Broken boy

I've been the WORST blogger lately! Attribute it to our lack of exciting events and my lack of pictures taken over the last 2 months. But now I have something to blog about, although I wish I didn't. Poor baby boy broke his little arm last Friday. We were playing at the park and he fell of a 2 ft. step. Seriously? Only two feet? He's jumped off of higher heights than that. He got nervous when a dog came up behind him and tried to get down quickly and stepped off the step prematurely and fell directly on his left arm.

I could tell something was wrong right away be because he was holding his left arm tenderly and cried for a long time. He's usually such a tough little guy so it was a signal to me we needed to go. Of course I walked to the park so I was frantically trying to get a hold of Kevin who was still at the pharmacy and calling the doctor's office to see if I should go to the ER or urgent care. My nerves got the best of me and I decided to just take him to the ER and have Kevin meet us there.

After 3 very, very long hours in the ER hallway, the doctor said there was a tiny crack running the length of his forearm bone. They splinted Korbin's arm and wrapped it in ace bandage and sent us home with instructions to make an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon monday.

Korbin was a champ and so well behave during a very difficult situation. We all came home exhausted and our friday night was pretty much ruined. Oh well, that's life. Korbin's doing fine. The break hasn't slowed him down at all! He's still making me nervous trying to climb on everything with his little wound :)
Rocking the high heels :)
His awesome plastic bag wrap prior to bath time.

We love you Korbin! I'm so glad you're okay and I'm sure this is just the first of many ER visits in your youth :)

Poor little guy! I hope it's not awful to say this, but he looks really cute in his little cast, even though it's so sad. I hope he's good as new before you know it.

Poor little guy. Probably more traumatic for mom than him! He is adorable and looks so much like your brothers to me, especially in the pic with the high heels. Now that sounded weird...not because of the high heels!

Oh poor guy! Hope he gets better soon!

Oh my gosh, poor thing! I'm sad this happened, but I have to say, he looks really cute with his cast. I remember when I was young, I wanted to break my arm because I thought casts were cool. So maybe one day he'll be proud of it.

That is so sad! It is so hard to just have to watch them and try to keep them safe all the while knowing they will inevitably get hurt at times :(. Glad it hasn't slowed him down-even if that does make it more nerve-wracking!!

Korbin is so cute. That is so sad that he broke his arm, I hope it heals fast. He looks so big and grown up in those pictures!
