our first broken bone....




To be quite honest, I'm truly surprised that it has taken three and a half years for me to be writing this post. Gavin is such a rough and tumble little boy, proven by all of the bruising on his little body. Saturday morning, Gavin put on a cape and was calling himself "Harry Potters"he climbed to the top of Nana and Papas playset and jumped - believing that he could FLY! He wouldn't walk on it, but it wasn't really swollen or bruised at all and he stopped crying really fast. I decided to just watch it, on Sunday, I was going to bring him in, but then he took a few steps and it looked about the same. So this morning when he woke up, he still wouldn't walk on it, so I brought him to the clinic for xrays - and it was broken! I feel terrible- I should have just followed my first instinct and brought him to the clinic. I was very impressed with our doctor today, he did a thourough exam and put my mind at ease that no harm was done by waiting a couple of days - but I still feel terrible. The casting was a family affair - but Gavin sat perfectly still and didn't complain at all - he just asked a lot of questions - he's such a good kid. He thinks his blue cast is really cool and can't wait to have people write their names on it. It could have been a lot worse, so we'll take a little broken foot bone!

Hi Gavin!! When you were on the phone you said you wanted to fly like Harry Potter on his broom. You are Crazy! Your cast looks pretty cool. I can't wait to sign it.

Love, Lauren

Gavin - you are one tough cookie. Cool blue cast (I totally would have gotten blue too if I broke my foot!)

Owen kept saying last night "poor Gav. I don't want Gav sad" ;) so he colored you a picture and I'm going to send it tomorrow. Hope your foot is feeling better. Love you sweetie!
