broken

The above picture isn't for the faint. Three weeks ago Andrew fell off the monkey bars at the park. The second I got to him I knew his arm wasn't right. We went right to the Children's Hospital. They confirmed my fears. Andrew broke two bones clean through. He was so brave through it all. Especially after they gave him the drugs and turned on the cartoon network. The kid was in heaven (sort of). It was so hard for me to stay in the hospital with him and see him so sad but I remembered back to when I broke the same bone and how my mom stayed at my side the entire time so I stuck it out. The picture above is of the brake and below is after they put his cast on. He was so out of it...we had such a hard time waking Andrew up. Plus it was WAY past his bed time too. Poor guy. He has gotten really good at doing most things one handed. You should see him swing a bat one handed at T-ball. Only 3 more weeks to go!


Andrew in his "Iron Man" cast.


His fingers were so swollen.


His cool arm pillow.

What a trooper!! That first picture could almost be a Harry Potter picture from when he broke his arm playing Quidditch!!! Tell Buddy we love him and hope he enjoys being Iron MAN!!

So glad you're on the mend, Buddy! While we were there last weekend, if it wasn't for the cast we wouldn't have been able to tell that anything was even wrong.

poor little guy. I have not yet had any of my kids brake something, which is surprising cuz they play rough.
