Two Steps forward, One step back - Not Down or Discouraged

Doesn't like ICU. Too many rules. Too many needles and tubes. Too many nosy questions. Too little privacy. Too much bad-tasting broth. No escape. Will be glad to move from ICU and into a room today. Doctor says he should be home by Monday. Sorry no pictures lately; I've been busy running him in a hurry to the hospital. Hair is about an eighth of an inch long.

Since you´re back to the hospital,im back to the comments.... New Zealand beat Portugal...108-13....wich was a victory to us(portugal) har,har,har...

Sorry to hear that you in pain again...dont worry it will end soon...you´ll see.

And now...to relieve you pain...some rugby jokes:

The club president, coach, a prop and a wing are taking a charter flight to the National Finals when the engines cut out.

The pilot enters the passenger compartment and says, "We're going down. There's only four parachutes! Since I'm the pilot I'm taking one," and then jumps from the plane.

The coach says, "Without me the team won't have a chance, so I'm taking one," and he jumps out.

The winger says, "I'm the fastest and smartest man on the pitch and without me the team can't win a game, so I'm taking one," and he jumps out of the plane.

The club president looks at the prop and says, "You take the last parachute. The team needs you more than it needs me". The prop responds, "We both can take a parachute. The smartest man on the pitch just jumped out of the plane with my kit bag on his back."

Traveling in a train were a Wallaby, an All Black, a spectacular looking blonde and an older lady. After several minutes of the trip, the train happens to pass through a dark tunnel, and the unmistakable sound of a slap is heard. When they leave the tunnel, the Wallaby had a big red slap mark on his cheek.

(1) The blonde thought - "That horrible Wallaby wanted to touch me and by mistake, he must have put his hand on the lady, who in turn must have slapped his face."

(2) The older lady thought - "This dirty Wallaby laid his hands on the blonde and she smacked him."

(3) The Wallaby thought - "That bloody All Black put his hand on that blonde and by mistake she slapped me."

(4) The All Black thought - "I hope there's another tunnel soon so I can smack that stupid Wallaby again."

Rugby player: "Doctor, doctor, every morning when I get up and look in the mirror - I feel like throwing up. What's wrong with me?" Doctor: "I don't know, but your eyesight is perfect."

The All Blacks were playing England, and after the half-time whistle blew they found themselves ahead 50-0, Jonah Lomu getting eight tries. The rest of the team decided to head for the pub instead of playing the second half, leaving Jonah to go out on his own.

"No worries," Jonah told them, "I'll join you later and tell you what happened." After the game Jonah headed for the pub where he told his teammates the final score: 95-3.

"What!!!!" said a furious Josh Kronfeld, "How did you let them get three points??!" Jonah replied apologetically, "I was sent off with 20 minutes to go."

All the best...

Sorry to hear you are back in the hospital Logan - hopefully things get better and you can get out of there Monday. We continue to pray for you! Oh and we really need you out of the hospital because BYU apparently can't win a football game with you in there!

Geeeez Logan! I have a couple of days where I can't write and look at what you do!!! Really. If you need more attention, just ask for it - ya don't have to go all the way to the ICU again for it!

Well, Kaesyn (Jessica's little girl) and I are here feeling badly that you are in pain and not feeling well again... (Kaesyn really feels badly - I know because she is fussing and acting uncomfortable, which I am sure is sympathy for you!)

SOOOO sorry you have to be back there with all the needles and tubes and medicine and nurses (bad thing?) and mostly, honestly, sorry that you are in pain still and again and worse and... so forth. The thing we are all focusing on is that we know the outcome - we just don't know the path you will take to get there.

We love you, Logan! Thank you for your inspiration to us all!

Love you,
Aunt Sandy (and cousins)

Amy Frandsen here. We've been keeping up with you through Paul's mom. It is a shame you had to shave that amazing hair of yours! Hope it grows back fast, and you feel back to your normal self soon. I loved your attitude going into your surgery, and I'm sure it will take you through this trial, too. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

It is nice to see some names from King Henry on your blog, too.

I must say you have the best caregiver I can imagine looking after you. We love you too, Judy... your charity never faileth.

Hi Logan and Judy and whomever is there reading to Logan -

No postings on the blog since Saturday and I'm getting worried- Judy are you okay? Oh, and how are you Logan?

I know, I know, you're just holding off until Paulo posts a few more jokes.

Are you in a regular room yet? Flirting with the staff? Still getting able-bodied nurses to assist you in the shower?

Seriously, there are dozens of us out here in cyberspace awaiting the updates. It's not like you have anything ELSE to do, Judy =:)

Our fervent prayers, our thoughts, and our hearts are with you continually, Logan. We know you'll come out on top -as usual - just wish it would hurry up and happen.

Oh, and I think I see the correlation between what serious wrongs are being committed in the world and Bryan Hinton's comments -it must be Logan's fault that BYU isn't winning... we were wondering what crack in the universe was causing these losses.

Love you bunches -

Michael & Karen & family
