Frog Blog Love Linky #17

OMGoodness! Could life just slow down for like a minute?!?
Friday, the hubb hubba and I decided to venture out with the wee little boys and take them to Costco. Something we do not normally do for various reasons. GERMS. TANTRUMS. The GEMMES. A 50lb. 3-y-o (he is tall not overweight) in and out of the cart is back breaking. To say that these outings are not fun, would be as UNDERSTATEMENT! However, this trip went surprisingly well and I am sure we will try it again. Anywho, on the way home (it is like a 15 minute drive) I got a phone call from an unknown number. Now usually, I do not answer these calls but I decided to answer this one for whatever reason. After I say my usual HELLO, I hear a little boy on the other end say this; "Is this Ethan's mom?" UMmm, yes. "Well, we have Ethan here and there has been an accident." Why The FACE? Exuse me? He continues in his little 8th grade voice; "well a bench fell on him and he cut." AGAIN Why The FACE (I of course never said that.) My response now is WHERE ARE YOU? (Ethan is supposed to be in school at cross country mind you.) AND IS THERE AN ADULT THERE? Once theadult/ccoach gets on the line guess what happened. THE PHONE WENT DEAD.
So here we are driving to the school hoping that is where Ethan might be and I am doing all that I can not to put my foot on top of my husband to make him drive FASTER, all the while getting the third degree from the hubba about what is going on like I have a clue.
So, we pull up and they won't let me go inside because he is in the loker room. When my husband finally emerges he says "Oh it is just a scratch on his ankle. We'll get him home and see how he feels."
RELIEF!! So we take him home and I head off to another appointment. When I return my little man is saying that his foot is still hurting and we decide we should have an X-ray just to be safe.
4 hours later we return home with this...
That's right he has a broken foot. AND there is nothing we can do about it until we call an ORTHO on Monday because he broke the bone smack dab in the middle of his foot. I believe they said 3rd Metatarsal. (c.w. did I spell that right?)
Poor kid was waited on hand and foot all weekend. Then first thing Monday, I call the Ortho to get an appt. and they tell me we have to wait another week. WHATTTTTT? So I say to the lady, is that safe since it is broken? Oh, and we got an appt the Tuesday afternoon. Around midnight on Monday I hear him making noise downstairs and the poor little dude is puking his brains out! OMGosh, are we all feeling sorry for him yet or what?

Well, that subsided around 3 a.m. he rested most of Tuesday. We head out to appt and 3 hours later he come home with this... 
A fancy black cast. Which he will be in for at least 6 weeks. And he has to have Xrays weekly to make sure the bone stays where it is supposed to. SO, I feel like you all know me well enough now that I can be honest and upfront with you all but I swear if there ever were a lady that deserved a BREAK
IT IS ME!!!
