Feel sorry for myself- me?

An innocent picture of the teen at the school's Midsummer Ball last night.

But if you are eagle eyed ( or not as the case maybe) you will spot he is on crutches.

On Friday, as I was settling down to my post chemotherapy sleep the phone went. Teen had sprained his ankle badly. Could I take him to urgent care to get an xray? The school nurse was concerned- it was badly swollen. Perhaps broken?

Ever had a moment when you wanted to scream and yell and shout NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

This is the second bad sprain in three weeks.
Ever feel like it's raining, it's pouring. I fancied having a tantrum. Instead, it was off to the urgent care centre and an xray. They are hoping it isn't broken but can't tell til Wednesday this week because of the swelling. He seems happy enough and isn't in pain. He is missing work experience but is getting to revise for exams next week instead ( every cloud?)....
He still got to the Midsummer Ball. He danced on crutches. As you do. It's just a question of getting on with it isn't it? Looking for the best in a challenging situation.
Onwards and upwards. It is scan and results week for me- please send prayers for a good outcome. I will post at the weekend.

ah - boys! Talk about bad timing! Poor thing - and poor The Teen too ;o)

You will be in my thoughts for the scan etc. I know this is going to be a fraught week for you, but with your attitude I am sure everything is going to be fine. Hold that thought and have a good week

Isn't he a real BOY! I am sorry for the worry and the pain, but he makes me smile.
Prayers for you...may God surround you with His love, give you peace, comfort, hope and healing wherever it's needed - in your body and Teenager's!

Sending you positive thoughts and prayers. Tell teen to go easy on whatever it is he is drinking in the pic - he doesn't want to be falling off his crutches!

Sometimes things are simply sent to take our minds off other things
