It's been less than 24 hours since we saw Shane's ortho, who told us he can't fall on his butt or back for 2 weeks, and he has since fallen on his butt once and been whacked in the head with a pillow (accidentally says the culprit). I'm calling this morning to see if we can get him into a brace...or me a big bottle of valium.
** edited to add: I spoke with his dr and his fracture is high enough on his spine that a brace would need to be custom made and be like a scoliosis brace with an attachment around his neck and a plate on his front and back. I can see my 5 y/o happily putting that on, can't you? ha! The good thing is, he'd have to pretty much replicate his accident to do any significant damage so he should be ok just taking it easy...well, as easy as a 5 y/o stunt man will.
The library auto-emailed me and my summer, lounge at the beach books are in. I can't wait!
I'm amazed at how big the laundry pile gets when I miss just one day. This week I missed two days. I don't know if I'll be able to catch up...it's huge and overwhelming. Maybe we'll switch to paper clothes or join a nudist colony until I get caught up.
