OMG! You do seem to have everything happening to you at once! Sounds like you're all handling it well. No I haven't seen the FB pic, but I didn't do a friend request for Ringo. LOL. I barely check FB as it is, I would've missed it anyway.

Mo told me to go look at his FB page, didn't tell me why. Of course this was as I just got home from dinner.

Payback's a bitch!

On a more serious note, I hope he's feeling better soon and kudos to him for being so calm in a bad situation!

Your son's amazing. I agree with the paramedic and his friends. I had a tiny crack in my ankle eons ago and thought I was dying, but your son acts like a broken arm happens every day. And calmly calling you for a ride to the doctor? I'd have been calling 911!!!

It was a great picture! Ow ow ow! But I was well inebriated when I saw it last night, so sober, I might not be quite as fascinated by the peculiar angle of his arm.

Here's hoping for a quick recovery.

That's a tough kid...hope the healing goes quickly (for your sake, as well as his, lol!)

LOL! I think you must be right about the end of summer thing. What a way to finish it off, though!

I am one who gets sympathy pains just from verbal description. So, thank you for no photos.

May you both rest easy.

Okay, for those of us not on facebook, you have to add the details of how he broke it. The comment "I think he broke his wrist" is priceless of course.

My family tends towards the heavy bone / thick wrist football tackle body build and almost never break stuff. I'm out of the hospital from the bleeding incident. I like the world, but after that I have to agree with my mom; if I can help it, I ain't dying in a hospital.

Thank you for sparing us from any photos. After a broken arm (bent at a 45 degree angle) and a broken ankle, and being a total wuss to the pain as opposed to your son, I don't need any reminders on how excruciatingly painful broken bones are.

The (short version) bleeding story: Apparently I split my esophagus while retching. (Don't try this at home.) From there the story becomes gross.

Posted by Carl Brannen at August 14, 2010 09:52 PM

Carl- That is just terrible! I'm not going to try this at home...

Oh man! But I guess it's a right of passage for all teens, though I fractured my wrist a little young - aged 8.

Hope he's still doing OK.
