So, just as you think things are going okay, something happens to throw things off kilter. Just a normal evening turned into one very apologetic big sister and a trip to the emergnecy room ending with a foot in a cast. It seems Ryan and his big sister, Sarah were playing together. They were holding hands and spinning around until Ryan fell and banged his foot on the coffee table. I tried to soothe him, but to no avail. Because Ryan does not speak, we have to use trial and error to figure out what is wrong. He was able to crawl, but not able to stand on his left foot. I took him to the ER where they did some x-rays. Nothing looks broken, but to be on the safe side, they decided to place his foot in a cast until Thursday A.M. AT that time, they will re-x-ray it and determine what else if anything needs to be done.
I just stinks that because of Ryan's DMD, I worry excessively about him and his well-being. I wish so much that things were different, but I thank God everyday for the beautiful children he bestowed upon me.

HI Jennifer, just me again. I am sorry to hear about Ryan. Alec has almost the same story to tell when he gets old, only it was his arm. He was 3 and couldn't talk yet, so we brought him to the ER. The drs swore it was not broken, they thought it was a dislocated elbow. After several tries of popping it back into place, and him screaming in pain, they decided to take an xray. Sure enough his little arm was broken. Then like 6 months later he fell off the bed in the middle of the night. This time when I took him in, I demanded an x-ray before they touched him. He had a broken collar bone. These poor boys. It is so hard to figure out what they are feeling inside when they can't even talk. Hopefully he will have a speedy recovery.

Hi Jennifer. I am so sorry to hear about Ryan's foot. I hope he is doing better. I can relate to your fears about his well-being. Karsten has had several scary head bumps - more like goose eggs - in the last few months. All from falling down. His arms seem to fail him and his forehead just hits the floor. Overall his clumsiness has gotten much worse. He falls to his knees multiple times during the day and there is always at least one minor head bonk per day. His doctor's say its all normal toddler stuff, but I can't help but worry.
