Hans was hurt...

So I know this isn't the best way to tell everyone, and HANS IS OKAY.  Before I go any further I need to tell you that.  But this afternoon, down at the neighborhood park, he fell off a swing onto his back.  He apparently wasn't swinging hard, but he slipped off and hit his upper back area.  I got the call from Josh, and when I got there he had crawled away from the swing and was laying on the cold ground in the dirt and mud.  Not moving.  It was a horrifying sight.  I took Josh's coat and covered him, held his head in place and called 911.  They were there in about a minute - they were right around the corner.  (God was watching out for us.  Thank you, God!)  They boarded and collared him, so he couldn't move, and then took us by ambulance to Crozer Hospital.  I know how horrible and painful the collar and board are (jump injury in the 82D), but after a couple of hours, visits with nurses and Dr. Ward, everything was deemed in its' place.  He's getting ice for the next day or two, and taking Ibuprofen for the pain.  Which should mostly be soreness and possible bruising.

I'm sorry I didn't call, for those of you who feel you warrant one (and there are quite a few), but I couldn't talk about it.  Not yet.  That was a terrifying experience, and I get too upset if I'm talking about it.  So, after Melissa's incident the other day, this makes two.  What's the wives tale about "things come in threes"?  I hope not.  That seems a little silly, but it's all too often right.  So Katie and Eric, tell your kids to be more careful!

Love all...
