Weekend Frenzy

Hello to family and friends! I finally decided to join the blog family. I hope you enjoy all of the crazy adventures of a large family.

Our latest news is our trampoline incident. Friday night dad and Czar were jumping on the trampoline, enjoying some time together, when Czar comes in crying. Yes, he fell on his arm and it hurt. Dad takes him to the urgent care where they relocate his dislocated elbow, take x-rays, give motrin, and send them home with a sling saying there was no break, but they'll send the x-rays the the orthopedic doctor. Czar liked the attention and would not take off the sling, all night. Saturday morning after taking the girls to their activities dad tells me that the hospital called and said the ortho Dr found a fracture and we needed to bring him in for a cast. I jump in the van with all my kids to take them to date night and spend my date traveling to the emergency room. Once there they inform me that the bone does not look broken on the x-ray, but where there is a shadow by the bone, means that fluid is leaking out of the bone which means there is a fracture. They put a splint on his arm and inform me to call the ortho doctor's office on Monday to get the cast. At home dad and I muse over how Czar has had the most injuries, but Meg the worst. I inform dad how surpised I am that Jarom has not had more injuries being our most "active" child, he reminds me that at age 3 he is still mostly cartilidge. I guess I'll start saving for his hospital bills now.

KRisten, welcome to the blogasphere! I am so excited to be able to check in with you and see how one of my most favorite Omaha families are doing. YAY for me!

I am glad you got his arm figured out. How long does he have to stay in the cast? Ahhh, the adventures with having a young family.

Take care!
