We were back at the hospital today. You know you've been there enough times when the volunteers start to remember you.
We did x-rays and one bone is healing beautifully, the other is coming along. We looked at the x-ray with a resident and a doctor's assistant. Zach's tibia isn't completely flush. They both seemed a little concerned but the specialist breezed in and was very pleased with the progress.
We then went to the cast room (oh, did mention that we waited 3 hours before we got to the cast room? Why do they bother to give us appointments?) and they took off the cast. He was in a lot of pain, he had black marks on his leg from where he was originally hurt and big black blisters.
All of the sudden I didn't feel very well. I asked Carmi to hold his hand and I went to sit down. The doctor was talking and then looked at me and said "You don't look very good, you're ashen." I told him that I didn't feel very well. I called Carmi and then everything went to black. Yes, my friends, I fainted!
I felt ridiculous! The nurse told me not to worry, that it happens all the time, although usually to the dads :-)
So that was the excitement for the day.
I started to write this on Monday...but as you can see this is the first chance I had to finish it.
Zach is in school and working hard at catching up. RIght now he is orange-legged man and is finding this new cast much lighter. Thank goodness!
This weekend should be a little less hectic....last weekend Dahlia had a sleepover (7 girls) in honour of her birthday. At 2 am there were 3 still awake!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and if you are from Canada, Happy Thanksgiving!
