Sunday night Jim and Ammon went home teaching. When they came back home, Ammon was coming down the driveway in his manual wheelchair.  There are some cracks in the cement and one of his wheels hit a crack just the wrong way and it flipped the wheelchair forward. Ammon hit his forehead, scraped his left elbow pretty badly and broke the humorous bone at the top of his right arm.  We gave him some Tylenol and Jim gave him a blessing. He slept through the night but this morning he couldn't use his arm very well.  Jim took him to the pediatrician, Dr. Knochel. He had Jim take Ammon over to the radiation department at the hospital. Dr. Egbert read the x-ray and called Dr. Wallentine (doctor that did my knee surgery) to consult with him. The bone is broken but they cannot cast this particular site. So Ammon has his arm in a pretty big sling and it will stay there for three weeks.  No surgery will be required for which we are most grateful.  Ammon is pretty bummed out about this because he can't use the computer, can't type and can't hold a book with two hands - nor has he figured out a way yet that he can use his Kindle.  

 It's a good thing that his hospital bed can rise and we can move the bed around the room. At least he can watch TV!  I think it's going to be a very long three weeks for this kiddo.

Ammon was given this little award along with the biggest Hershey candy bar I've ever seen. He received it during Priesthood last Sunday. I am very impressed with his abilities. I don't know how to index. Jim does some but Ammon has learned to do this on his own with no help from anyone. Yesterday he did 40 names. Since the award he has done about 120 additional names.  Very impressive, indeed!

On Monday night during FHE we talked about indexing and the temple and what they do with the names that are indexed.  We are very excited about the work that Ammon does and that he is blessed with the ability to read the names and the writing.  Way to go, Ammon!  You continue to set a great example for all of us.

My book of childhood memories

Today when Jason was here my mom brought up my big book of childhood memories. It has newspaper articles,  facts about me, pictures of me, and a journal of all my doctor visits. We also did indexing we got a third of it done. And today was also Jason's first day having dinner with us, Jason thought it was delicious. Happy 4 of July.
