All I can say is~

Hold your head up!  Wednesday night Bo hurt his foot on our trampoline, yes that making us not only part of THAT family but a national statistic!  We went to the urgent care clinic for xrays yesterday morning, it showed no broken bones but an injury to the growth plate?  I had no idea a kid could injury his growth plate.  But guess what you can, and from what the doctor said it would be better to be broken.
We are living in 5 minutes to see an orthopedic surgeon we will see what they recommend, rest, ace bandage, cast....  We will see.
But I am holding my head up, God will protect my son.  All this transfer stuff will go as God plans, and I will Survive.  (I just broke out in song there can you hear it, I will survive I will survive)
Hope your day is great!

When it rains it pours...or floods in your case. Sorry to hear about Bo-((hugs)) for him.

Do you know where you are moving to?

I hope your son is ok. I just started my blog over here on blogger & love reading your blog. We have a trampoline also, and I worry sometimes about the kids. I will pray for him.

We went through the growth plate problems with Bradley. He was to wear a big old $500.00 boot with steel braces. Yeah right.
It was the week of church camp. Little did he know, I could check pictures online to see how the week was going. NO BOOT. Not one picture of the boot.
Tony said to leave it be... what boy would want to wear that clunky thing at camp? The next week we went to Disney World and he didn't wear it then either.
I was hoping we could get it on him when everything settled down and we returned home, but that's when he decided he wanted to live with his natural mother and he left us. He never did use that boot. said...

Poor guy!

I remember going to a friend's house and jumping on her trampoline. It was my first time ever being on one and I loved it. We spent hours out there. A week after that visit, her little brother broke his neck doing a somersault on it and they took it down. He wasn't paralyzed but ended up having a world of problems from it.

I remember my friend saying how much she wished they'd never even purchased the thing.


I also just remembered that I got my very first-ever kiss on that trampoline by her cousin, Drew.


I hadn't thought about that in years.
