  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

Deja vu

Ben re-broke his wrist last night while at a sleepover at his friend’s house. For those of you keeping score, he just got to take his splint off from the first broken wrist last Friday.

He and his two buddies were screwing around on the top on a bunk bed. They had been told to get down three times. Ever the good listener, Ben got down quickly… by falling from the top bunk onto one of those rolling drawers that goes under the bed. Both the drawer and his wrist came away slightly worse for wear.

Unfortunately for Ben, it is no mere buckle fracture this time around. He appears to be working his way right up the Broken Bone Scale and is the proud owner of a gen-u-ine Greenstick Fracture. That means that one side of the bone has broken and one side is bent.

This is Ben’s actual xray. The yellow arrow points to the break (on the top side of his forearm) and the red arrow shows the bend on the other side of the bone. The milky white line (not pointed out by a convenient arrow) spanning the bone just above the break is the old buckle fracture which has healed.

Perhaps he will learn a lesson from this incident about listening. Yeah, right.
