Thems' the Breaks Kid. . .

Rate this Entry
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!

    Are kids wonderful? My middle child had the same break when he was about 6 years old. He fell from a 4 foot high slipper slide at his brother's baseball game. When we went to the hospital I told him it would be okay and he looked at me and said "No it's not, it's broke". He went on to play Tee Ball with one arm. Here's wishing your son and you a quick recovery.

    Yowch! !!

    he said "No it's not, it's broke".
    Kids are so funny that way! Ethan broke his arm once before when he was 3, he was trying to prove to his (older) brother that he could "Climb Higher and Jump Further". He climbed his wooden dresser, jumped off - but jumped too hard, hit his head on the ceiling, giving himself a concussion and breaking his arm when he hit the floor.
    The doc that was removing the cast on his arm asked him how he broke it and he told him what happened. The doc said, well I guess you didn't win. Ethan was peeved, he said "YES MY DID WIN, I got to see My Bones in a picture, my brother didn't see HIS Bones".

    As we were leaving the office the doc called out, "We'll be Seeing You again Ethan, I'm sure". LOL, if only he knew!

    Here's wishing your son and you a quick recovery.
    Thank you very much
