So Sunday was spent in the ER ... again. Kiddo separated his right shoulder this time. Has a lovely bone sticking up (not out thank goodness) He is in a lot of pain...at least until the meds take over. Has an appt. with the Ortho clinic this morning...with the Dr. we don't really care for.
What is sad is that we know who is really good and who is not at an Ortho clinic. Spend way too much time and money there.
This latest incident brought out the absolute worst in my kid...and although timing was probably really bad...I let him have it. Had a huge fight, a longer talk, and after lots of tears on both sides, have agreed that he needs to hit the reset button, take stock of himself, and see where he wants to go.
It breaks your heart when your child tells you he doesn't know why he is angry and doesn't even know who he is anymore.
Needless to say, we did not sleep. I haven't tracked squat in 2.5 days. I've lost weight but I'm not going to count it because I know those tiny pounds will spring back on when things level off and I'm okay with that.
Vacation may or may not happen. Either way, even if we go, it won't be what we had planned...all fun in the sun and whatnot. So while I am thankful that my son was not seriously injured, I'd be a liar if I said I was not disappointed about losing the vacay. Not to mention worried about my child's welfare both physical and mental, short-term and long-term.
Anyhoo, today he goes for an immobilzer sling for the right shoulder, then next week he can take his cast off his left wrist. I just know I am getting those sidelong glances now...they are wondering in the ER if the accidents are real and whether they should be calling child services.
Greeeeaaat. Whatever. He is 13 and has a very stubborn mindset and loves thrills. I don't know where he got that. :P Hopefully the rest of them bones will hold up.
