a broken foot & preschool!!!

i. cant. even. three. years. old. in prek. HOW did this happen? how did he get so big? why doesn’t he even miss me when he’s there LOL. On Sept 6th 2015, Oak’s started prek. He was so excited to see his teacher “miss amanda” and play with “all his friends” that he told me he had (although he had never met any of them haha) i kept thinking this is the day weve been working up since summer started and its here. in the blink of an eye. He goes 3 days a week 3 hours a day. its perfect for me to clean house and do laundry and make supper. about a week before school started i decided it was time to take away his naps as he was still sleeping his 130-400 everyday but then he wouldn’t go to bed till 9 at night and then sleep in the next morning till 830… and that wouldn’t work as he had to be at school at 830. so now our day is up at 730, plays for 15, has breakfast, get dressed, and out the door at 820. i come home clean prep dinner, etc. and hop back to get Oak’s at 1130. its the perfect amount of time for me, and the perfect amount of time for him! his teacher, his SLP, and OT, all say he is doing wonderful. he truly is becoming the perfect little man.

In other news if you didn’t see on my Instagram, 2 days before school started, we were at a family BBQ, and oak’s got caught in the cross of a bigger dog, and he got hit, flew, fell, and broke his foot! At first i just thought it was like sprained or something less severe, but after 8 hours with alternating Tylenol and Advil we decided to go to the stollery to get it looked at. We wernt in the waiting room long however once we were put in the room we waited about 2-3 hours before the doctor came in and sent us for some x-rays. When the Dr came around after he was thrilled to tell us Oakley didn’t break his foot but he had to talk to the pediatrician on call and then he would release us. Well, i guess they chatted and looked more closely at the x-ray and it was broken or fractured as he said. it was the metatarsal bone connected to his big toe…The Dr at the time said we didn’t need a cast because of where the break was but he did tell us we needed to follow up with a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and off we went. 1 1/2 weeks later we met with this awesome peds’ specialist and she was shocked that he didn’t have a cast and shocked that the Dr. even said he didn’t need one. We tried to put a cast on and well that didn’t go as planned, he was hysterical.  I kept yelling wheres plan b wheres plan b,  as you could have guessed they didn’t have one. about 10 min goes by and she comes in with the tiniest air cast ever. we put it on and Oak’s was thrilled. ” i can walk again ” he screamed! it was so sweet. all the nurses and technicians were giggling at how cute he was. we left rebooking for 3 weeks later.  so on Sept 30th we the went back and they re x-ray’ed the foot. turns out Oak’s broke 4 bones in his foot. They didn’t show up in previous x-rays and they aren’t quite sure why but the Dr. did say its one of the weirdest breaks shes ever seen in her career. She told me like it is – “if this break happened to an adult, they would have been off work for 3 months, no walking, and multiple surgeries” HOLY CRAP! The specialist also said that although Oakley is healing great there are 2 bones with abnormalities on them, which we will keep an eye on. We have since taken his air cast off and he is walking, with a bit of a limp but that’s to be expected. We have another follow up in 6 weeks and then again in 3 months

3 stages of the break!

besides school and his broken foot, we are all doing wonderfully, and now that this is my new normal i hope to blog more often, i really love looking back and remembering all these memories and milestones oakley has had.
