I am a firm believer in the "there's a reason for everything" mentality. But let me tell you, I am not entirely sure how it's even possible there is a reason that my five year old breaks his femur after being in a cast from his hips to his toes for two months
and not moving even after it was removed for three more weeks.
THE DAY HE WAS CLEARED TO MOVE HE BROKE HIS LEG.
I felt so horrible for him.
His leg was broken for about three days before I figured it out. (he has no sensation below his waist)
I took him to the ER..... read HERE about that visit
We stayed in the hospital til Monday....
And came home with this:
(Notice the surgical hat? He HAD to have one...he called it his party hat....then he rolled his eyes and would dance around....and then he made ME wear the party hat as we left the hospital...only Kumaka would call a SURGICAL hat a party hat....surgery equals party in his book LOL)
The one thing I have noticed through it all is when I am just sick that this sweet boy has to deal with one more setback, he is still smiling. He has not complained once about having this cast. He hasn't even mentioned it actually. I breaks my heart, but he acts like it's part of the drill. He doesn't know the difference. This is the face of an angel I say....I stress....he smiles. I need to remember that if he doesn't complain then I don't need to stress. I am learning every day from my five year old boy.
