Derrik doing his thing behind home plate
I always wonder what people are thinking when Ryder cheers "Go Daddy!" when it's little league kids playing. They usually figure it out when Derrik comes to talk to us between innings.
And since we're talking baseball... a little update on Derrik's real career. He's been throwing bullpens for about 2-3 weeks now. He is at the field six days and throws two bull pens a week. He had one rough day so far, but the rest have all been great. He feels great, is in great spirits about it all, and is in high hopes he'll be back out there with his teammates soon. They even scheduled his tentative first game on the calendar! This will be for the extended spring training team that plays at the spring training fields. He will play on this team until everyone feels confident he is healthy and ready to go. I forget the exact date Derrik told me, but it's only about a month and a half away!! We are still open minded to all the avenues our life could go in the near future with his career, but for right now are focusing day to day on how his arm feels at this critical time and are obviously greatly distraction by the upcoming arrival in our family :)
AND... I'm obviously still pregnant... 38 weeks today... 1 week from our induction date! I'll update after our doctors appoinment tomorrow afternoon with any news!!!
