"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

You are probably asking yourself, "What is that?" Well, it is an MRI of Ward's right knee. He has been having pain in it for the past several weeks, it makes a popping noise when he kneels on it or sometimes even when he bends it to fast. Sunday afternoon Ward and the girls were out with the dog when Ward bent down to help the dog and his knee made a "pop" sound. Usually within about 10-15 minutes he can relax his knee enough to pop it back in, but not this time! He came in about an hour later it still hadn't popped back in. He iced it the rest of the evening, and then finally went to bed hoping it would pop in during the night while he slept and the joints relaxed. He woke up Monday and no change. He was able to get his crutches back from his brother and headed off to work, the soonest he could get into see the orthopedic doctor was Tuesday. So today we went to see the doctor who took X-ray's, felt his knee, tired to do a few different test on the knee, but couldn't get a good read on it so he sent us over to get the MRI. Now we wait until tomorrow morning to see if he is headed into surgery on Thursday!

Mom was telling me about this earlier, I am so sorry. Please send him our love and prayers. I will be praying for whatever gets him out of pain and discomfort the fastest. Love you all.
