Ah, yes! Another eventful weekend here at Upper Pond. Typical night at the ski hill quickly turned to a ride to the hospital, an overnight stay, and a return home with a cast on Ryan's leg. Poor kid broke his tibia and will be in a cast for eight weeks. Hockey is over and although I was wishing the season would end, this is not what I envisioned.
So, what have we learned in this life experience...(I'm so over lessons being learned!)
1. Don't wish away a hockey season, no matter how poorly it's going. You never know what will fill its place!
2. Thankful for a Pediatric Emergency Room. Ryan was kept away from all the Friday night visitors in the ER.
3. Also thankful for a Children's hospital in our city. All our needs were met and Ryan felt safe and comfortable in the small time that we were visiting.
4. I'm amazed at the resiliency of Ryan's body and his mind. He was up, working on his schoolwork yesterday and is eager to go back to school. He misses his friends, but also misses the learning. Go figure!
5. It was a perfect choice to have Matt and his friends come over to bake for French class on Sunday. It provided comic relief for all. I think I'm still cleaning up sugar from my kitchen!
enjoy the rest of the week everyone!
