Jessie and the Broken Bones

Although it's her right arm this time. At least it's not her writing hand (lefty).

The kids crashed the 4 wheeler thursday night. After talking to Tyler last night, and talking to Jessie, we are fairly certain of what happened, but I was around the corner waiting on them to return and didn't see it.

I'll write more later, but after 28 hours in ER's and hospitals (we went first to Wooster Community, and then to Akron Children's since she had a broken blood vessel behind her eye) and surgery on her arm (the surgery part was simply to knock her out to reset the bone -it was the closed reduction procedure) we are home. And she is oh so happy to be home.

So now we are off to Tyler's soccer game and then home to back on the couch for a couple days for her. The doctors said after a week of rest, she can resume gym and soccer - so we shall see. She's already 100% more mobile after this broken arm than the broken leg. And she's planning on going to school on Monday.

Sorry to hear of Jessie's injury! Wishing her a speedy recovery - it doesn't sound like it will slow her down too much! Take care.

So sorry to hear all of this, I read it on your mom's blog and was really worried! Sounds like she will be fine after a short time. Kids can really scare you, I know mine have no fear of anything1! And that is what gets them hurt.

Oh no! So sorry to hear about Jessie's injury, but it could have been so much worse.
I'm amazed at how fast kids heal and get back to normal again.

If the same injury had happened to me, I'd be down for weeks! :-O
