Jack's BIG booboo....

Friday I was working with Mom and she warned me not to stand on the big play blocks but I didn't listen. I fell 12 inches and I broke my femur!!! I fell funny on my right leg and it broke. First we went to my Dr's office where they took x-rays and saw it was broken. I had to go and see another Dr and he met us at the ER where he put my cast on. Aunt Becky and my pediatrician, cousin Erika, and her son Max met Mom and me at the ER. Mom was really happy they were there b/c Dad couldn't make to the hospital. He was very sad he couldn't be there. Max was way cool because he brought me trains to play with! Thanks Max! All the Dr's and nurses were really nice. I had to have an IV so they could put medicine into me. The medicine made me feel really silly!! I still cried when they moved my leg to put my cast on but the Dr said I was his best patient ever. Mom was so proud of me. I even held perfectly still for all my x-rays. I will be in my cast for 3-4 weeks. We have to go and meet the Dr. on Monday so he can check my cast and Mom said we should know more then. For now all I can do is either lay down with a pillow under my leg or sit in my stroller. I have a feeling I will be spending alot of time in my stroller. I am Aunt Becky's ring bearer in 4 weeks so Mom said we will decorate the wagon and cousin Lydia can pull me down the isle. Sorry Aunt Becky that I can't walk down the isle and I will miss dancing with you! Here are some of the photos from the ER yesterday.
