Day 17 - Something That Made A Huge Impact

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

This here would be one of the main reasons that I have been MIA at The Endless Drama lately.

About a month and a half ago, Animal broke his arm trying on clothes (talk about lame! He doesn't even have a cool story to tell!).

While he was trying on a stack of jeans one night, he lifted his leg and got it caught in the arm of a chair. He tumbled over backwards, taking the chair with him. He landed palm down on his left hand and screamed. After Bear got home and looked him over, we decided I should take him to the ER. X-rays confirmed that he had broken both bones in his arm about 2 inches above the wrist.

This is where I need to point out that Animal is one of the most left handed people I have ever met. He does almost NOTHING with his right hand. This meant that he needed help with almost everything...from writing (he has an awesome teacher who did all of his classwork writing for him and gave us permission to write for him on his homework), to dressing, to eating, to basic bathroom functions. I swear he was more labor intensive over the last month and a half than he was as an infant!

Luckily, the cast is off and he has been cleared for normal activity again, so HOPEFULLY our lives can regain some semblence of normality again.
