Cameron did such a great job we stopped at Sonic and grabbed a slush and headed home. We got the call and he officially broke his arm. We got the cast on Friday April 5th. He did so well with it for a while, and now likes to use it as his weapon. We went to get it off May 3rd, but he wasn't moving it and cried when the Dr. pushed on it, so it went back on for 2 more weeks. It comes off tomorrow, no more weapon for Cameron!
I was April 11th and I was preparing for our trip to Hawaii. Enjoying shopping with a friend for the afternoon it was so nice no kids and shopping with a good friend and then my phone rang. I don't usually answer numbers that I don't recognize but I did and it was Paige's teacher. She told me that Paige had gotten hurt/fell off the slide before school had even started. It took her a while to tell her teacher what was wrong, but wasn't moving her arm and it was swollen so I should come pick her up. Being a little selfish I tried to get Jason to go get her but he wouldn't answer his phone, so I went and picked her up from school. Being the good mom I am I looked at her arm at the spot that Cameron had hurt his arm and it wasn't swollen at all, so I told her she was fine gave her some Tylenol, and had her elevate her arm. Stuck on a movie and went back shopping. (Jason was home) Well I finished shopping and picked up the other kids and headed home. When I got back home I examined her arm more thoroughly and discovered that her wrist was really swollen. She wasn't moving it and I thought maybe I will just watch it and if she is still not moving it tomorrow take her in. We had to the nursery to look at plants for the yard, and then I headed to my monthly GNO, and enjoyed myself. To my surprise when I got home Paige was in my bed. She couldn't sleep and was in pain tossing and turning. I felt terrible and really should have done more. I took her in to the Dr office in the morning, and sure enough she had a buckle fracture of both bones. We had to wait for the swelling to go down and she got her cast on the following Wednesday. The thing that has been the hardest for her is missing gymnastics. She just got her cast off yesterday the 15th and is in heaven!
