SNOW and other tidbits

The sun was shortlived... There is now a small sprinkling of snow on our lawn. It is wet and sloppy, thank goodness. Wet and sloppy usually means it won't last long. Thankfully we geared up J on Friday with his new MEC snowsuit. With talk of a cold and snowy winter this year, we went big for the warmth.

Nephew J2 was over last night, and yet again we were together when an incident occured that lead him to Emerg. None of us know exactly what happened, he was all alone in the hallway and went running to Dad to say his arm hurt. He did his usual screaming that we all thought was a bunch of nothing, until it continued for 15 minutes straight. He kept grabbing his arm, scratching his elbow, then his wrist. He started falling asleep (it was bedtime) but, would wake up crying again. We all assessed the situation, put his sister to bed in the playpen and off they went to CHEO. Four hours later they returned with a diagnosis of a dislocated ligament in his elbow. Unfortunately the doctor could not relocate it and they may have to return today if it doesn't reset itself. There is nothing they can do but wait and hope it snaps back into place. The Doctor did say that is usually occurs when the arm is pulled on, but he was by himself in the hallway so we aren't sure at all if he hit his arm on the wall or what. Hopefully today all is well and there will be no return to the hospital.

We are more than halfway through our visit with Opa, lots of fun is being had, rest for me and memories made.

Snow?!? I want that parka for my kids! It looks so warm and toasty! And the price isn't that bad as well.

And I am cringing thinking of J2's arm. Hope he doesn't have to go back...
