On Sunday, I changed my computer wallpaper to have more up-to-date photos of my two grandsons. The one I chose of Garrett was taken about two months ago as he was preparing to leave to go back home to Fort Wayne after having visited us. I just love that grin on his face!
And look at him last night! Yesterday he had an accident just minutes before his mother picked him up from day care, and he broke the tibia in his right leg. Michelle, Stephen, and Garrett were at the hospital for over 4 hours last night.
Can you believe the size of his cast? The doctor chose the one he did so that Garrett wouldn't be able to walk on that leg. Poor thing will have the cast on for 4 or 5 weeks. I wonder how one
"entertains" distracts a 22 month old active little boy who is in pain and doesn't understand what has happened.
Then today we learned that Garrett had an allergic reaction to the prescribed codeine so back they went to the ER where they ended up spending another 4 plus hours. Besides changing Garrett's pain medicine, the doctors also did some more x-rays. Please say a prayer that they won't have to go back to the ER anytime soon and that Garrett will make a full recovery. Right now the plan is to meet with an orthopedic specialist on Friday for further evaluation.
As you can imagine, I'm greatly concerned about our sweet little Garrett! How different things were less than 36 hours ago.
