Oh, the dangers of boyhood!

That's right, it's been a tough week here. Griffin had an accident on the merry-go-round at church Wednesday night. The dr. thinks he fractured his growth plate, so he has to wear this cast for 2 weeks! It was very painful, but he was super excited to have soccer balls on his cast (since he won't be kicking any in the near future). He can't walk yet, but we're hoping he'll be able to soon. He's been getting lots of love and support, and is in good spirits despite the fact he has to be still all the time now (something he's not at all used to)! I'll keep you posted on his progress, but we're praying when they re-x-ray in 2 weeks he will be able to lose the cast and make a quick recovery! A couple funny quotes from our lovely visit at the pediatric orthopedic:
-We had to wait a long time to see the dr., and after awhile Griffin looked at me and said, "Mommy, I'm gonna die here in this dr's office."
-When the dr. did come in he was really sweet, but of course it was pretty painful for my big man when he was examining his leg. After a few minutes he said, "Mommy, I'm being very patient."
I have of course thought and wanted to say those things in the past...just so funny to hear him verbalize them!

Poor guy! Maybe he'll have a quick recovery...none of that 6-8 week stuff.
