Being mommy, never a dull moment!
Published on October 14, 2007 By foreverserenity In Parenting
It may seem like my life is hanging by a thread sometimes. One more snap, just a fraction and it all goes by the wayside! But I will not utter defeat, or think defeat. I will tarry on as other mom's do and have done! What I really need is a visit to that shaman lady back home to give me a bath or something and wash my house out with some of her rituals! Times like these I miss my mommy, she would have taken care of all that for me!

I'm just back from the hospital with my 13 year old who had a mishap with his roller blades. Bad enough that he had surgery today and is wearing a cast. I slept by his bed last night at the hospital. My little one spent the night with her big sister and I sent hubby home to man the fort and field calls since only one parent could sleep over.

He was rollerblading at home, had a nasty fall and in trying to break it, broke his elbow instead. Our ER visit turned into a transport in an ambulance to the specialist at the other hospital at midnight last night. His surgery didn't happen til this afternoon at 3:45 though and he is finally home in bed, sleeping and I'm sitting here, exhausted and listening out for him, til I feel it's safe to take a few winks myself.

He's pretty adamant about going back on his skates, although I fear his dad may have already tossed them in the garbage! I can't say I blame my son from wanting to go back to one of his fave past-times, oh the young don't know how far they shouldn't go!

I could regale you with every bit of detail, but I won't. Suffice it to say, I'm glad he's alright, he's got some pins in his elbow and will have to return for a post opt check up in two weeks. In the mean time I have to worry about his school and how much he's going to miss this time. It's his right arm, his writing hand. I'm sure I'll find a way around this so that he only misses one day, but I can't think too clearly now and will sort that out tomorrow. Wait, it's already tomorrow!lol! Since I've not gone to sleep yet, it's still Saturday for me!

He's going to be fine though, thank heavens, so as long as he listens and doesn't try to do anything with his arm for the first two weeks! The doctors and nurses were really wonderful! He had them quite amused and laughing with his dry sarcastic humor! My son is rather on the dramatic side and he isn't afraid to say what he thinks and questions everyone and everything with the ease and innocence of a 13 year old!

Another day, another adventure, I guess I don't lead a boring life uh?!lol! I'm not even going to ask what happens next, because I seriously don't want to know! I will however, hope to come out of the next adventure, unscathed and in one piece!

Now about that ritual, I'm seriously performing one.....

I think my whole spirit cringed when I read that.

Ouch!

Ouch... I'm glad he is alright, though. There is nothing fun about a broken arm.

I know. It is painful!

Nope! He's on perocet and is in so much pain.

An elbow sounds so painful. I hope your son is feeling better today. I admire his whole getting-right-back-on-the-horse attitude.

Now about that ritual, how did it go?

Yes, I admired his attitude too! Kids are so resilient!

Haven't done it yet, but am going to since I'm home today! My son is very distracting though, so I might have to wait til his percocet kicks in!lol!
