Last year, about this time, Sam broke his leg.
Josh was at a sleep over last night at a friend's house.
I got a call at 6:00 this morning that Josh was a bit home sick and had been crying all night so I went to pick him up. As I was walking out the door, the mom told me he'd fallen down the steps in the afternoon, but appeared to be fine.
As soon as we got in the car, Josh was complaining about how he couldn't move his arm, how it hurt so badly he couldn't sleep -- or eat his pizza for dinner!
Mom's radar went off. We got home, told Daddy and went straight to the E.R.
Sure enough, Josh has a small fracture on a bone at the base of the elbow. It's on his "upper arm" not the forearm, so he's going to need a full arm cast -- hopefully we'll get that tomorrow.
Josh is most upset because he's going to miss his FIRST baseball game on Saturday -- and probably 3 more after that! When I said he could still go to the games and show some support for his team, he said, "But Mom! It's boring if you're not playing!"
So tomorrow watch this space for pictures of Josh's cast?
Any guesses on the color he'll choose?
