Default Aiden had an accident:(

My poor little Aiden is at the hospital now, with a broken arm. Bruce left to take Nikki to the hospital. Aiden was with his Dad, at the laundramat, and, somehow, had this accident. I don't have all the details. Bruce just called and they are bringing him to xray now...This is going to be tough for this little guy... Think good thoughts kids......

OUCH

I hope the little guy had a nice clean break. I bet Dad feels almost as bad a Aiden. Don't let Mom give him too hard of a time.

I broke mine, when I was five, playing Tarzan and swinging from a rope in the hayloft. My Mom stopped giving my Dad a hard time about it when I was about 21.

I hope he's all better soon and Grandma should be the first one to sign his cast. It'll look really cool!

Take care,
Mike

Poor little guy!

Looking always for whatever bright side I can find...The good news is that kids tend to think that a cast is far more cool than the parents and grandparents think. While we are all feeling guilty, sad or anxious they are planning to stash things down into it, get it signed and learn to bang things with it to make cool noises. Maybe he'll luck into a fiberglass cast in an awesome color. One of our little neighbours actually cried when they removed his "awesome blue super arm". He used it for many weeks to smuggle snacks in his sling and to stuff paper money, at one point a couple of weeks before it came off he was the envy of the neighbourhood because he was "parking his little cars" in part of the cast that had loosened. The dr had to laugh at the little tire tracks that he found on his arm the day they removed it, he said little boys always have stuff stashed in them when he goes to remove them.

Hang in there, prayers heading his way.

Michelle

Trip my thoughts and prayers out to the entire family. I'm sure Adain will do better than the adults during this. Kids heal so much easier than us old folks and it is just a bump in the road for them. Keep us updated and hope all goes well for all of you.

You will be amazed on how fast they adapt. My daughter then 3 had gotten her leg broken while with her dad. He didnt even call me until the next day after it happened.........only once he knew he had to fess up since he was taking her to the ER and I work at the insurance company.

My parents have a pool and she stayed there during the day thru the summer so she sat at the side of the pool with towel and trash bag and enjoyed the summer.

They've even now got these things calls castoos - they are tatoos for casts. I just read about them at the ortho doc this week. Took cool!!!

Trip sorry to hear about Adien's accident, but soundsl ike he is in good humor so no worries and it was a even break. These things do happen, and I bet Daddy feels worse that it happened on his watch.

Trip... sorry to hear about Aiden's accident. But it is one of the things "we boys" do. Thankfully that's all it was.

I can still do a tour of my body's boyhood scars. (We're not born that bright )

So sorry for the little one. But he will love all the attention. Kids DO think casts are cool! How old is he, Trip?

Linda,

Aiden will be fine... It's us adults that won't be!!! My Lauren has broken her leg, arm and finger (all separate incidents) all before she was 10 years old!!!

Each time we go to the hospital she laughs and jokes with the Doctors and Nurses while I had butterflies in my stomach and felt like throwing up.... Oh, and if it's anything like here in Florida... the hospital will not place their broken whatever in a cast.... we had to go the next day to a orthopedic surgeon for that.... Go figure...

BUT, I do think the best way for Aiden to get better is by taking him and the entire family on a cruise!!!!

Keep us updated on his progress...

Linda,

Sorry about the broken arm but it does sound as if Aiden is taking everything in stride. I'm sure Dad feels worse about it.

Only problem I can see is getting to close to little Lucy and accidentaly hitting her with the cast. Don't need both of them hurt.

Let us know if he got a colored cast and what color he chose.

Thanks to all of you for lifting my spirits...I guess we all feel the pain more, when our kids get sick or hurt. As always, we can count on our Cruisemate pals to be there...xoxoxox
