Little Mister broke his arm. :(

Friday morning around 8:30am I told the kids to play in their newly cleaned room. Three minutes later I hear screaming...from my son.

(I thought that he landed on a toy and scratched his back.) I laid him on his back and tried to calm him down to find out what happened. 

That is when I noticed this.... 

this is a picture of his crooked arm.

I quickly covered the rest of him in a blanket just in case he got cold. I grabbed my phone to call 911. Andy had the van and I didn't have a way to get Eli to the hospital. I then call my friend up the street and ask her if she could take Charlie for me. Then I call Andy and tell him what was going on. 

 The fire truck arrived before the ambulance. They used one of my cardboard boxes and splint his arm. One of the medics kind of irritated me because he was like "oh he'll need surgery and we need to get him to UCDavis." Even though I explained that we are Kasier patients and need to be taken there. He insisted on UCDavis, I didn't feel like arguing and just wanted my son to be taken to the hospital. (Insurance will cover it, but I don't know if we'll have to pay OOP and then get reimbursed). 

At the same time they are taking Eli out to the ambulance, Andy gets home. So I leave with Eli and Andy stays behind a few minutes to make sure my friend has everything she needs for Charlie. 

 The ride started out like this:

 We then got to the hospital, he was given a room right away and seen by some doctors right away. They were all very nice and informative.

 He got some pain meds...

We then went and got an xray done of his arm. The lame tech asked him if he could flatten his arm. umm NO, and move your hands because you aren't going to try and do it for him! his right arm on the table thumb up, like a karate chop.

 Then we waited around

 When one of the nurses walked out he said "She sounds like a man." LOL :embarrassed: I'm SO glad she didn't hear him. 

Then it was time for them to get ready to set it. They gave him heavy sedation so that he would go to sleep and wake up and not remember then setting his arm.

Andy and I walked out of the room for a bit. Neither of us wanted to stay. Well I originally wanted to, but then Andy suggested that I not stay. We came back to a freshly casted sleeping prince.

 When he woke up he told me that he had a dream that he went to outerspace. He didn't see any martians, but he did bring me back a moon rock. He would wake up for about a minute and then conk out. He woke up saying different things and singing different tunes. He woke up one time and sang "God is bigger than the boogie man." and then went back to sleep. lol 

 After spending 9 hours in the ER, he was ready to go home!

  1. I just found your blog by watching a review you did on the Child Training Bible (just placed my order & ordered the other stuff on amazon!).

    I had to say that I feel your photos. We have spent this summer dealing with a football injury. My son called from the high school and said,"I think I broke my arm". There was no doubt, it looked like your son's! We had fun listening to the stories the recovery nurses had about him. I guess he was singing to them when he woke up.

    I hope by now your son is well. Mine was released 2 weeks ago back to full contact football! Kids sure do heal fast!

    I am excited to look arounf on your blog. Have a great day!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Stephanie! I'm glad my review was helpful to you. I love our child training bible...although, I find myself using it for my attitude as well!

      I'm sorry to hear about your son breaking his arm, too! they certainly do heal quickly. I'm glad that he was able to get back into football.

      I try to update the blog regularly, but Iv'e been so busy lately that it seems I don't have time anymore. I'm trying to schedule some new blogs so stay tuned!



I welcome any and all comments, concerns, questions or anything else you would like to add. I'm so thankful you could stop by!
