broken


The words I dreaded hearing last Saturday. Jake landed from of his play structure into the ER with a broken radius. He was showing off to Rachel, the cute little girl who lives next door, who also happens to be in his pre school class, and fell. Crunch. There's a lesson in this young man, care to learn it? He is so not going to be one of those guys. Nuh-uh. No way.

After the fall, he was remarkably stoic and barely shed a tear which was why we didn't take him into the ER until the next day. Remember the broken collarbone? He did the same thing then, just didn't let on that he was in any serious pain. He's one tough cookie who's ever so slightly, um, accident prone.

I know this happened a while back and I'm just strolling through your blog, but my daughter did the exact same thing wrestling with my oldest nephew, her cousin. He debated to even take her to the ER as she fell asleep on the way to the hospital! It's amazing how tough kids are in general. She had one dose of pain meds and fell asleep afterwards she refused to take it because of it knocking her out. What a trooper!
