Thems' the Breaks Kid. . .

I was hoping that with the New Year, some breaks would come our way. Perhaps the next time that I'm asking for breaks in life, I ought to be quite specific. The kids were out playing yesterday morning, I was working on a new recipe when I heard a commotion outside. I went to the window in time to see dh holding our youngest sons arm. I immediately went to the door & dh hollered that we had to go right now! I thought that he'd somehow managed to get bitten by a venomous snake but apparently, it was a bike stunt gone terribly wrong.
We spent the better part of New Years in the ER to find that both his radius and ulna are broke. He has to undergo surgery later this week to realign things to where they are supposed to be. The surgeon will be putting in pins and possibly a plate as well.
It was almost like having a baby again, getting up every couple of hours throughout the night. Only this time it wasn't for feedings, but rather pain medication. Would you believe, the child broke his arm and didn't even cry until hours later when they "attempted" to set it while he was wide awake. I truly hope that our members and guests had a considerably less expensive and less eventful New Years day!
