Well it all began last week when I got the call from my husband to say that Matt got hurt at school and that he was at the hospital. I'm like WHAT! And when did it happen and why are you just calling me!

Turns out Matt and his friends at school were playing King of the Castle on a small snow hill, his one friend pushed him and he fell and they heard his leg snap. Yes he ended up breaking his femur! The school called an ambulance (the first time ever they had to do that) and basically the whole school was around him. One kid thought he was faking and kicked his bad leg the little shit. I saw him at school yesterday and gave him a dirty look - you know the mom look.

He ended up staying in the hospital for almost a week. They kept him drugged up on morphine and tylenol till friday when they did his surgery. The surgery went very well the doctor said. He will be on crutches and/or a walker for 8-10 weeks and the titanium rods will come out somewhere between 6-12 months. He has along way to go.

He had alot of his friends come to see him as well as family. Lots of presents to keep him busy in hospital and once he got home.

My work has been great and hubby can work his schedule around mine. He came home on Tuesday and has been either in bed or on the couch. He's making up for his lack of computer time when he was in the hospital.

I am in the process of having the school get him a tutor so he won't miss much. He's out for at least 2-3 weeks and that puts him back around the March Break. No biggie then he's back for 4 days and then Easter.

We are just glad to have him home.

OUCH... my grandson broke his femur, and he was only 2 at the time. Try convincing a 2 year old in a body cast that laying still for 8 weeks is a good idea. But he is fine now, you;d never know. I hope your son is feeling better.
