Big Liltle Accident


My lil buckaroo had a little accident yesterday that makes me worried big time. Few days ago he broke the fence we put down the stairs to block him and keep him from going upstairs. Since it was already broken he'd been going up and down the stairs whenever he likes to play upstairs. He plays with Justine once in a while but most of the time he chooses to play on his own upstairs while the little girl left behind trying hard to learn how to climb the stairs. In the morning he gets up very early and come down stairs with out me knowing. That is why I had to get up as early as I could even though I hate it and that makes me crabby and bitchy. Anyhow, the other day he was upstairs the whole afternoon, Joedub came home early because he was sick and I was looking after Justine at the same time in front of the PC. He was sleeping, Jake was upstairs when all of a sudden I heard a big Bang. His cry was not as loud compared to any other kids. He was in pain because it was super heavy glass table that fell in his leg and foot.

This is the glass table that fell on his leg mostly hit the foot. I don't know how he managed to pull his foot when this thing fell as it was super heavy. I can't even lift this thick glass. We put this table upstairs when we had the Christmas tree. Joe just place the glass leaning in the side of the bookshelves instead of putting it on the floor. So, I guess Jake was reaching something on the bookshelves when he knocked this thing over. So, when I heard him crying in pain I went and run upstairs. He was there standing with one leg up and didn't want to walk. Until now he refuses to walk because it hurts when he put some weight on it. I told Joe to take him to the hospital and have it x-ray so we can see any damages in his leg especially the foot. He is not feeling well and he doesn't want to spend long hours of waiting in the children hospital so instead he called the Pediatrician and took Jake this morning. The doctor said if Jake still not walking in two days, we should take them to the hospital for x-ray.

This is another reason why I prefer to live in the Philippines because cases like this I don't mind waiting in a hospital just to make sure that my son is alright. I don't know how to drive so I have to depend on him to drive us to the hospital. If I'm in the Philippines I don't have to wait or beg or ask or bother him to take us to the hospital or anywhere we want. If there is an award for being such a complainer husband I think Joe would be the first honor.

I really hope and pray that Jake will be alright especially his feet. It breaks my heart watching him crawling again or moving by knees. Sometimes we can't just trust our kids to run around no matter how safe we think our house is.

It was an accident that was waiting to happen like the proverbial sword of Damocles. The heavy mirror was left hanging on the wall instead of lying on the floor. A little hindsight could have prevented this accident from happening. Your little boy is always very susceptible to accidents. Ilang beses na siyang nasusugatan o naaaksidente. I will pray that his foot is not badly damaged. By the stripes of Jesus, Jake is healed. Yung litrato ni Justine na gumagapang paakyat nang hagdan ay nakakatakot din. Baka mahulog ang baby. Buti na lang carpeted yung stairs nyo at makapit ang traction. Medyo immature nga yung hubby mo sa maraming bagay na mismong anak ay hindi niya maipagmaneho para mapa xray. Let us just pray for his transformation. Thanks for the scary post. God bless you all always.

I hope Jake is ok, yan ding li'l princess mo, baka kaka blog mo,di mo namalayan,nakaakyat na pala, lol!
Grabeh talaga likot ng mga bata ano, lalo na pag boys, feeling invicible, akala hindi sila masasaktan,kung pwede lang sana itali para manahimik sa isang lugar.Mabuti at hindi nabasag yung salamin kay Jake at baka mas worst pa ang inabot nya.

Minsan pag palaging nakaharap sa pc,di mo na mapapansin ang mga kalikutan ng mga bata.At because they're at that age,dapat all eyes ka na sa kanila to prevent accidents.
