Badge of Honor

So Elijah earned a badge of honor today....

The first Dafoe boy to break a bone...AND be casted.

(sorry about the poor picture...its from my phone and
 it's not as nice as someone else's phone in our family :0)


We went to the Orthopedic Dr this am and was hoping to leave with some fancy boots he could wear that would limit weight bearing so he could still walk, but instead his Right foot/leg was casted to just below his knee.  His left foot has a broken bone above the ankle, but the Dr was okay with leaving that foot/leg as it already seems to be healing since he has been walking on that foot.

He did very well and was a little bit in shock until we were waiting to rent a wheelchair and then the tears started flowing.  Poor guy!  He was quite devastated that he couldn't walk.

Don't blame him, and I got a bit teary just watching him.

We stopped at blockbuster on the way home and Scooby Doo, Alvin & the Chipmunks, and the X-men have been helping him relax on the couch all afternoon...

Thanks for all the prayers, texts and phone calls!

We have an appointment in 2 weeks and we are praying it will be healed by then, but if not we will have it re-casted and wait a bit longer.

So until then we are laying low....and staying off the roof!
