Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Well, we didn't make it two full weeks before we had another big injury. This time a fractured elbow... Otherwise known as a "broken arm".

Last night at about 7:00 Rivers was sitting in a chair in our living room (over carpet) and he fell out of the chair catching his fall with his right arm. It looked totally harmless (I saw him fall) BUT he immediately started screaming that "this is for real" scream. Jimmy ran over and picked him up and we started looking him over for injury. As jimmy started feeling of his right arm he got even more hysterical and we realized his little wrist was swollen and bruising. So we spent the rest of the evening icing it and giving him Tylenol for the pain. When he still seemed to be in quite a bit of pain even with the Tylenol I knew something worse than just a bruise was going on.

So this morning I took him to his regular doctor they referred us to a pediatric orthopedic doctor who confirmed with an x-ray that he did indeed have a small break in the elbow. NO!

Now my baby boy will be in this awful cast for FOUR weeks. It makes me so sad to think of him having to deal with this massive thing while he plays and sleeps and eats for four whole weeks. I am praying it goes by fast and that it doesn't bother him much!

He is such a sweet little guy.... But boy is he gonna give us a run for our money.

Oh NO!!! But, Tarrah, he looks so happy in the pictures! I can't believe how resilient he is! Poor little Rivers!
