Broken

broken arm

Poor little guy. He broke his arm on the playground at school yesterday. Both radius and ulna snapped. Had to have it reset by the orthopoedist.

Not the best way to spend a Friday, but he was such a trooper.

I'm hoping this is kind of like getting the first little dent in your car. After the first one, the ones that follow don't seem so bad.

Because I know it's impossible to keep that car from getting dented again, no matter how much I try to protect it.

Poor guy! I hope he's feeling ok. I dread our first broken bone, mostly because I don't think I'll handle it well. But it's bound to happen eventually, right? Get well vibes to all of you.

Oh, yuck. Just the thought of it makes me cringe. Poor little guy. I'm a very nervous playground mom so playgrounds frighten me. At least he'll get to wear the cast around like a badge of honor.

But gotta love having a dad who's a doctor. So reassuring to have your parents there for you!

Huh. What's up with all the broken bones? Jonah broke his collar bone a couple weeks ago, too! (Also on the playground at school!)
