Nics" Nose!


Ahh another first...

Nicholas suffered a bloody nose while playing/practicing catching pop ups. It actually turned out to be a slight nose fracture requiring a small corrective procedure and light cast. The cast will come off Friday if it doesn't fall off first. Not easy keeping him in low activity mode.

It was tough to see him get hurt (first time I saw that much of his blood!) but thankfully he has not suffered too much and he has done pretty well in sympathy presents!!

The pic is from right before he took a little nap so they could go up his nose.
