Broken...

Well, it has been a while since I've posted anything! I only have a minute now, so this won't be very long.

Travis (5 yrs) broke his arm on Saturday. He was playing outside next to our brooder, fell and broke both bones on his right forearm - the radius and ulna. Poor guy was in a lot of pain.
We took him to the emergency room and they were able to splint it a little bit. However, it's not completely set right so he is going in for surgery tomorrow morning at UVA in Charlottesville.

Please pray that the doctors will be able to get it set without having to cut it open or put pins in it. They're aiming to just put him to sleep, set the arm, cast it and send him home. That is what we are hoping for too!

Poor kid! I know how bad that can be -- my daughter broke her leg when she was five, and it was very painful.

The good news is that they heal very nicely at that age. Best wishes for a quick recovery.
