JUST SOMETIMES.....

Just sometimes...
When you work in the ER you take care of a 2 year old with a broken leg.
(Spiral fracture on the tibia)
And that 2 year old happens to be your grandson!
Just sometimes...
You go to the orthopedic doc a few days later to help mom with the 2 year old.
And he gets a rigid cast.
Just sometimes...
You realize NOTHING is going to slow down a 2 year old.

This is the same break Micah had a few years ago. Nothing slowed him down, not even going to kindergarten on crutches.

I love this post - I was moaning today while walking about some muscle spasms I was having. I want to be like your 2 year old and let nothing slow me down! blessings, marlene

That is so funny that he just keeps going. You'd think it would be hard to get around.
Nice he is such a trooper :-D

What a little trooper!

Momza said...

awww..that must've been so hard on you, Granma! He is one very brave and tough boy!

That is one of the greatest lessons our kids can teach us. No need to let life defeat us, we can defeat it and keep living it! :)

Valerie said...

I bet he was so glad to have his gramma there! Poor guy. My youngest daughter broke her arm when she was 2 and used that cast as a weapon against her brother and sister.

Julia said...

Well your cute little grandson might have been unlucky to have broken a bone but he was very lucky to have his pretty grandmother working in the OR that day.

A 2 year old will heal very fast. Speedy recovery to the cute busy little guy.

oh man! what a 2 yr old! wish i had a rigid cast to at least ATTEMPT a slow down in my life right about now. just sayin'.... a cast-like brake to engage would be helpful... kinda like a grown-up's life-version of an E brake. am i alone here?
love you!
::hugs::

He is a little trooper! What a sweetheart.

gigi said...

You are such a Rock Star Grma! I would have been a wreck! Hope he is doing okay and will heal fast.

Saimi said...

Brenda said...

Oh my! That is the cutest thing to see him on that little bike with that big ole cast on his leg!

No. You can't slow down a 2 year old! :)

Yvonne said...

What a cute little guy. Isn't it wonderful that nothing keeps them down. Hope he heals quickly.

Connie said...

He's so cute! It's good these little ones heal so quickly, but it breaks our heart to see them in pain.

I can't think of a better nurse to take care of him than his grandma!

" Hit It......." said...

Oh my heck, that poor kid. I think I would struggle watching that little guy be in so much pain. Surprisingly, he looks ok. Amazing that he keeps going; kind of like the energizer bunny. If you were here, I would buy you a Diet Coke or something. I need one for you!

Valerie said...

What a cutie! There's too much world to be explored for him to be slowed down by a silly broken leg! :)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Oh no! Poor thing! Kids are very resilient though.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

That's really sad, but I love how it doesn't stop him! It's funny because were we to be in that same situation, we'd be all limpy, groany, whiny, and immobile!

Joy For Your Journey said...

Oh wow!! I bet it was hard for you to see that!! But it is great you were able to be there with him when he was injured. And I love the last picture!! I hope I have that same kind of "face the world with courage" approach to life!!

WhisperingWriter said...

Ha, so true!!

Ann Marie said...

Poor Grandma! At least you know his Nurse was good!

Two year olds have so much energy.. spunk.. and determination!

I think they truly can do almost anything!

Hope he heals quickly...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh now, so sorry about that. Like you said it hasn't slowed him down at all!

Lene said...

Like a cast could ever slow a little boy down...

Barb said...

Ooooh, poor baby!! I hope that he heals quickly so he can keep up with you . . . or should that be the other way around?! Hugs to him and his grandma!

Hugs,
Barb

Kerin said...

How lucky he is to have you to help nurse him !

So sorry for him that he has a broken leg, and a heavy cast.

He's a cutie-pie, and it's awesome how he's not going to let a little thing like a broken leg slow him down.
Ah...little boys.

Doran & Jody said...

Oh sad deal!
Glad it won't slow him down though. Just watch out for the swinging cast.

Leontien said...

haha no sometimes they don't! I am glad to see it though! That is a huge cast!?!

And yes the nurses were very sweet!

I hope you are doing well
Big hugs from Indiana

Sherrie said...

Oh my! Poor kid! But glad it won't slow him down. He is pretty cute!

Connie said...

Oh no. Poor little guy...no wait a minute, POOR MAMA!!! He looks like it didn't even make him flinch.
