Hey, it’s snowing! That’s because it’s November and the #HoHoHoRAT begins in just six days! For the month of October I read/listened to 21 books and have read 226 of 250 books towards my Goodreads challenge.
This was a good week, busy but good. Halloween was lovely and all of my peeps came for pizza, the bonfire, and trick or treating. Friday morning when my daughter dropped the Royals off before work, she asked me to take a look at the Prince. Apparently the night before he lost his balance and fell from the sofa. Not a great height, but he cried and fussed about his leg hurting then proceeded to play. However, he would periodically fuss about walking. He did the same at my home and I knew something wasn’t right. I advised her to call the pediatrician. My motto is better safe than sorry. She did and after a series of questions they sent him to the children’s hospital. There was no bruising or swelling but if I touched a certain spot high on his leg he said boo-boo.
Our little man broke his femur!! Honestly, I expected her to call and say he sprained his groin or pulled a muscle. I thought the femur bone was hard to break, but the doctor and of course our friend Mr. Google assured us that it is quite common for children six months to three years to fracture it.
Now he is in a spica cast for five weeks! He’ll celebrate his 2nd birthday in this contraption. Google it…it’s horrible and the whole diaper thing… 😱 We ended up having the Princess most of the weekend so the kids could focus on the Prince. They had to sedate him to put the cast on and did it Saturday morning. Then meetings with physical therapist and a fitting for a special car seat. This Nonna is tired physically and emotionally and I am sure his parents feel the same. Send coffee and Stay Caffeinated.
