The smallest member of the blue man group!


Just a little background:

Last Saturday (the 28th) Braden started limping. I just thought he was outgrowing his tennis shoes and we immediately put him into sandals. Didn't work. So then I thought maybe he sprained his ankle. Nope. No swelling or bruising. By this time days have gone by. Wednesday I get a call from his daycare saying he's still limping and it hasn't gotten better. On Thursday morning we go to the Dr, who sends us to get xrays, who sends us back to the Dr, who sends us back to pick up the film on our way to another Dr. We end up seeing a Pediatric Orthopedist who takes a look at the xray and determines a "greenstick" fracture. Braden is now casted and will be for three weeks. We'll have it taken off, rexrayed and then go from there. So far, it hasn't slowed the little booger down! And he's pretty darn tough to have a broken leg for 5 days without us knowing. What's in store for us next?

I saw him today. It doesn't seem to be slowing him down any, that's for sure!!!

Poor buddy! I'm glad it doesn't seem to be affecting him too much. I will agree with Susan #1- It is an awful time of a year for a cast---WAY TOO HOT!!

Don't you just hate that? I am so sorry - yuk! We were at Ashley Moore's wedding a few weeks ago. It felt like a Mesquite reunion. We sure missed you! It brought back so many sweet memories. Love you!
