Breaking News






Well three breaks actually, all in the same area.

I just got back from the hospital. My son got a sports-related injury at college yesterday (if the bouncy castle at a college fun day counts as sports-related). Turns out he broke his ankle. The doctor put a three-sided splint/cast thingy on him. He has to go back in about a week to get a proper cast, after which it's five more weeks on crutches. 

Other than that, we're having a great weekend.

How about you?

*hugs* for your son. Although hey - bouncy castles are fun! That should make a great story later, but I hope he makes it through the crutches and everything okay.

Ouch, I wish him swift and total recovery.

Uneventful weekend, unless you count bingeing on Babylon 5 episodes. :P

On the plus side, it's comedy gold as far as ribbing him about it's concerned ;)
