Yesterday did not go as planned!!

I had planned on going to Curves, workout and then scrapbook with my instructor there. She is doing and album that is a gift for a wedding Friday. I went around the circuit twice since I have a bad cold or sinuses. Then started to help her with the scrapbook. My cell phone starts ringing and I notice the number is for the school. DS#2 has broken his leg and will I come get him. Our ambulance service no longer transports and to wait for the city one would take at least 30 min. Since DH is just up the road from where I was, I went and got him. Get to the school and DS is in tears. Nurse said he turned green and almost was sick. Get him to the ER, they were waiting for us. It is his right leg. He has a fracture on the right side and a torn ligament on the left side. Has pain pills, crutches and pills for the swelling. No cast, just a leg brace. All the nurses just love his eyes. My son seems to attract girls/women of all ages. I take him to school as it was ending, to get work he missed and tons of girls are ooohing and awwing over him. I told him he is a little man whore LOL.Now to tell you what happened. They were playing football in gym and a another boy landed on his leg. I am sure that this other boy feels horrible and I told DS to be nice to him tomorrow.Meanwhile I have been sick and all I wanted to do was sleep. Waiting in the hospital sure is tiring as well, must be the smell of meds. DS is having a fit because he can't work this weekend so no money coming in. Plus we have to wait on him and he really hates that. He is very independent. He is 14 and I can't believe this is his first broken bone. He has always been a little daredevil and expected him to hurt himself many times before now.He is sleeping soundly now and DH will drop him off at school in the morning. He has a key for the elevator, at school and will get help from friends to carry his books and such. I am sure most of them will be girls :-)So no stitching for me or reading a book. I am awake at this hour , almost 3:30am because I went to bed at 8 and guess I got enough sleep. I will go back to bed soon.

Sorry I have been away for months, but hope to pop in to check out your stitching more often. The latest finish is terrific!

Sorry about your son's broken leg. You know I can commiserate with him after spending last winter in a cast. He'll men a lot faster than a fat old 58-year-old woman though, LOL! I really feel for him. It really cramps one's style for a while, which seems like forever.
