Just Part of Being a Boy
So my team got into the DI Championship game and fought back from an 0-2 deficit but ended up losing in 5 games. Even though 2nd place isn't what we wanted, it is the best finish in school history. I am extremely proud of my team...they had a great season! I am also extremely proud of my son who sat through my 2.5 hour match with a broken arm!! He came up to me after my match and said he hurt is arm at recess. I didn't think anything of it cause he seemed fine(and I was also still upset about the loss...I know...bad mom). We met my dad for dinner that night and Logan started to really favor his left arm. This morning he woke up with a lot of swelling so I loaded him up and took him to Cook Children's Hospital to get an xray. Gene met me there from basketball practice (yep it's basketball season). The doctor took a look at the xray and told us he had a subconjular fracture. I'm sure I don't have that spelled correctly....it's been a long time since I took Anatomy & Physiology. When we got to the hospital Logan immediately thought he was going to get a shot....he asked everyone who came into the room, "Are you going to give me a shot?" I must say, we saw a ton of people from the register person, xray tech, splint guy, nurse, doctor and volunteer just to name a few. Every single one of those people were so kind to Logan and made us feel like we were the only people in the ER...which we definitely were'nt.
I'm pretty sure they all were the reason his face went from the 1st picture to this one. They took good care of him at Cook's! We will be going on Monday to an ortho to get a real cast. He can't wait for his friends to sign it. :) Unfortunately his first flag football game was today so he had to miss. Hopefully he will make it back in time for 1 or 2 games. I am proud to say that he asked if he could go watch and cheer his team on....and we would have if we would have made it out of the ER in time. He was happy to hear that the Thunderbolts won 12-6!!!
You never like to see your children hurt or sick but I'll take a broken arm over a severe illness any day. Logan and I talked on the way to the ER about how there are so many children that are really sick and have to stay in the hospital for long periods of time. He told me right before we entered the ER "I'll be ok Mommy....God will heal me" to which I replied, "yes He will.". I love that little boy!!!
Thanks again to ALL of the people at Cook Children's Hospital...y'all are awesome!!
