Broken Wing


Some of you know that we have been vacationing in the Pacific Northwest after Ironman CdA. We picked Orcas Island because it has one of the best skate parks in the region, but skateboarding, like much that is worth doing, has its risks. 'Pounce was dropping into the bowl, missed her balance, and bwoke her widdow arm right near the wrist.

And the next day we went shopping to replace the helmet that had saved her from a head injury so that she'd be ready to go again when she healed. 'Cause that's how we roll.

I heard all about this on the 4th at Tb's and Trimama's house.
Pounce and I have the same broken side (mine is scapula and clavicle though)
Happy healing Pounce, remember that the bone is stronger at the break after it heals than before the break.
And you will be stronger too!

You will heal FAST because you are young and active !
(I am sure it hurt like the dickens though!)
Feel better soon!

(I am sure you will want to be back on that board sooner than your mom and dad WANT you to!) :-)

Dang!

That means Pounce will not be able to participate in my Kiwanis Kids Triathlon that I am running this weekend.

Heal fast!

WOW! glad she's okay!

and orcas island is... interesting. of course, when we went there for a wedding, we ended up camping on a gravel pit. so my opinion may be a little biased. i've heard the rest of the island is pretty awesome.
