I'll take 2 pins with that broken arm
Carter broke his arm a couple of weeks ago. He was playing on the monkey bar glider...the little thing you hold on to and you 'slide' across to the other side. Well, it hit the other side and Carter let go and flipped a bit and landed on his arm and broke it right above the elbow. Brodi knew it was broken right away. I was a bit more dense and it took a bit of convincing. We took a quick trip to InstaCare and they x-rayed it and gave us the bad news and sent us up to Primary Childrens for the night. Carter had surgery the next morning.
He now has two good looking pins in his arm to help with the healing process. He plays for Impact Academy, so he has had to miss some practices (they have practice twice a week, for 1.5 hours each practice), but he wasn't going to miss his first game. We had to bubble wrap his arm up to protect the other team from getting hurt by his cast...Carter had a good laugh at that, 'I'm the one with the broken arm and they are worried about getting hurt?' He gets his cast off in a couple of weeks.
