Just wanted to say a quick hello to all of my friends in the blogosphere and apologize for lack of updates. Life has been slightly hectic lately. Here is a brief timeline:

11/8 - Three year old yells "Geronimo", jumps off of sofa and injures his left foot.

11/9 - Refuses to walk on said foot and insist on being carried around all day.

11/10 - Force our way into pediatrician's office and see Physicians Assistant who says that she highly doubts that there is anything wrong with the foot. Gives us a prescription for xray to be used if foot gets worse and tells us to get the hell out of the office. Mommy accidentally steps on her toe.

11/12 - Brilliant parents that we are, we decide that his foot is fine and he is just afraid to walk on it. We buy an ace bandage and tell him that it has magical properties and attempt to force three year old to stand on his foot. He screams hysterically, so we give up.

11/13 - In ultimate act of schleppness, Mommy takes three year old to have an xray. The day involved me pushing three year old and my unusually large infant in a double stroller with a broken wheel, while carrying a single stroller and a car seat.

11/13 (Late at night) - Medical assistant calls to tell us that all xrays are perfectly normal. Brilliant parents nod knowingly to one another and congratulate ourselves on being right that there is nothing wrong with the foot.

11/14 - Abnormally overconfident pediatrician recommends we take three year old to an orthopedist. Mommy begrudingly makes appointment.

11/14-11/16 - Brilliant parents try to bribe three year old with Laffy Taffy to get up and walk. Three year old hobbles around weakly to obtain candy.

11/16 - More shlepping! Orthopedist says three year old has a fracture that isn't showing up on xray to due the lack of ossification in a three year old's bones. He says he is going to send brace guy in to put a brace on three year old. Brace guy comes in and says he couldn't possibly lower himself to accept our insurance. Mommy kicks brace guy in the shins. Three year old ends up with a cast.

11/16 (Late at night) - Brilliant parents sit around talking about how we knew it was a fracture all along.

11/17 - Mommy takes three year old to a lovely Brace lady who tells Mommy that no Brace person in there right mind would accept our low class, blue collar insurance. Instead of $350 brace, three year old gets a spiffy shoe to go over his cast.

11/17 (Two minutes before Shabbos) - Three year old rips heal support out of spiffy shoe. Mommy yells alot.

11/20 - Three year old returns to school wearing spiffy shoe. Mommy realizes that teacher has been mispronouncing three year old's name all year.

Mommy = exhausted.

So what did you do wrong in a former life? ROFL!!! WOW!! And I thought I had it bad with 11 cats!

Thankfully, my only trauma this morning was waking up to find Mr. Miss-It had missed the litterbox again and pooped down the side of it. Mr. Miss-It then proceeded to try and cover it up with litter. I now have an interesting form of carpet across the entire cat's room. :]

Best of luck this week!

Omigod...! I went through the same experience with my daughter and her broken hand. So-called "green stick" fractures don't show up on an x-ray but they are very painful.

Sounds like you need to get some rest.

oh my goodness. You have had such a hectic couple of weeks! Hope it gets better!

Laura said...

You poor thing. I am so glad my kids are grown up and all that emergency room nonsense with them is behind me.

Reader of Mommies adventures = exhausted. ;)

I hear your pain girl. My 12 year old just fractured his ankle last week, tore all the ligaments and is in a soft cast (boot) for the next four to five weeks. He wants a little bell to ring (for service). Mommy said NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Have a great Thanksgiving!

How goes the battle of the broken bones?

Awesome Mom said...

I hope your poor little guy feels better soon and heals well.

Citymouse said...

you are the perfect mom!

mist1 said...

I knew it was a fracture the whole time too.

Thanks everyone for the comments and the e-mails. The little maniac was running around the park today with his cast on, so it couldn't be hurting him too bad. I'm glad that he didn't think to ask for a little bell :)

Hope to get back to blogging soon. Kid Rock and Pamela are just too good to pass up.

Hope the weeks up to x-mas get better :-)

Michael C said...

Just wanted to check in and make sure all is well!

jbwritergirl said...

Merry Christmas. Hope all is well.

All right, this blog is love at first sight for me. Your three-year-old and my just-four-year-old need a serious playdate. They can sit; I mean, my son wouldn't require that your kid get up and walk or anything.

Nice post. I'll be posting some owls on my blog later today.

Terri said...

oh too funny; I remember similar experiences with my now 13 yr old. Three times he broke bones in his body, no swelling, minor discomfort, insisting on doctor appts & xrays, while we insist he give it "overnight" to see how it feels. You'd think we'd learn after the 1st time. All three times it was a broken bone!!

It must be slubber'd o'er in haste--its important preliminaries left to the cold imagination of the reader--its fine spirit perhaps evaporating for want of being embodied in words.. Morland, said she, allow me to introduce you to my youngest hope.. Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo.. A psychical procedure has been reached which, informed by the experience of life, exercises with jealous power a dominating and restraining influence upon psychical emotions; by its relation to consciousness, and by its spontaneous mobility, it is endowed with the greatest means of psychical power.. Dear, faithful, old servitor, he said in an unsteady voice, I don't mind saying to you that 'Mars' Pendleton spent his last dollar in the world a week ago.. The dream would not originate if the foreconscious wish were not reinforced from another source.. Thus the dream facade may show us directly the true core of the dream, distorted through admixture with other matter. He thrust his change somewhere into his clothes, and beat a retreat.. We call this condition a psychosis.. But the needs of Babe were instant.. That's what I get for coming here with you, Ross Pryor! And tears of humiliation stood in his eyes.. By all means! Both men felt an anxious yawning in the region of the appetite, and a yearning moisture wetted their tongues.. In his mind he saw a cat-boat upon its side, the sails spread out over the water, and two men, almost entirely immersed in the waves, making efforts to reach the side of the boat.. But I looked at him through the spectacles and saw a satisfaction in concentrated energies, and a tenacity arising from devotion to a noble dream, which was not apparent in the youths who pitied him in the aimless effeminacy of clubs, nor in the clever gentlemen who cracked their thin jokes upon him over a gossiping dinner.. Turning, he dashed for a passing trolley, and, still laughing, swung aboard.. No sooner had I entered the water than this bird took it into his head to fly away with the most indispensable portion of my apparel.. A man twenty-seven years old who had been severely ill for a year had had many terrifying dreams between the ages of eleven and thirteen.. Like so many other young women, she was by no means happy when she became pregnant, and admitted to me more than once the wish that her child might die before its birth; in a fit of anger following a violent scene with her husband she had even struck her abdomen with her fists in order to hit the child within.. Tutt and the driver of the stage.. This force imparts to the dream that influence which we have designated as secondary elaboration for the sake of connection and comprehensibility...
