This picture is disturbing but this is what happened to my son yesterday. He walked out and said he was going to play ball, I started to tell him don't go but they all think I watch too much news and that I am a hoover mother. For those of you who don't know what that is, that is a mom who doesn't let go of her kids. I just want them to be aware of how fragile the human body is and that they have sometimes chill at home and be bored sometimes. I mean, we used to happy playing rock teacher, red light, green light or red rover, red rover now if they are sitting still they are bored.

The story unfolded by our son running on porch with such urgency and bursting into the house & tripping over himself. With such a dramatic entrance, I thought someone hurt him for his iphone or shot him or something. He yelled I broke my arm, he was in so much pain and i wasn't there with him, his dad rushed out the house taking charge & he is not good in these situations. He walked out bbq sauce on his clothes, a tank top, no wallet, no phone, no insurance card. I had to run it out to him. Normally I am the one who goes with the kids to the hospital cause I am the leveled headed one. Well after they heavily sedated him, the pulled his arm and elbow slide back into the socket. It was such a painful for him waiting but they got him some serious anesthesia and he was out. He was incoherent almost. The orderly who helped him out to my car was a joke! He let him get out of the wheel chair on his own. I mean, if he had feel I would've sued him personally! Anyway, he was sent home with some more dramatic drugs & slept most of the night. I stayed home from church with him to wait on him so more. He finally got up too a shower and went to his girlfriends so she could drive him to Champagne. I told him no but he wasn't listening to me. This is my oldest son who is 20years. Is it illegal to sit on your kids to make them take a say to try to heal? lol I am just too through, so he is going to pay the $250 emergency room visit and the $300 orthopedic specialist fee as well. Am I wrong for that? What about my pain and suffering and worry....

Didn't get much of a workout except cleaning and washing cause Hubs goes out tomorrow....

God bless & thanks for letting my whine like a little baby!!!

    sweetie I am sorry! I hope he heals up. Kids at a certain age can not be told nothing. They know it all already. LOL! We as parents want to hold them so they do not get stump toe and get hurt. When he pays the high bill maybe he will think next time...hopefully. emoticon

    Well Dee I probably would have reacted the same way. They don't want to listen. My son is 23 and he got "sick" earlier this summer and he NEVER gets sick but he kept doing his normal hanging out stuff. He just had a very bad case of eczema with a bit of MALNUTRITION. I almost cried. But that was NOT my fault.

    emoticon Remember when you were their age? We were GROWN. Couldn't tell us nothing. We had to pray plead The Blood of Jesus and LET God take care of them. We've done our part.

    On a lighter side Yes it's fine for him to pay those charges but JESUS PAID IT ALL. He's our Shepherd and we have EVERYTHING we need. We have to TRUST Him that He's Speaking to our children as well.

    I've learned STAY CALM! It's OK!
    Love you sis!

    There's nothing worse than having our kids (at any age) get hurt. We tend to pay for our son's medical expenses, but only because he can't afford doctor visits and medication and we want him to see his doctor and take his meds!

    WOW! Sorry to hear about that! Gotta hurt. But he is in the grown-up world now and Mom and Dad can't fix everything for him. (I have a 27-year-old who straddles that fence!)

    Sending love and positive vibes to him. emoticon

    I don't think it is wrong to let people pay for the consequences of their behavior since it is part of life. I am glad it was not very serious and he is healing and doing well. I remember being 20 and feeling invincible too. I hope your day goes well and God bless you both.
    Love, Chelsea emoticon

    OH, so sorry your son had this accident! But thank God it wasn't worse. And thank God he has YOU to keep things organized in such crises! emoticon You will get back to your workouts, I have no doubt, & maybe you'll have some extra energy from all that adrenaline!

    I think most parents nowadays do & pay too much for their kids. It's good for our young adult kids to have responsibility for their own expenses, as much as possible. You're not a bad mom for requiring it! Quite the contrary.

    If only he had listened. Welp, like you said, he's a grown man so he has to live with the consequences (and bills) of his own actions. He'll learn on his own & be grateful and appreciative to have a mother like you. Wishing your son a speedy recovery and you a rapid rebound from your pain, suffering and worry. emoticon emoticon

    So sorry he was injured! At 20 he is an adult and I agree he should pay for the bills.
