After tennis, we arrived home and I started making dinner. The kids were all over the place so I decided to turn on a movie. Mr. Naughty was restless, walking back and forth to the kitchen and climbing up and down the couch.
That’s when it happened.
*Thud* Then screaming. I ran over and found Mr. Naughty on his back. He was climbing the couch (for the hundredth time that day) and fell. HARD. Really hard if he was crying. I picked him up and looked him over and immediately knew something was wrong…
His arm swelled to nearly double it’s size before we were seen in the emergency room. I knew he must have broken his arm. I was upset but dealing with it. I could handle a cast right?
My husband saw the x-ray and almost started crying. The doctors confirmed what he already knew: Our son was going need surgery to pin his arm back together.
I couldn’t believe this was happening. They wouldn’t even let us go home. I spent the night in the hospital worrying about the surgery. The morning came and before I knew it, they took him away. My husband and older son didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye. I lost it. I quietly sobbed down the hall to the waiting area.
We sat in the waiting area for an hour before we heard anything. I kept thinking, how many times has he climbed on the couch safely? Hundreds of times.
Thankfully, the surgery when perfectly and we were able to go home later that day. I’ll keep you posted on his condition.
It’s a good thing I had these in the freezer! A quick easy breakfast when there’s no time.
