What has kept me occupied lately

On top of everything, we've been dealing with a daredevil 13 year old. He fell off a golf cart at the cottage, and after a bit of an investigation, it wasn't due to bad driving (the kid driving is way too responsible for that), but more from our son hanging off the back.
And the result of that would be:

Yup. A possible fractured scaphoid bone. (and what's not shown is the broken finger tip on the other hand. Hopefully, it's all short term, and his basketball season won't be impacted for more than a couple of weeks.

We've made it this far with minor injuries, I fear we are just getting into the prime time for this, if my own past and my husband's are anything to gauge.

Kids, gotta love them.

Hope he's better soon.

I've never heard of a "scaphoid" bone but if the fracture will only keep him from basketball for a couple weeks, it must not be too bad. Whew! Happy healing!

Nice cast! (but who's the Liz who signs with a heart???!!!)

Hope he heals fast!

Here is hoping it heals fast and well. I made it through those years unscathed and then they took up motorbikes. Sigh.

What is growing up without a broken bone or two?
