Thankful Thursday

Last night my 12 yr old went snowboarding. He had a little accident and this morning we took him to the doctor for xrays on his wrist. There are no visible fractures of the radius or ulna (long bones of the arm) but they are worried about the growth plate where the bones meet the wrist. The swelling is pretty bad so it is in a splint for now. We will see the orthopedic surgeon on Monday.

It could have been something a lot worse so we are looking on the bright side and today I'm thankful for:

Good friends

Ice Packs

Good doctors

Modern Medicine

Xray machines

Tough kids


Dr. Pepper


What I'm NOT thankful for? Ski Resort First Aid people who let an injured 12 year old sit in the lodge for 3 hours WITHOUT an icepack!!!

It's been a long 24 hours. I need a weekend.

Way to look at the bright side! I hope he's doing better. I hate when my kids are hurting.

Ooooo.....ouch. that sounds familiar. Only add a compound fracture, 7 screws, and a metal plate. See? Things could be worse.
