Medical update

I thought some of you would be interested in an update on our physical and mental status. We have been on the road for over 15 months (5 times longer then most of you gave us) and I must say that we are better than ever. Ammon has managed (with a lot of help from us) to maintain his weight, maybe even gainning now. On his past 3 month trips, he always arrived home missing several (between 5-10) pounds. So, at his past rate, he would be dead by now, if he were doing this trip alone. I must say we are doing an awesome job keeping our leader alive. I tell you it is not an easy job, the boy doesn't like to eat or spend money.... he does have less hair though.
Bre is curently missing her right big toenail. She had to have it taken off..... ouch !!!! She will survive, and enjoy the sympathy in the meantime. Other than that, she has a slight change in her muscle arrangement. She no longer has her gymnasts muscles definition, which she is sad about. She looks great and still attracts the boys just fine. Bre is weighing in at about the same as before as well.
Savannah has changed the most. She is 4-5 inches taller than when she left, and therefore 15 or so pounds heavier. She still wants to eat like a horse, so I am thinking that she might still be growing...... She better be at least, or she will be a beluga whale when we return. heehee
Me, well I'm perfect....................haha. I'm the size I was as a teenager. A slightly saggier, stiffer version though.
We are all strong and ready for more, physically and mentally. We have just spent a week relaxing in Podebrady, Czech at our new friend Michael's big flat while having Bre's toe attended to. The doctor (a specialist) was great and didn't charge us for the 3 visits. Social medicine is a great thing. So is Michael for taking her to his doctor...... Tomorrow we leave the Czech Republic and train it to Slovakia.
Life is GREAT !!!!!!!!

I LOVED that blog!! HAHAHAH, good job, mom it really made me laugh because it's all so true. But C'MON! I can't believe all I get is "she's gained 15lbs. and eats like a horse" while Bre only has a loss of a toenail and gets to attract boys! Be fare mom, I attract boys JUST fine! You saw that SEXY wooden one in the picture! Hahha. And you guys wouldn't believe but she, my very own mother, called me "Butthead" and "Dogface" while playing cards (Speed and Rummy. I kept taking her cards)last night!! Just imagine THAT combination. A little harsh hahahahah. Love you MOM!!
Savannah

Hey Maggie!!!
Loved the medical update, good thing you were'nt in the USA as it would have broke the bank. I am glad you guys are all doing so well, and staying healthy. Has Ammons chest quit bothering him, and what about the jaw?
Savannah, you can blame your mothers poor language on her peers growing up. Butthead well that was Blair I remember, and well she just hung out with a rough crowd.... but man could we dance, hey Maggy!!???
Ammon, go for the shaved head and beard look, you will either look intimidating, or crazy either way no one will mess you up.
Thanks for sharing the stories, and keeping it up.

Love and Big Bear Hugs
