Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

He got the boot

This is NOT a text you want to receive from the person watching your children: "Finn jumped off a high thing at the park and hurt his left foot. I won't be able to get him home." Jim and I had been out running errands, so we rushed to the park and drove Finn home. We couldn't tell if it was really bad (i.e. possibly broken) or if Finn was being "Finn" and making a mountain out of a mole hill. But at the end of the day (and because we had our walk the next morning), we decided to take him to Urgent Care. I'd rather know one way or the other.

Who knew they have little mini wheelchairs! So cute.

So thankful mom was here to watch the Littles and also thankful that Buffalo Urgent Care was empty when we got there. I guess the time to go to Urgent Care is right before they close on a Friday night!

They were able to assess that Finn's pain was on top of his foot and decided to x-rays. And of course the x-rays were inconclusive. Argh. There were three spots in the same area that he had pain that COULD have been broken but the radiologist wasn't on call until the weekend. SO...they put him in an air cast and fitted him for crutches.

For the March for Babies walk, he fit in our double stroller, so we brought that and Jim pushed the boys in that. It actually worked really well and I'm so happy we still have it! (I think Korri wished we had a triple stroller!)

After the walk, the radiologist called and said it was NOT broken! Yeah! I'm so thankful for that. Now we just need to give it a little time to heal. School on Monday should be interesting!!

Henry did the exact same thing at preschool late Wednesday...foot ankle..ER at Children's ,not broken either. He was just at Children's for some stiches above his eye. Laura laughed out loud telling me he told the kids in the waiting room. They have two kinds of popsicles here..Orange and red..just ask the nurse for one. I'm glad the boys aren't spending the summer in casts.
