Mama called the doctor and the doctor said...

So, Monkey is just that: a little monkey. He's also kind of a daredevil monkey. Luckily, he's also pretty coordinated. But his coordination couldn't save him from disaster on Friday. Monkey is now sporting a lovely almost body cast in this spring's hottest color; red. No, Monkey did not fall off the bed, even though that would be entirely possible, he fell off a bike. And broke his femur. Which is hard to break. At pre-school. I was there. I felt bad. Now I'm feeding him goldfish and chocolate milk. Cuz I still feel bad. Doesn't he look like he feels bad?

He was wiggling around so much his face is a blur, and he is wearing Brian's boxers since nothing else can fit over the cast.

After visiting the ER in Sedalia, they transfered him to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, just in case he needed surgery. He didn't, but the Orthopedic Surgeon put him under in order to set and cast him. They were even able to leave out the stablizing bar they usually put between the legs. His cast goes almost up to his chest, right under the bottom line of words on his T-shirt.

Please, please, keep ME in your prayers. This is going to be a long 6 weeks! I'm just sayin'.

Oh my! He looks to be not too upset, but I'm sure he'll get bored quickly. On the other hand, I'm sure this will not be an easy time for you. I will definitely keep you in my prayers.

I cannot believe that happened! Poor thing, and poor mom!
I'm really glad you were able to avoid surgery, though.

I'll be thinking of you!

Bless Him and may he heal very fast. Could hardly believe Andy when he told me about it. Tell him to hang in there, Tom and Vicki

Hey, I had this same kind of cast when I was two (but I didn't get a cool color. I fell off a swing.
