The Broken Arm Saga Update

Just a quick update: We are off to the hospital for an out patient surgery on my eldest boy's arm. The doctor is hopeful that an external reduction can be done (setting the bone with out surgery). He will need anesthesia, and then if they can not get it set properly, they will proceed to the open reduction, internal fixation (surgery and pins). We are obviously praying for the former, rather than the latter, but what we really want is for him arm to be fixed.

For those who asked, he broke it playing rugby, after being tackled. So he is out for the year from sports.

I'll update later. Thanks for your concern and prayers!

I will pray for you and your family at this stressful time. It so often seems, the more children you have the more things just seem to happen, I looked at your icons, they are so beautiful.
