Last weekend was our church's high school retreat.....which Madison was too sick to go to because of her mono. Andy went and was having a great time until he "hurt" his ankle on Saturday afternoon playing some weird game where the kids put boxes on their heads while crashing into each other on a huge sheet of plastic that was covered with slippery soap.

It wasn't hurting bad enough for him to want to come home....so he stayed for the rest of the retreat. When he got home he was limping....but his ankle wasn't swollen or bruised....just tender requiring him to limp. So, the next morning we told him to "suck it up" and shoved him out the door for school on Monday. When he got home he said that his ankle was making "clicking" sounds. Well, I didn't really like the sound of that....so I made him a doctor's appointment just to make sure there wasn't anything really serious going on with his ankle. I took him in on Tuesday afternoon.

At first the doctor didn't really think it was broken either because of the lack of swelling, etc....but wanted to have an x-ray taken just to be on the safe side.....he thought it might just be sprained and got him a pair of crutches to use. We had the x-ray and went back to the doctor's....who informed us that Andy was going to need a bit more than a pair of crutches!
He did in fact... BREAK HIS ANKLE!!!
Major "mom guilt" at this point.

So...Andy is now in a cast for at least 6 weeks!!
I think he's going to milk this one for all it's worth!

Until next time....be a better mom than me while stamping :-D
Hugs, Cindy

Oh , momma guilt - there is nothing like it :-)
I don't think I have ever seen such a long skinny cast before. Hope is doing better soon!

I think we all have had our share of mom guilt over the years. Wait until they're all grown and out of the house; those memories pop up every once in a while. I hope he's doing well. Pampering him a little might help ease the guilt mom.
