Sticks hurt... Day 413 30DEC09

Joshua began is day with a round of school work with me while Renee was out doing some stuff with her dad. He did really well and I enjoyed having him read to me this morning. His reading is getting better all the time which is a great thing.

After lunch he left to go on a bike ride up to the park with Jarrod and D.J. . Not long after they left I got a call from Jarrod, Joshua had fallen off his bike and landed on a stick and he wanted us to come up to the park. So Renee and I rushed out the door and drove up to the park to assess the damage and begin triage. He has a pretty nasty scrape on his back and his right arm got a little scraped up as well. Jarrod took great care of him until we got there and never left his side. He is such an awesome big brother.

So we bundled Joshua into the car and trundled on home. After a shower, lots of TLC from both of us, and a little first aid Joshua was feeling better. His back is going to be sore tomorrow for sure but it was a minor abrasion. Thank goodness his platelets are way up or it could have been rather messy. Just a normal kid riding his bike kind of accident, we just respond with every thing short of a medivac helo:)

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

You are oh, so lucky, to have such a cool headed and wonderful big brother like Jarrod! He is absolutely awesome.

Sorry to hear about the scrape. Hope you get all the tlc you need and more. Would have been kind of nice to get a ride in the Medivac Helo though (just a fun ride - not a "for real" ride).

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior.

Happy New Year. Ring it in with gusto.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
