What awesome news that Rory is all clear.
Well myself and the family have had a bit of a hectic few days this week to the doctors. Tuesday 16th Nov Brandon came home from school saying that he thinks he has a broken his toes after jumping over a gym mat in the hall and landing awkardly. I agreed cause his foot looked liked a puffed balloon. Then Harley tells me he nose has a sore on it and has been like that for about a week( I haven't seen this one for days as he has been in town) and that he had a rash on his arm. I decided there and then to check out the rest of my kids in case something was wrong with them but they were algud-thank goodness!!. Then there was myself, Sunday 14th  i did a bit of heavy lifting and heard a crack from my wrist, it was sore at the time and it did swell but i thought i would get over it and just let it go.
So Wednesday it was three of us heading to the doctors, First up was Harley- found out he needed medication for the nose and arm, next was me and i needed an x-ray and same for Brandon. After our x-rays the doctor informed me that brandon had fractured his 2nd toe and broken his 3rd and 4th toe to which we had to go to Whangarei hospital for an operation on his toes and my results was a slight fracture to my wrist. So off to Whangarei we went for the next few days. Brandon did'nt need any surgery after all and is now in a lovely light green cast for the next six weeks which means no swimming and possibly still in his cast for his birthcay next month.As for me it will be taking it easy for the next week and Harley will be on medication for the next 2weeks.
What a trip to the doctors aye Guys!!!
Lots of luv
