An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

A Fractured Growth Plate

Near the end of August (during the time of the computer crash) Cole broke his leg. The boys had been out in the woods building a tree fort when Trent chopped off a piece of wood from a branch and it flew and hit Cole in the leg, fracturing his growth plate just above the ankle. I will not be receiving the Compassionate Mother Award this year I guess because I let the poor kid crawl around for 3 days before I finally thought maybe he wasn't kidding and he really did break something. X-ray's confirmed that he had fractured the growth plate and he was fitted with a splint, cast and crutches. Cole just kept on smiling and he never complained about it once.

His mother brought home a puppy in hopes of showing him how sorry she was.

Aw. I feel bad for both of you. I know well how it is to wait on going to the drs in order to see if your child is nursing a sore spot or if it's really serious.
