Anyway... Cody has a scout camp coming up this month and they are going to go snowboarding. Cody and his dad went out last month and found the perfect snowboard and goggles for the occasion. Friday I took him out to get him his snowboarding boots, he couldn't wait to get on a hill. Cody has never been on a snowboard before and so he wanted to give it some practice runs before the big scout adventure. Saturday morning came and he and his friend decided that it was the perfect day to try out the new snowboard. Do I really need to say more????
Cody went down the hill in our old neighborhood with two successful rides but on the third time down he fell. All I can say is that it's a good thing his dad stayed there to watch his boy because once Cody was down he didn't get up. After a short visit to the Insta-care, it was determined that Cody broke his left wrist with a compression fracture.
I must admit, I am a horrible mother. Here we are at the doctors, Cody is laying on the examination table with an ice pack on his wrist and the nurse is being so gentle and attentive to my injured son when the doctor comes in with the news that it is broken. Being the loving, caring mother that I am, I bust up laughing. See.... I'm a horrible mother!! I hurt for my son and I feel so bad that he got hurt but for some reason it still makes me laugh. I'm sure that if it had been a serious break I would have felt horrible for him but it wasn't bad enough for even a cast. He will have to wear a brace on his arm all day, every day for the next 4 weeks but he will be just fine.
Needless to say, Cody will not get to go with the boys on their scout snowboarding trip.
