Oh Drew...

"If it is going to happen, it will happen to Drew". I think I have said that at least 50 times. Well he now has another injury to add to the list. Next to the wasp attack, punctured eardrum and the stitches he can now add a broken bone. He broke his arm. Yesterday he was playing and fell off of something. Of course nobody knows what happen. Will and I were downstairs and Jake, Brodie and Drew were upstairs playing around. Next thing I know Jake is bringing me Drew who is holding his arm crying.

I really thought about taking him in yesterday but decided to wait it out and see how he did throughout the day. He never did get better. We iced it and laid low most of the day. This morning I had a very traumatic trip with him to the Pediatrician which revealed a distal radius fracture. This led to another apt. this afternoon to the Orthopedic doctor who decided to put him in this removable cast. I hope he leaves it alone, so far, so good. I was a little apprehensive about it at first but trying to hold him down for a cast would be near impossible. He needs to wear it for 4 weeks. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

at least he won't have a visible scar.

I don't know how you deal with it all so well, Sara. My heart aches every time I hear one of your boys gets hurt like this, and they are not even mine!!

That was actually me that made the last comment, not Jason. Hope Drew heals fast!

LOL, Stef! I was thinking, wow, Jason sure has gotten sentimental!
