I'm sorry if your heart lurched when you read the title of this blog post. Rest assured, it wasn't Spencer this time which leaves the other Ewing boy, Mr. Cole.
When Cole was on the church retreat two weeks ago, he took a tumble while he was snow boarding. He came home bruised and sore but nothing out of the ordinary for him. Then on Friday night, a little wrestling with our room mates flared up the soreness. And this afternoon, he reached down to pick up his shoes and SNAP! Something popped and tears immediately sprung to his eyes.
With no clinics open on Sunday, we headed to the ER at LA Children's Hospital. After a 2 1/2 hour wait in the ER, we were pleasantly surprised with the excellent care that we received from the staff, both doctors and nurses. An x-ray revealed no broken bones and no punctured lung so we came home with a diagnosis of bruised ribs with a strained muscle and a Rx for 600 mg of Ibuprofen every 6 to 8 hours. Whew.
Of course, tomorrow Cole is filming and has to be on set at 6:00 a.m. so Starbucks will definitely be my friend. Tonight I am thankful for a good report, insurance and a comfy bed.
