would like to welcome our newest member,
the Broken Arm Club!
(We were playing at a park downtown and Emma was helping Seth on the monkey bars. He slipped and she came running, crying, “It looks really weird! Seth’s arm is really bad!” I got him, rushed him to the Emergency Room at the hospital that was 3 minutes away and my mom, who was here, luckily, took all the kids home. Seth had surgery later that evening to pin his arm (the humerus detached from the elbow). He stayed overnight, everything went well and was released the next day. He’s starting to get the hang of moving around with the cast. The doctors said it would be on for 3-4 weeks. We’re grateful that we have insurance, money to pay for medical things, modern medicine and a Grandma that could take care of kids for two days!)
