Judah's Tale: First Cast

While we are here on Hvar, we got news from Tyler and Lara about what's happening in their family back home in Ostrava.

Yes, this just happened!

Judah jumped off some play equipment yesterday and broke his foot. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ ๐Ÿ˜ชSo he's now in a cast for at least a month.

But they said he's been so brave! Judah himself sent me a video explaining what had happened to him, which I won't put in here, but will give some highlights!

"I was jumping off the dyno and I broke my little bone in my foot. I needed to go to the hospital and get...what did I get dad?...oh yeah, a cast. And they gave me toys! They also gave me a girl smurf too. I came home and I ate dinner but Asher already ate and after we ate, we got ice cream!"

When Tyler asked him if there was anything else he wanted to tell me he proudly said, "Kids don't have to have scabs!" Tyler gently corrected him saying, "Crutches", to which he quickly repeated his previous sentence saying, "Kids don't have to get crutches!"

But he then went on to say, "I'll have it for a week and then they're going to put a lighter scab on me!"

Scab...a multi purpose word! ๐Ÿ˜‚

The hope is that he will get a lighter cast eventually, and then a boot to be able to walk around in.

Although I've never had a broken bone, every one of my kids broke a bone sometime in their childhood, and lived to tell a tale about it! This will be Judah's tale to tell someday. ๐Ÿ˜
