We almost made it out of the football season with no injuries. I did say almost.
Kyle finished his last football game on Tuesday. Cody finished his last football game on Saturday morning. Connor had his semi-championship game on Saturday at 12:30.
With just seconds left in the 2nd quarter, Connor catches the ball and runs for the touchdown, at the 9 yard line he gets tackled. At first it really did not register with me that it was Connor that was down. I saw all of the coaches run over to him and the stands were very quite. Everyone telling me he is going to be o.k. (you know that thing the us mom's do when a kid is hurt). I see my hubby running back across the field and he is waving for me to come on the field. So I'm still thinking o.k. not too bad.....Wrong! Hubby then shouts "go get your car". I then scream "what? how bad is it?? I just grab my purse and head for the car, leaving my camera and camera bag. My mother-in-law says she will ride with us. We go get the car and I pull up to get Connor.....I wait oh about 30 seconds and then get out of the car and people are telling me he is still laying down on the field. So at this point I just leave the car and run out on the field and as I am getting closer to him, the coaches have him up and walking to the car with a piece of wood under his arm for support. My sweet friend Barbie (yes, she does kinda look like a barbie-doll) says she is going to drive us to the hospital...Hip hubby is in his car following us. Barbie driving, my mother-in-law in the front and me and Connor in the back and like the good mom that I am I still managed to get the seat belt on him. But forget about me I am on my knees in the middle of the suburban holding him. We make it to the hospital and we get in right away. By this time we have 6 people with us me, Tom, my mom, Barbie, and my in-laws. We go back and they put us in a room. We wait about 15 minutes for x-rays. By the time the x-ray girl comes to get Connor we now have about 15 people in Connors room. Tom and I go with him to the x-rays and YES it is broken......Connor broke is arm right below the wrist.
Would you believe that with 3 boyz all playing sports this is our first broken bone that has to have a cast?
This is the look you get after you hear the doctor say that the orthopedic surgeon might have to manipulate your arm....Oh let's just say that did not go over very well with the patient.
Yea,,,we're out of here. Look how cute Connor looks with his sling and his football pants. Notice the no shoes! It was hard to walk on the floor with the cleats on.
Connor and I took a picture of our matching hospital bands....
We go the the ortho doctor tomorrow morning so I will keep you posted.
