Rockin', Broken, & Barely Hanging On...
My husband is ROCKIN'!
He got me my power cord adapter thing for my computer, therefore I am blogging.
My child is broken---he broke his first bone.
How? Um....as best as we can tell based on reports from our 3 year old, he fell out of his bed around 1 or 1:30 in the morning, and fell onto the hardwood floor. He cried. We woke up. Never heard any kind of "thud". Hubby went to check on him after we heard the cries not followed by the pitter patter of little feet running toward our bed. The cry was an "I'm hurt" cry. We asked him "what hurts?" He said, "my ears hurt when I laugh. We thought---ear infection. Dosed him with Motrin, and got him comfy in our bed. This morning---new story, and he wasn't using his arm.
X-ray showed break in the clavicle at an angle from top to bottom.
POOR BUDDY! He's in a tiny sling and it's even still a bit too big.
And then there's me: barely hanging on. And I quote: "Mom, it's me. Send drugs. Send lots & lots of drugs."
My mom: "For you or for Gage?"
Me: "For all of us. I think we could all just use a big ol' dose of whatever you've got!"
Think Happy Healing Thoughts, and send 'em our way!
Another "First" for Baby Gage
