Don't catch a baseball with your jaw. I've posted a picture taken yesterday, after having caught the ball Monday evening. The bruises go down to my collar bone.
This weekend, DH and I watched our 12 yr old grandson's traveling tournament team beat four other teams. They're seeded #1 out of the 9 teams in the tournament. Due to scheduling conflicts, we aren't there right now watching the championship game. But our DD will let us know how the game turns out. We had a blast.
I'll be with my sisters this next week, so won't find out the results of my back MRI until I return. It may be a pinched nerve causing leg problems. We'll see.
God's blessings on you.

Still having internet access problems.....
"Equipment disputes are not protestale" Booooo!
Monday evening was the championship game for the 12 yr olds. Josh’s team was the visitors, so they batted first. In fact, Josh batted first, and hit a home run! Yea! True to ritual/habit, the ball was given to Josh, but his Dad (one of the coaches) gave it to me to hold during the game because at the bottom of the first inning, the Dodgers (Josh’s team) took the field and started throwing balls to warm up. I caught one of them with my jaw and collar bone. Nothing broken, no loosened teeth, but plenty of pain. My DH got ‘ice’ packs from the concession stand, and I held them to my jaw throughout the 6 innings of the game. : )
My face hurts, and is swollen a bit, but I’m dealing with it with Vicodin and ice packs. After I was hit, the boy who missed catching the ball stood on the field side of the fence and looked upset, so I managed to tell him I was ok. I didn’t want him to feel bad. I should have been looking.
It was an exciting game, which the Dodgers won! Whoopee!! The best vindication for the way the game went last Saturday. Made my jaw feel better, too. Haha
After the game, I gave the home run ball to Josh saying, “I missed the home run you hit the other day, but I saw this one.” He replied, “That’s why I hit this one for you.” What a grandson!
Am going to the ortho dr today to get results of last week's MRI of leg. Hoping for a miracle. I truly am being tested, with God's 'ok' - and am trying to be found faithful in His sight. Did I mention that I recently lost a car key that cost a small fortune to replace? And discovered this morning that instead of giving me a 90 days supply of meds, my pharmacy only gave me 30 but charged for 90? After my dr visit, I'll be dropping by the pharmacy and am hoping I can get the remaining 60 pills. sigh. Did I mention? I'm being tested. But praise the Lord, His strength is made evident in my weakness. God is in control, and I'd rather be where I am (in His will) than anywhere else.
I'll participate on SP later today if I can again get interet access.

Ok, this morning's championship little league game is over and I'm still steaming. First, some background:
The 12 yr olds play 6 innings. There were only 4 teams in that age group, so they played each other a lot during the season. The play-offs were double elimination - you had to lose twice to be out. Josh's team had won their play-off games prior to today.
Josh's team (the Dodgers) was the home team, and today they played the Pirates, who had lost an earlier game.
In the bottom of the 5th inning, one of the Pirates' coaches claimed one of our bats was illegal. There were two outs and we had a man on base. The ump declared our batter out which took us to the 6th inning. He did not give our coaches a chance to prove that the bat (which had been used all season, even against the Pirates) was legal; but that didn't stop our coach from looking online at the rules. He stopped the game and showed the ump and the other coach that the bat IS legal. The ump said the game was going to continue. We WILL file a protest.
Yes, the Pirates won today. But when push comes to shove, that's the only game the Dodgers lost, so there should have to be another game.
Grandma is angry at the other coach. I shouldn't say more.
On a brighter note, the weather was beautiful - almost hot at that early hour (game started at 9:00 a.m.)
Time for me to move on to something more pleasant.

Just a quick note: tomorrow's little league game is supposed to be for the Championship. It's a double-elimination play--off, meaning that when a team loses twice, they're out. I think Josh's (undefeated in the play-offs) team will play a team they did beat during the season, and I think that team has lost one game in the play-offs. Sounds good for Josh's team becoming the Champs. : )

Just a quick, bragging note. Sunday evening Josh's little league team played a make-up game, and (because we were two minutes late) I missed his homerun! He got the ball to take home.
They played again last night (the first of the play-offs) and won. They'll be playing again tomorrow night, and the winner of that game will proceed to a game either on Friday or Saturday.
Now that school is out for the year, the boys can concentrate even more on their games. I have my fingers and toes crossed for Josh's team of 12 yr olds.
Ok, enough baseball talk. On to another (boring to you) subject. I've been in serious leg pain for six months now. First it was a torn meniscus, then this and that, and today I had another MRI so the dr can see just what's going on in there. I'm tired of the non-stop pain (approximately a 4 on a 1 - 10 scale), and while I'm struggling to rely on the Lord and praise Him for what He's allowing, I confess to having trouble sometimes, and even shed a few tears....that makes me human.
Whatever the MRI shows, I already have reservations (air and motel) to spend time with a couple of my sisters in another couple of weeks. I imagine that will be painful, but I'll get through that. But thank you for your prayers.
I'm still busy knitting and crocheting for the fall craft fair. Keeps me off the streets, I like to say. Haha. I also got a lot more of my book read today. I'm trying to finish it before I go on my trip. Really informational book about Crazy Horse and Custer (by Ambrose) - gives me a whole different perspective on Custer, the Plains Indians, and the times.
Y'all have a great Thursday.
