back to the fracture clinic

It was looking to be a good day. Then Asher broke his arm. A little kid at school who adores him knocked him over in his enthusiasm. That's rep soccer over, most likely. It's hopefully not actually broken, but a break in the small scaphoid bone often doesn't show up until it starts to heal, http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/fact/thr_report.cfm?Thread_ID=253 so he has to wait a week and a half in a big fat white plaster cast. Finn was the last one to break an arm, and the time before. And Christy has an arthroscopy on her wrist tomorrow morning, so we have to be at the hospital before half past seven. Another day off school is the only bonus there. I had to break the news to the soccer coach, and that was hard. It means all our plans over the next couple of weeks have changed.

And my friend, whose 12 year old son did something wrong recently that influenced all our sons, is being a total dickhead. She invited Finn to her ten year old's birthday, and made some stupid joke in an email about whether I was 'cutting off contact with her family' and it really was very childish considering what good friends we are. We, all the parents, had all decided on Tuesday never to mention the issue again and there she is making dumb jokes. That didn't help today either, huh.

And so. I'm sitting here at the computer with Monty. He's the big green lizard toy who came on our last road trip. He spends a lot of time in our company *g* but he's always cuddled up to Finn at night.

So. Really hard crappy day. But I have coffee ready. And a neenish tart *g*

Gorgeous photo! Fledge and I are about to go through all her old 'plushies' to see if any can be refurbished... I made her a velvet octopus with kissy lips that used to travel all over Europe with us and variously acted as an extra pillow or a beach ball. If it's beyond rescue I shall probably make another!

Your family do seem to be fracture prone - none of us have ever broken anything unless you count my mother breaking her wrist in her seventies.

Sometimes people make dumb jokes because they're still all nervous inside - be kind and ignore her clumsiness!

I will be kind. I love her, and I'd never want to be at odds with her. I hate that. And I'll always forgive anyone anything if they come to the party. But I did ban Asher from their house for eight weeks - I said he can go back when he turns thirteen and maybe has some small bit of sense *snort*

It's just lately - we got through so many years with nothing. Steve and I never broke anything but a few fingers - and my glasses! And neither Asher nor Christy really broke anything, I suspect, but maybe some internal wrist damage seems on the cards.

Oh well, if we're counting glasses......! *g*
