Two Parents-Five Kids
By Melinda Goertz
Broken bones, Christmas shopping, electrical outage and an earthquake!
On Monday, December 9, the Jr. Runner boys played basketball at Anthony. We went to cheer Hunter on. Shortly before half time he gets hit in the hand. He shook it off and continued to play. After half time he came out of the locker room with his fingers taped. Everyone, including him assumed that he just jammed his fingers. He played the rest of the game with no complaints. We took him home and looked him over. There was no swelling or bruising. Tuesday he woke up and went on with his day, he even went to basketball practice that afternoon. By the time he got home that evening, his hand was very swollen and bruised. Wednesday morning I decided to take him to his doctor. He confirmed Hunter’s worst fear, two broken bones in his right hand. Hunter now has a hard cast and is out of basketball for the season. He is not a happy camper.
Over the weekend Matthew and I went Christmas shopping, not only for the children but the rest of our family and friends as well. I think it is harder and harder each year to shop...
