Todd's broken leg

Friday 6:30 p.m. - just purchased new trampoline
9:00 p.m. - Todd and Reagan freezing and jumping!

Saturday 9:00 a.m. - Todd takes a morning jump.
9:15 a.m. - Todd invites daddy to jump with him.
9:20 a.m. - Todd takes daddy's bounce and lands.
Mommy and Reagan's bath is interrupted by crying.

10:30 a.m. Recruit MoMo to come and take a look. Bait Todd with swimming and Life's a Beach. Todd would rather go to the hospital. Call pediatrician, they refer us to Cooks Children's Hospital.
11:00 a.m. Mommy and Todd leave for the Hospital.
12:30 a.m. Doctor informs us Todd's tibia is broken.

Thursday, we went to the Orthopedic doctor to get his cast. We were glad that this was the day because Todd's splint was looking pretty bad. Todd met doctor Hamilton and he informed him that he broke his Tibia and showed him the location. Dr. Hamilton smiled and said Todd was exactly right. After much deliberation he chose red for his cast.
The cast gets to remain with us for four weeks. We go back May 11th to see if the break has healed. Hopefully, all will be well so we can get that leg ready for swimming and T-ball.

Hey - I think he is trying to catch up with his dad - ask Adam about a small straw and his trampline adventure to the hospital - Tramplines and our family = hospital trips every other time!

Andrew and I thought Todd looked so cute yesterday at church. I loved the stroller/wheelchair:)

How like a boy!! I love these little adventures we as parents get to re-live with out boys. Tell Todd that his cast looks awesome-red is a perfect color. Also I hope it does heal fast. We need to get over there to sign it now.

Around here we,ve had as many as 18 kids on the trampoline at one time and never once had an injury. You put 1 kid on there with his dad and get a broken leg- what luck.
