Halloween 2011 and a trip to the emergency room....

I must confess...I am not a huge Halloween fan. I didn't even dress up this year. whooopsie! But guess who did...Bailey boy and Miss Uggie.

Bailey was the great pumpkin


And Uggie was a pajama mama and wore candy corn PJs



Don't they look so thrilled? :-)


And I just had to snap a photo of uggie's tiny hiney....I couldnt resist.


The doggies patiently awaited for the trick or treaters....



While I tried to capture some of the fall beauty around the neighborhood


Uggie did so well with the trick or teaters...but Bailey, not so much.
He thought every little 3 and 4 year old should be greeted with 95 pounds of love and a big ole sloppy kiss. 
He had to spend most of his halloween watching from the window.  



And for kicks and giggles we swapped the doggies halloween costumes.
As you can see, Bailey looks like he is ready for a flood in those pajamas. Uggie pulled them off so much better.


It was the first halloween the 4 of us had spent together in the new house. It felt so right. We had about 30 or 40 trick or treaters, but could only stand the chilly air for about an hour. Plus, I thought Bailey was gonna have an anxiety attack if we didn't get back in the house. That or the door was gonna be ruined from all the scratching he was doing.  My dog is so spoilt...yes i know.


After the halloween festivities, grandma here I decided to call it a night around 9pm. That is when I got a text from my parents. It said "sis, please call the house as soon as you can." Eeeek, i thought. I immediately thought something was wrong with my grandparents, however,  it was my baby brother.

My dad said "sis, your brother is on his way to the Emergency Room at UK" (university of ky hospital)
My heart stopped

My dad went on to explain that baby bro had dislocated his elbow at a late night football practice and they were unable to get his elbow back into place. He said they may have to do surgery if they can not make the proper adjustments. I never moved so fast. I jumped up, grabbed a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt, forgot my bra, and slid into a pair of boots that were by the door. I prayed the whole way to the ER that he was ok. I was so worried about him. He has been through so many injuries the last 2 years. He was just released to play last week after this ankle injury happened several weeks back.


 
Gross, I know.

I walked into the ER and asked the receptionist if he was here. She said "they are on their way...we just got report"

I was thinking in my head....REPORT?!?! Is he coming in an ambulance...i was so confused and concerned.

It was at that moment I looked back and there was lil baby bro walking into the ER with cleats, football pants and pads, and an under shirt still on from practice. He was shaking and holding his arm into place. I just wanted to cry for him.

We immediately were taken back to the room and 3 hours later 
 x-rays and a consult revealed no fracture...thank goodness. The elbow appeared to be back in place after a what was a sever dislocation.
They casted him, medicated him, and sent us on our merry way.
He saw his sport medicine doctor the next day and the doc believes there is still severe damage to ligaments, tissue, and muscles surrounding the joint that may result in surgery. 
We wont know until the swelling subsides and a MRI is conducted.
Poor guy....it just seems like he cant catch a break in the injury department.
We are praying he doesnt have to have surgery (he just had shoulder surgery last spring)

So that was my halloween....calm and unexpected all at the same time.

Hope ya'll are having a great week....tomorrow is friday!! Woot Woot

Couple things:

1) Does he always wear overalls?

2) Holidays together... "the 4 of us"... in the new home. I need an update!!!

3) I clearly remember pics of you in your bathing suit (not in a creepy way!!)... you don't need a bra. Ever.

4) Your brother? That is just an awful picture of his ankle! I know athletes are used to pain and been bruised up, but man... now his elbow? Poor guy!

5) Go Cats! ;)
