Last Sunday night Gunner managed to break his leg. He somehow jumped from his bed or off his dresser onto the floor...we think. We weren't in his room when it happened. He has a spiral fracture on his tibia bone (shin bone). All the doctors and nurses kept saying it was a bad break.
Just what parents love to hear!
He's been incredibly brave and so strong. We are so proud of him & how he's handled all of this. He's been in so much pain and has been so good about everything he's been through. He never complains unless he's hurting. He still has his happy attitude and is cheerful through it all!Here's a recap:
Day 4 (Wednesday): I somehow managed to get him in the shower and cleaned off! This kid can sweat and actually started to stink a little. :-) He had a good time in the shower and we ended up getting normal clothes on...no more pajamas! This is how we get around in the house (at least downstairs). He loves his new wheels.
This is how we pass the time. Reading books, doing puzzles and meals all takes place in the wagon.
Overall, with each day that passes he's doing better. I'm just so thankful that he's okay. Gunner received many blessings and I know his Heavenly Father helped him feel better. We love you Gunner boy. Get better fast so you can run and jump again soon (except no beds!).
This is Gunner's rendition of the moral of the story:
