In which Gabe body slams his own foot.
First, I just want to tell you that I wrote this post over three separate breaks in my day. I started in the emergency room this morning, then briefly in my living room until chaos broke out this afternoon and now in my very quiet living room because most of my children are in the garage watching a movie on the projector with about 6 of their friends.
I love the projector very much.
I’m writing you all from the emergency room this morning. This isn’t the first time I’ve blogged at you from the e-room before either. I would say that it’s probably not the last time either but I’m not one to invite trouble. On purpose.
Here is a picture of him looking oh-so-wounded while we waited for his x-ray.
You should probably send him some get well cards and a couple of gifts.
Yesterday Gabe got up off the couch and stepped around one of his friend and his foot turned sideways and his whole body fell right on the outside part of it. I don’t know what that even means but that’s how he is explaining it. Turns out he sprained it pretty bad and the doctor suspects it to be fractured. There is an abundant amount of swelling but the pain has now dulled to an annoying ache with occasional sharp spurts of stabbing knives.
Gabe’s to wear this little boot thing on his foot and hobble around on crutches for one week to make sure it stays stable in case of a fracture. He thought this was cool for about 3 minutes. Apparently the novelty hitched a ride out of here because now he complains that the boot is annoying and the crutches hurt his hands. I reminded him to be thankful that it is not a cast.
And instead of my planned Best Christmas Gift Ever post, this is my post for today.
Tomorrow we will discuss the wonders of the spongester. Or I’ll it discuss amongst myself. Either way you’ll never look at a dirty sponge the same again.
