This past week has been a busy one.
When we do have some down time we like to PARTY!!
Well when it's Scott's birthday that is.
On Thursday we celebrated Scott's 27th Birthday.
I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday and he told me he wanted to go get some frozen yogurt. So after we went to the gym we stopped by his favorite frozen yogurt place. He loved it :)
On Saturday we had some friends over for cake and a few games!
I made one of Scott's favorite desserts:
Bienenstich - German for "Bee Sting"
It is said that the baker was stung by a bee while making the original cake...
that or the sweet glaze attracts a lot of bees.
I Americanized this one though...
Basically it's a bread like cake with layers of vanilla cream
and topped with an almond carmel glaze!!
I chose to make this one with 4 layers... I like how it turned out.
A few other projects that have been happening around the house...
Scott was told by his Occupational Therapist that using his right hand for fine motor tasks would be beneficial to him. I looked at him and said... "Yeah, you should join me at making jewelry."
His therapist thought it would be a great idea! I felt bad that I had even brought it up. But here is a fun video for all of you to see he actually did this :)
Here is the final project.
Happy Mother's Day Patti!!
PS- this should be coming in the mail for you sometime this week.
Scott no longer has any weight restrictions for his right arm.
The Orthopedic Surgeon told us that things are looking good. He said that the metal plate they put in his right arm to fix the radial bone will stay put. He did mention that the Radial artery was weak (at best) and that Scott is now Ulnar dominate. He also pointed out that part of Scott's radial bone had grown up and over the metal plate. Luckily this isn't a problem but it is something very interesting. When we first learned about Traumatic Brain Injuries we found out that some patients will experience abnormal bone growth. Looks like Scott experienced this in his arm.
So the good news is Scott can really pump some iron at the gym :)
Well we are signing off-
Happy Memorial Day to all of you!
Thank you for all of those who have fought so hard to
keep us safe and give us freedom.
Thank you to my sweet husband who was and is willing to serve our country.
