And Here We Go Again...


Right, Sam? 


Yes, Sam formerly known as the boy who broke his left leg twice and had to have the pins removed this summer ... sooner rather than later ... fell and also broke his right arm just above the wrist yesterday. He is in surgery this morning as I write this. The pins in the leg are being removed and then the arm gets properly set. It's a two-fer. We'd appreciate all prayers on his behalf and most especially that he does not break any more bones. His poor parents may be ready to turn him into a bubble boy. As his grandmother, I'm highly tempted.

Gosh, I'm just looking at Jake in the background and it appears that he's being held together with bandaids. Boys!


Love Vee

  1. Bless his heart! Praying for Sam right now, that all will go well and smooth, and for this little fearless wonder to be protected from future breaks. It's for sure that boys will be boys isn't it? :)

  4. Vee they are so darn cute and yes boys will be boys. We had 2 boys, 1 have numerous broken bones, 1 was allergic to bees and was always messing around them. We had 4 girls 1 had a few broken bones the other three were little miss fixits since they were always breaking something around the house. They just are normal kids. Praying for good results with Sam's ortho procedures. Gotta love those grands.

  5. Having been a mother of two girls, I am amazed how much rougher little boys are after having my grandson here for two weeks. They show no fear sometimes! Keeping Sam (his parents and grandparents) in my thoughts and prayers this morning as he goes through this procedure. XOXO

  6. Poor little thing!! (OK, do not tell him that I said that. I'm sure that comment would get the "yech" factor, sort of like kissing a kissy face aunt.
    But still, poor little thing.

    Poor grandma too.
    I avoided all of that by never having a son, but if I'm ever blessed to have a boy of the grandson variety, I'll close my eyes and take it just like you. I can join you in praying for this bubble boy!

    (They are cute, btw. Don't tell them that either.)

  7. Oh no...sorry to hear this! Will pray for ALL of you! As the mother of 3 sons I know just how "wild" it can be. Melody was such a cake walk in comparison. Praying the Lord will protect him from further breaks as well...and provide mama and grandma with some much needed peace!

  8. Oh good grief!

    Oh I am so sorry! This is getting ridiculous. I know, life-with-boys can be interrrrrrresting. I had 2 boys myself. But... Not only he, but the whole family, must be getting a wee bit tired of this repeating saga.

    Dare I say, that *they say* that bad things come in 3's... And 2 leg breaks and 1 arm break, makes 3. -sighhhhhhhhhh-

    Hugs all round,
    "Auntie"

  9. Aww, poor Sam! That's terrible. What a way to have to spend the summer after spending the spring in a cast! Praying for the little dear. Thanks for your Canada Day tribute yesterday. That was beautiful! We had an awesome day here. Post coming up soon. Hugs to you. Pam

  11. Oh my goodness. Poor Sam! Poor You! Poor Parents!
    Happy doctors.....$$.
    Praying that this is the last of the broken bones and that this one heals well.

  12. Oh no! I hope Sam is okay, lots of prayers are being said. I did have to chuckle about the comment about Jake, he looked like my boys when they were small.

  13. Prayers being lifted! Goodness, I think they call him accident prone, don't they? I'm with you and his parents...time for a bubble. Please keep us updated on how he's doing (and you and his parents).

  14. Oh NO! Poor Sam! Kyle and I will see if we can find him something fun! How frustrating for him!

  15. Oh, dear! I hope he is on the mend soon! He must have energy to spare, and his parents ought to buy him bubble wrap clothes! BTW, I love your new header. I meant to say that in my earlier comments. Have you noticed that I am trying to catch up on you blog this morning, LOL?

  16. Well, God bless him....poor fella. I have a boy (grown, of course...) and when he was in high school, rode bulls and broke his arm 2 times and a leg, once. My girl....never a broken bone.:)
    I join you in prayer that all goes well with Sam.

  17. Oh boy for sure! I do hope and pray everything goes very smoothly for him. I wished for a padded room several times when my 3 were growing up but that's a whole different story...

  18. Oh Sam...broken bones are for winter, not summer! Praying for your whole tribe!

  19. Poor Sam! Poor Sam's family! Your grandsons look adorable, but I can see they are pure boy. Keeping all of you in my prayers. dear Vee.

  20. Oh my, poor Sam. He looks like he has a great sense of humor, just from his expression on his face in this photo. I'm so sorry he has to go through this again -- at least he gets two for the price of one. If it's his writing hand, maybe it will save him from missing school. Lots of grand mothering ahead? Prayers this morning ....

  21. Oh my goodness...poor baby! (Don't tell him I called him a baby.)

    My grandson Owen is the only one who has broken a bone...but he managed to break his arm twice...once before he was two years old! Some kids just have all the luck.

    I will be praying for Sam today...and for all of you!

  26. My grandsons are proud when they have to wear a bandaid. Praying for Sam, and my ladies Bible Study did as well this morning. I was able to show this picture to them, nice to have a visual. I think all boys should wear a mandatory layer of bubble wrap under their clothing until they are...., well I can't put a cap on that age. ~ Abby

  29. Praying that all goes well.
    My sister's 3 yr old granddaughter has recently broken the same arm twice.

  30. OH NO!!!!!

    Praying for this poor cutie! OUCH!!

    Now I am again thankful I had two daughters and no boys - first and only broken bone was my youngest, at the age of 24. Wrist. I got lucky.

  31. Oh dear - take care of those sweet boys. When it rains it pours!

  32. Poor Sam, hope all goes well with healing. Children usually heal quickly. Boys will definitely be boys!

  33. Oh Vee,

    I am so sorry. I remember when my four year old broke her arm and had to have a pin put in. We waited for hours for the surgery in Hong Kong, and she couldn't have anything to eat or drink. My stomach was in knots the whole time.

    Wishing him a quick recovery.

  35. Oh no - poor Sam! Sending thoughts and prayers for quick healing. What sweet little guys your grands are! I can only imagine how helpless you feel right now. Gentle hugs to you all!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh no! I only have one left out of my five who hasn't broken something, but so far no repeat offenders. I'll be praying for your family.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So sorry for your sweet grandson!! Those are some pretty tough little boys! Would you believe I raised four children and only ONE trip to the ER? God was good to me! But I also go into 'When in trouble, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout!' mode! I have improved a great deal in my older age!

  38. Oh my goodness! So sorry to hear about your grandson's injury. Wishing him a very speedy recovery.

  41. Poor Sam. I'll pray - for healing and for a summer that isn't too frustrating in a cast.

  42. Oh goodness, Vee! Some little boys are just an accident waiting to happen! My Josh was that way - only it was stitches in fingers. We count the fingers that he HASN'T had sewed up! Good grief. Well, I'm glad the leg is doing well, and hope that his arm heals quickly. At least he can still get around with a broken arm... I'll keep "Bubble Boy" in my prayers! :)

    And y'all have a happy 4th! Hugs~~~

  43. So sorry to hear of another accident for Sam, Vee! Boys are so reckless at times, but my older brother 's 3 granddaughters all broke their arms this summer--one at gymnastics and two falling off playground equipment. I hope Sam heals quickly and makes a full recovery!
