Breaking Up is Hard to Do


Jace is feeling better, but is getting frustrated with his limitations and his itchy brace. Last night he cried because he won't be able to play and ride for at least a month. I think it was a combo of not enough sleep as well as being fed up with his lack of mobility, the rash developing in his armpits didn't help either. I think the cons are beginning out weigh the pros. Sure mom has been making him cookies, running to his every call, writing his homework, he has control of the television, and his sisters are leaving him alone, but he can't get out of bed without help, can't dress himself, and today he asked me what he would do when he had to poop. It doesn't take long for the fantasy to fade and reality to set in.

This photo is Jace's actual x-ray.

Poor kid, doesn't sound as good as you put it in your last blog.

Yeah, the pooping thing - not "cool" to have to be wiped by your mom. He'll have to figure out how to use his other hand. :-) When Josiah broke his leg we were all at his beck and call - he watched movies nonstop. I asked Eric to pick up a lollipop for him and he came home with a TWO pound bag of lollipops. We're still eating them!

OW!

May he heal quickly --- and may you not lose your sanity in the process.
