Our First Cast






Check out those guns!!!


He got to pick the color... Jon suggested 
pink but Griff chose blue!

Well, I made it almost 7 years with out anything to major happening!
Gavin did get 4 stitches in his chin about 2 1/2 years ago, but this is
the First cast, and it belongs to my 2 year old!  He has a Supercondyl
Fracture Humerus Closed.  And we have a picture to prove it!:)


If you look closely above his elbow you'll see a squiggly line going thru
the bone.... that shouldn't be there!  After about 2 days he was walking 
around like nothing was wrong!  He had almost full use of his arm but
it was swollen, he wouldn't put weight on it, and he held it always slightly bent!
When we walked in to my good friend Courtney's house she laughed and said
"I can't even tell which one it is!"... his right arm hanging by his side and his left
bent and resting on his waist!:)

The good news is that it is very minor. Requiring only 3 weeks of wearing a cast.
The BEST news is that his cast is water proof!  That is so cool!  It should make
the next 3 weeks much more livable!

Yeah for a new post!

He is still the cutest little boy with the name Griffin I've ever seen! And he's taking it like a champ!

He looks so cute, you know anything miniature sized is cuter, including a cast! What a stud! It may be water proof, but will it still smell?

Any idea how it happened yet?!?!? That's crazy and totally cute all at the same time! I always knew he was a tough guy!

oh how sad! But for some reason I think little kids in casts are so cute! Abd it makes it so much cuter cause he is such a cute little kid!
