The past few weeks have been rough. Things could definitely be much worse but overall, they have been the most stressful in a really long time.
Friday a week ago, while I was at a friend's house down the street, Blittle called and said Jaxson jumped from the top steps into the yard. My heart stopped. That is about a ten foot drop. Jaxson is 10 years old and has arthritis problems. I knew he wasn't going to be okay. Blittle said he was hurt and to get home. My friend drove me home and as soon as I was in the yard, he hobbled over and put his head into my chest. I knew he was hurting.
