what a way to start the weekend...

I finished work early today YAY... and popped into my mum's for a cup of tea before having to pick Cam up from daycare. Paris calls me on my cell phone at 3.25 in hysterics, because she couldn't find Josh anywhere - he wasn't at school, or at home... I got her to calm down, and left mums in a big rush to collect Cam and head home to find Josh


at 3.35 another call from hom eon my cell, this time its the school secretary {in my messy kitchen} calling to say that Josh had injured himself at school 2 mins before the bell rang, and that he couldn't weight bear on his foot at all... they had called Ian, and he had asked them to call me, but they were calling the home phone not my cell, and the kids aren't allowed to answer the home phone if I'm not there, so Paris left it to ring out...

So I race home after picking up Cam, load Josh and Paris into the car and head off to the local A&E... they give him pain relief and send us off for x-rays, as their x-ray technician had finished for the day, so we had to go somewhere else, then back to the A&E for a looksie at the x-rays...

Josh has broken his growth plate in his foot {which is a major} and is currently in a moon boot. We have to take him back to A&E tomorrow to have boot adjusted, then back in 10days time for appointment with orthopediac surgeon. If the bone isn't healing right in the moon boot, then surgery will be required {so a pin can be inserted}...

oh how I hope the moon boot does what it should

fingers crossed he won't need surgery! Pretty poor form of the school not using your cell first anyway - they would have known there was a chance you'd be working and not at home and even if they tried calling home and got no answer then to ring your cell straight away - poor Paris! I can only imagine what she must have felt after the hoohaa the other weekend.
