jacuzzi in room was broke, we got a discount and to be honest we didnt really care as long as it had a bed!! Colorado looks so much better without all the snow. The mountains are beautiful and green and the temperature is even better. It got up to 82 degrees today and was 65 or so about noon, the weather is definetly a lot nicer this go round. In fact the whole trip seems nicer this time. We have had 10 months to think and grow since the last time we were here. We are here under different circumstances. We have made lots of changes through this, but we have made it through what many call the hardest part. You definetly have a different view of all the people here in their chairs for the first time and their braces, we know where you are coming from. You just want to tell them it will all work out, but ten months ago that was the last thing I wanted to hear.

The girls are home with mom, I didn't think they wanted to be in Dr's offices all week especially the week before school. Putze, Kyle said that he didn't plan when we were coming up here but he is glad he is not in in-service this week. He said if it weren't for you damn administrators he wouldnt have to go anyway!

Our house is moving fast! When we get home they should have the roof on and the concrete for Kyle's barn. Logsdon and his crew having been moving fast! They still are hoping we get in by Thanksgiving, so Calina I hope you have been doing some shopping, because it won't be long before you are picking out colors for the walls!

Well I guess I better get to bed, Kyle has some tests they are doing on his kidneys in the am so we need some rest!

Another Day

The Myers' home is always on the go so its hard to write when I want to. We finally really started the house, they put up the concrete forms this weekend, too bad they missed the measurements by ten feet! Now they have to come fix it tomorrow. Then hopefully the plumbers will come do their stuff on Wed so we can pour the slab. Our house is still on the market, had a couple of people look at it and lots of people driving by all the time. We hope to be in it before the holidays, but who knows.

Kyle and I are supposed to be going to dallas the middle of this week. Hopefully we will get his chair and cushion looked at since the measurements were off. Maybe then his back pain will go away. We are still set to head to denver middle of august, Kyle is bummed because he will miss all the inservices, since its a week before school starts!

The girls are enjoying summer here spending time with mamaw. Kyla is excited about being the flower girl in Kylie's wedding and Brooke is excited about next school year. Kyla says she never has to go back to school, she will just stay home forever. That is her godpapa Kevin coming out in her!

Right now there isn't a whole lot going on other than the usual. Things are good at the Myers' house, we hope it stays that way.

Summer Heat

Well the heat has officially let us know it is summer along with all the wheat harvesters. The temp has really risen this week. House building is finally underway and hopefully we will have a house before christmas! The girls have gone to stay with nana and apaw for a few days, they were ready. I am sure they are having a blast. I have been busy getting caught up on laundry and house work. It is too hot to be anywhere but inside. Kyle is in Burk today helping Keith put up a fence I hope he drinks lots of water. He is doing good working every minute he can. Zoe is bouncing around as well, back to her normal. I will post pictures of the house and its progress here and on facebook, maybe it will come up faster than we think. Other than that things are calm at the Myers' home for the moment.

End of the School Year

As you can see we have changed the look of the blog. Even though Kyle's body will still be recovering for the next year and a half I feel as if we have moved on. We have adjusted to the situation and so I felt that the blog needed to look a little more cheerful and bright.

Summer is finally here and we are all excited and ready. As you can tell the girls have already been swimming at the rhineland city pool aka as Aunt Nelle's house. Brooke would probably move there for the summer if I let her. She loves to swim. However this week starts Brooke's tennis camp. She has really enjoyed tennis. After tennis camp Brooke thinks she is moving in with Karley and Nana for the summer, little does she know. Her report card for the year was really good. I am so proud of her. Hard to believe she is a little first grader now. I feel like I missed way too much of this school year. She said she was really going to miss Mrs Kajs. The picture up here is of Brooke and her teacher at their end of year program.

As for Kyla well what can I say she is still onery as ever. She thinks her school is over and now she gets to go to Brooke's school and ride the bus to her daddy's office and get a snack too. She is in for a rude awakening, but I won't drop that bomb until next school year. She is such a busy bee, always getting into something. She loves to dance. Her favorite phrase unfortunately is "What the heck" and every now and then you might hear a cuss word. She repeats everything she hears and she wants to know when is it going to be her birthday because it has been along time since her last birthday. Her favorite movie is Alvin and the Chipmunks the squeakal and Mamaw is tired of it! Hold on Mrs Kajs I hope you are ready, I am giving you 2 years to prepare for this one because she is the exact opposite of Brooke. In fact she told us she had already kissed a little boy at school, when we asked her why she said because she wanted to because she liked him. Brooke told her she was gross and that daddy would be mad and Kyla said o-well! I can see Kyle and Kyla going rounds when she is older. She is a mess.

Kyle is adjusting so well. His spirits are like no other. He has worked so hard to get to where he is now and I am proud. He is now full time, he is welding again and still loving it. We haven't heard about his standing wheelchair or how much longer it will be before it gets here, but we are hoping it is soon. He did however get his ATV and it is really nice. He goes next week to get hand controls put in it, but for now Kevin rigged him up a piece of pipe that he uses. Kyle still seems to be having some back and hip pain, but apparently we found that it might be his wheelchair. We have had 3 different therapists say that his wheelchair was ordered in the wrong size and that it could be causing his pain. We go to lubbock June9 to try out new chairs. I hope it is that easy, because I really hate that he has pain. We start our house on Thursday finally. All the paperwork involved is a nightmare, believe me I have no intentions on ever doing this again. I know when its done I will be glad we did this, but for now it is just stressful.

As for me I am still running around with the girls staying busy. I added another job. I now work at wilbarger general as a float nurse, which means I work wherever they need someone. Busy, busy. I was hoping to take a week and go on vacation with Kyle but he isn't quite set on traveling to far yet so we will see. We are still set to go to Denver the week of Aug 15, so I guess that will be our family trip! We have had to make lots of changes but I think we have all adjusted as well as you can in these situations. It has brought us all closer and taught us the hard way about enjoying life each step at a time.

I almost forgot a family member, Zoe! She is just as ornery as Kyla. She is a good dog but she gets into everything and chews on everything, I guess that's just the pup in her. She is at the vet today getting spade, poor Zoe, but lord knows we don't need anymore dogs! She is huge and getting bigger she goes to work with Kyle everyday, she loves to ride in the back of the pick up and listens well, to Kyle that is. She has just as many toys as the girls and leaves them thrown all over the house like the girls, but we love her and the girls wont let us give her away. Kyla has come along way with her. She wrestles with her and rides her and plays fetch with her, so Zoe has been good for her, I think she has been good for all of us. Kyle won't say it but he really enjoys her company.

I will try to keep this blog updated more and provide pics, but I make no promises!
