I can not believe the day we had- we are back from the Dr after the school called and said Brandon fell in the bounce house-really?!!! He has 3 medical excuses to not do PE and Recess in his records on file at the school and they let him go in a bounce house. He fell on his arm trying not to hurt his hip and broke the bone in his upper arm.
We have an appointment on Thursday at 8:15am but until then it is in a sling. Where it is broken they usually don't cast and our Dr. said they used to wrap it but they have found that is heals usually just being in a sling-so that is what he has at this point. We won't know if they will do anything else till Thursday. Thankfully since it is the bone in his upper arm he is ok pain wise with just Motrin if he doesn't move it much.
I am so sad and angry and I know it shows in this post and I am trying not to be-I hope if I write about it now that when I go to the school in the morning that I will only reflect Christ. I really want that-I am trying not to feel this way the the human, mama bear side of me is coming out and I am in shock and disbelief that they allowed this and someone really dropped the ball on this and I am really struggling with being kind, sweet, compassionate and understanding.
I need prayer for not only having to go into the school tomorrow to inform them that it is broken and see what they plan on doing about it but that Brandon is ok and that there isn't something wrong with his bones. He has broken two other bones, his ankle and his wrist at 10 months and two years, both from falling on cement and commons falls and breaks but now with this break and the hip break (they say that was caused by the cysts) that is 4 in almost 7 years-he will turn 7 in August. I keep going back and forth in my head-Satan is having a field day with all of this.
I am worried something is wrong with him. But the only thing that makes me think maybe not, is we have gone 5 years since he broke his arm so surely if it was some bone issue he would be breaking things all the time and they wouldn't be healing.
Our Dr told us today that it isn't a stupid question to ask the Orthopedic Dr on Thursday but he has seen the same kids 4 and 5 times in one year with broken bones and that the Ortho Dr's have said it was normal-so I will ask but I am praying it is nothing more than accidents.
Also the Ortho Dr at Cooks surely would have thought something was wrong with his bones if they would have seemed brittle or something when she was in there operating on them and she didn't say she was worried about anything. I don't know-so I am of course asking that he would be ok and that he has just been really unfortunate in having this all happen and that his arm would heal quickly-the only thing he could do this summer is swim and now we can't do that either. I am sad and hurting for him-I think he doesn't get why him? Not that we should ever really question that-cause why not us? It is just hard to understand at 6.
Please just pray I will be a light and I will reflect Christ tomorrow at the school-I am not angry at anyone really- just really upset at the situation and that this was allowed to happen-it just should not have happened with those excuses on file. I expected when I sent him back to school that he would be protected and I didn't have to sit around worried about what might happen-he was out for 3 weeks-the school knew that and the if all the teachers at the bounce house didn't know that someone should have told them and it shouldn't have happened.
I want to reflect Christ when I go-my human side is mad and sad and hurting for my little boy-I expected to follow the rules and they didn't-but I don't want to go there mad, sad and angry-I want to be a witness-please pray for me. Thank you for being so willing to always come along side us and cover us in prayer.
I have a feeling I might be asking a lot of that from you all for the next 18 years at least.
The last week with the car being broken into and now this-I am feeling a little defeated. I will trust in the Lord with all my heart and learn not on my own understanding.
Praising Him on this Pathway-
