Spring Break

Well, we ALMOST made it through Spring Break with nothing but chillin' and relaxin'. Saturday evening, though, the kids were just setting off on a walk with Grandma H. (the boys were walking and Meagan was riding the Big Wheel bike)... they were about three or four houses down the sidewalk when I heard Isaac screaming in pain. He had decided to race Meagan to see if he could outrun her on her bike, but he ran off the edge of the sidewalk... down he went. When I got to him, he was crawling around and crying, "I can't stand up, I can't walk." I grabbed him up and carried him back toward the house. We iced it for a bit, but ultimately decided to take him over to the ER to have it looked at. A few X-Rays and a few hours later, he was in a splint & on crutches.
Today we were able to get him into an orthopaedic specialist in our area. He is now out of the splint and into an air boot thingy. It's basically the same thing as a cast, but he can take it off to bathe (BONUS!!) and sleep (although I may have him sleep in it until we go back to in a few weeks... just in case he needs to get up in the middle of the night). I'm very excited though that he doesn't have to be in a big, bulky, can't get it wet cast! We go back in 2 weeks... he will be in the boot for 4 to 6 weeks.
