Last year on the day before Thanksgiving I dislocated my kneecap (and then Alex had his second hernia surgery).
Exactly two years ago today I posted about Johnny’s most recent back episode flare up. For some strange reason, we felt like THIS was our year to have a nice happy, healthy, peaceful Thanksgiving!
But man, we should have learned our lesson…
This morning Johnny moved wrong and ended up in intense pain on the floor. I knew immediately by the tone of his yell what had happened.
We initially thought it wasn’t too bad so we made an appointment with a doctor and called my friend Heather to watch the kids. (oh Heather… thank you, thank you…)
As I tried to get Johnny up to go, I quickly realized that our plan wasn’t going to work and I needed to call 911.
Five firemen had to haul him down the stairs strapped to a chair. I’ve never seen him in so much pain and it was heartbreaking!
In the ER they pumped him full of drugs and sent us home.
Wednesday he gets to see the spine specialist and we hope that it will be a quick recovery. Hope!
Happy Thanksgiving Folks!!
