Broken bone #5

throwback Last fall, we had one incredibly stressful week. On Monday, we found out that a family member was hospitalized and possibly near death. On Wednesday, Quinland broke her leg while playing with friends. On Thursday, David’s mom called with discouraging news regarding her cancer treatment, and she flew in for a much-desired visit on Friday. On Saturday – as planned weeks before – we picked up our two newly-adopted cats. Yep – it was a humdinger. 

This little peek inside that crazy week has been one of the most-viewed posts over at Get Started… Go! and is available here for your viewing pleasure.

Break a Leg!

Break a leg!


My kid is fragile.

He has had four broken bones in his arms. On Wednesday, he added another bone to his tally: a spiral fracture of the tibia, courtesy of a quick move in a game of Capture the Flag.

Poor little bunny. It’s tough to be stuck on a couch for days on end, unable to so much as shift position without someone to help you hold up the massive cast of doom. It’s hard to be stuck on one floor of the house, unable to sleep in your own bed upstairs. It’s seriously disappointing to have it happen during your favorite season of the year, just before Scout Camp and your birthday and Halloween.

But my kid is an amazing kid. He thanks the x-ray techs and the people in the cast room so graciously. He finds things to occupy his time while stuck at home. He entertains friends at couch-side, and even stays awake (when he is soooo exhausted) to watch Glee with his mama. He keeps his spirits up through it all.

I love my kiddo so much. He impresses me over and over again with his grace under pressure.

I’m grateful for the outpouring of love and support during our hard week!
