Broken Radius

My poor son Matthew fell of off his bike yesterday and broke his left arm. The radius to be exact. He is devasted as he has been intensely training for the weapons and sparring aspect of our upcoming tournament He has been in some pain while we await the swelling to go down so that his permanent cast can be placed later this week.

I tried to console him with the fact that he is still number 1! He is the first child to break a bone in the family. Hey, 6 kids, 18 years - 3 months and only one broken bone!! That's pretty good odds in my book! Of course JP has taken the cake on glass eating and 2nd - 3rd degree burns, and let's not forget the ol' hole in the heart! But broken bones... Matthew got the first place medal on that one.
