Skyler, Skyler, Skyler!

This is the picture Skyler requested I post before I embarrass him! He went fishing a few weeks ago with his friend and did himself proud with this catch!So as I hinted at earlier, our youngest and boldest child is keeping us on our medical toes! As I landed in Utah December 30th, Brendon asked if I had spoken to Russell, as he was on his way to emergency with Skyler. He had hurt himself on his second outing giving snowboarding a whirl.
Well, whirl it was, as he landed on his shoulder, (this is not him) and separated the "AC joint" at his shoulder. We actually have a picture on DVD of how pretty his bone is sticking up, I tried to download it, but it won't let me. You can see the bump under his skin, looking at his shoulder under his shirt. When I looked it up on the internet, lots of pretty pictures. He is now 3 weeks into this injury, and just received a brace yesterday to immobilize his shoulder better and keep his arm from becoming too "weighty" to help the healing process.The next Skyler adventure was this morning having 4 wisdom teeth removed. I tell you! I am pretty sure that Skyler won't let me to post his post-teeth removal picture, Go figure, some 19 year olds are so touchy about such things! His face is actually quite pretty still, not alot of swelling, and applesauce and jello are on the menu for tonight! I have not ever had any wisdom teeth myself , and my other 7 kids skated by with only Jordan having 1 to remove. We must not have much wisdom…:)

Poor Skyler!! I can't believe they didn't give him a brace till today...that seems pretty late.

You are one lucky mother to only have 2 children out of 8 have wisdom teeth removed. I hope our kids get the Holmes teeth genes, that's for sure! (And, you & your family are definitely not lacking wisdom.)

Thanks for the laugh! I always love your posts.

That brace looks like the one my sister-in-law had to wear for SIX MONTHS after she had a cycling accident. Poor guy!

Injuries are never fun! I am sorry he was hurt! Your comment about wisdom cracks me up! I only had two so maybe that means I have only 1/2 the wisdom of those with two! haha :)

I meant four, I guess I just proved my point! haha :)

WOW! Poor skyler. He is a dare devil for sure! Hope he is recovering!

Poor Skyler. I feel so bad for him. He is a trooper. I can't believe he just now got his brace. That is crazy. Well I am glad he is not too swollen from getting his wisdom teeth pulled.

Ohhhh Poor Skyler. I am sure you have babied him sufficiently! I had one daredevil amongst my kids and let me tell you, I earned every single grey hair on my head! I have had two of my wisdom teeth removed, but still have two.
