Project 365 and Diary Update 2014 – Week 13

Well the week started off in fine fashion last Sunday (not) when I spent a couple of hours in A & E with Teen, who managed to brake his wrist playing rugby.

It was horrible. I knew something wasn’t quite right roughly half way through the game when Teen didn’t seem to be getting involved as much as he would normally.

It was the first proper match Teen had played for the ‘A’ team. He joined the rugby club a few weeks ago, as I’ve mentioned before, and was put straight into the ‘B’ team. He was chuffed with this as some of the kids who train there don’t necessarily get picked to play in any matches at all, or at least the new ones have to wait until someone left, or they go on as sub, so he felt great to be part of the team already.

But within a few weeks he’d been called up to the ‘A’ team as they needed someone fast and he fit the bill! He was called up at the last minute last week because someone couldn’t make it and he had a fantastic game scoring a couple of tries. Then I got the call during the week to say the A team had been looking for someone fast and they’d like Teen to join them!

He was so happy.

It was freezing last Sunday, a complete contrast to the Sunday before when we enjoyed glorious sunshine and warmth on the touchline. I had my hat and gloves on this time lol, getting rain thrashed and blown all over the place. Not great but Teen was raring to go!

He finished the game but was in agony when he came off. He’s one of those kids that has injury after injury so he knows when something isn’t right. He guessed it was broken so I thought I wouldn’t wait and took him straight to A & E.

Day - And here it is. This was taken at the hospital, the swelling was happening before our very eyes... it was huge!

Day 82 – And here it is. This was taken at the hospital, the swelling was happening before our very eyes… bless my poor baby! It was confirmed. Broken.

The rest of the week passed by in a quieter fashion, thank god!

Day 89 - We were playing with the Pop Chef food cutting toy!

Day 83 – We were playing with the Pop Chef food cutting toy that we were sent for review…(coming shortly)!

Day 85 - Teen is feeling very sorry for himself and in a lot of pain. Because of the swelling the hospital said they couldn't cast the wrist for a day or two, but then they had no appointment until a week on Tuesday. Disgusting I think.

Day 84 – Teen is feeling very sorry for himself and in a lot of pain. Because of the swelling the hospital said they couldn’t cast the wrist for a day or two, but then they had no appointment until a week on Tuesday. Disgusting I think. This splint meant that in actual fact, Teen was still using that hand more than he should’ve been and probably causing  more damage!

Day - Didn't take any pics on this day so quickly grabbed a cheeky shot of H before bedtime :)

Day 85 – Didn’t take any pics on this day so quickly grabbed a cheeky shot of H before bedtime, he was drinking my water here 🙂

Day 86 – On Thursday we had a trip to Pets at Home to grab our rabbit some food and my Girl was going gaga over this little tiny hamster! He was incredibly cute here, drinking

We also had a careers fair at Teens School on Thursday which was hugely beneficial for him, and me for that matter. Lots of businesses across a wide spectrum exhibiting, informing the kids from year 10 upwards on what qualifications they might need or what steps they can take to find a way into that job. Extremely useful and a real eye opener. Children from all over this area were invited to come along.

Day 8 - Teen was in a huge amount of pain so I called the Fracture Clinic at the hospital to see if we could bring forward his appointment. They said no, but if we were concerned, to take him to A & E. So I did. They faffed around for hours, as usual, before putting this temporary cast on, which is very heavy but at least his wrist is stable now. Next week they will change it for the lighter weight fibre glass cast.

Day 87 – Teen was in a huge amount of pain on Friday morning so I called the Fracture Clinic at the hospital to see if we could bring forward his appointment. They said no, but if we were concerned, to take him to A & E. So I did. They faffed around for hours, as usual, taking more X-rays, before putting this temporary cast on, which is very heavy but at least his wrist is stable now and I can stop worrying so much. Next week they will change it for the lighter weight fibre glass cast.

Day - We were in the park nice and early yesterday morning (Saturday) as my daughter has gymnastics at 10. The twins and I made the most of the gorgeous weather and from this little gap in the trees we could see these horses in the field down the hill

Day 88 – We were in the park nice and early yesterday morning (Saturday) as my daughter has gymnastics at 10am so the twins and I made the most of the gorgeous weather. This particular park is situated at the top of a hill and from this little gap in the trees we could see these horses in the field below.

So that’s it. Hope you all had a great week and have a wonderful Mothers Day today x
