Oh, Tuesday Rotten Tuesday

Bob was horsing around today at recess and fell and broke his wrist. It was not his "pitching wrist" but according to him he "uses it for other stuff." So, that's a drag.

We spent the better (worse) part of the day at Children's Hospital in LA where they were very good to him. The doctor laughed off my innocent suggestion of pain killers for certain family members who could use a little relief, but whatevs.

Bob has a splint and sling for now. He'll see a pediatric orthopedist tomorrow and we'll take it from there. It seems to be a simple break so he should be good to go in 4 - 6 weeks. (I'm hoping 4.)


  1. Oh, no! I'm SO sorry!! Sending love and healing vibes... <3

  2. Sorry Bob ~ ouch! My son, me (&my uncle) have all done this 3+ times. It's not fun.~ Cindy Mann

  3. Oh no! I hope he recovers quickly!

  4. Well at recess my Grand-Daughter only broke the screen on her brand new Smart Phone she JUST got for Christmas, some kid bumped into her and it fell out of her Hoodie pocket... le sigh. I thought that was bad enough and of coarse she was devastated... her phone has become like another appendage, she probably wouldn't have been as upset had he broken her arm!? But she has broken an arm on a playground when a bully pushed her off a swing back in the 3rd Grade so I feel your pain in the ortho surgeon situation... ain't no fun!
