Hump Day

Here it is Jakes broken Clavicle.

Broken bone number one from motor bike riding.

It happened Sunday at ST Arnaud around 11am. We took him to the local hospital but they do not have x-ray facilities on a Sunday so they started making arrangements to transfer him to Ballarat or Bendigo. I asked the DR if we could strap him up and fill him with pain meds and get him home to Melbourne and he said yes. So thats what we did.

The car trip home was a nightmare to say the least. I ended up sitting in the back with Jake and he slept on me most of the way home. BUT the bikes kept moving in the trailer cause we couldn't tie Jakes down properly and then the rain started.... We managed to get home ok and I took Jake straight from my car to Col's car and to the hospital. It had been 4 hours since the last lot of pain medication and he was really starting to feel pain. The Dr's here gave him more drugs and x-rays and confirmed the first DR's diagnosis. He is now in a devise to stop his arm moving at all and has to have x-rays every 2 or 3 days to make sure this is all healing ok. We did end up back at the Hospital Monday morning as the bones had moved and Jake was crying in pain.

Apart from that the weekend was great we had a ball. Jake loves his bike and can not wait to heal and get back on for another go.

The Bike company have shipped all the parts to fix the bike and are covering all costs as it was the bikes fault this happened.

Ok off to help the invalid shower....
