Really? I mean Seriously?

I guess I have learned my lesson. Nothing ever happens in the Chupp household that is ordinary or simple. Yea I am talking about the fall from the couch the other day. Why can't a fall just be a fall? Why couldn't Hydrocephalus just be that and not the brain tumor component?

Anyway.....enough sob story, after a teary and often whimpery evening yesterday, and an even worse bedtime; I thought it was best to call his Pedi's office this morning and let them know that no bruises had come to fruition and that he was still hurting pretty bad. Mary talked to Dr. C who worked us in the "back way." Mary had me call when I got there with jammied up Keegan and we were escorted up backstairs into his office.

They saw me pretty quickly and sent us down a "back way" so as not to congregate with the general public to X-ray. They x-ray his little clavicle, they area under suspicion. The X-ray tech showed me the x-ray after we were done-a nice little broken clavicle, right in half!

I was then whisked upstairs where Dr. C told us to give him pain meds as needed but they pretty much heal on their own. They did supply me with two ace bandages so I can immobilize it and keep him comfortable.

I just thought I would update everyone! Of coarse we don't do anything normal in the Chupp house!


  1. Poor little Kee. And poor you!!! Hang in there... you're about to reach your quota of bad stuff, I just know it!

  2. Oh Beth, I am so sorry! I spent time with my prayer group last night praying for Keegan. I am so happy that you know the problem and it will heal on its own. I will pray for quick healing and no pain.

    Hang in there it is a rough ride but it will be ok!

  3. oh my goodness!!!
    He is such a cutie patootie! I hope he heals quickly.

  4. Oh man! Poor little guy. Hope he heals quickly.

  5. Oh, no!!! Poor little Kee. Give him kisses from us. Things are never just simple for those with special babies. That's why they have angel moms like you!!!!

  6. I'm so sorry! Everytime I think something is nothing it ends up being worse than I thought or something I don't even think of.

    Yeah that doesn't sound jumbled or anything lol, its 6am. Either way, for example, she had a small cyst on her thigh..turns out it was MRSA & she's never been to day care and neither me nor DH have ever had it. WTF.

    I'm so sorry he broke his little clavicle, but i'm glad you have piece of mind now & you have a great mommy instinct.

  7. Hello,

    I came across your blog, and have read it from start to finish now. I'm not even sure how I came across it, but I'm glad that I did! The first post that I read made me want to read more. Something about your precious little guy just grabbed my attention! The more I read the more I wanted to know. Come to find out Keegan is only three hours and six minutes older than my daughter. So many times I take her health for granted. Your blog has made me really thank God for her health. I know that we serve a mighty God! He is still doing miracles! He never lets us down! Just want you to know that you now have a family in Comanche, Texas praying for you! I will continue to check in and see what kind of miracles are going on with you guys!!

  8. Found you on the Weekend Wander. I've had a broken clavicle and that's what caught my eye from this post and kept me reading.

    I'm really impressed by you.


We love feedback; however, if you have nothing nice, encouraging, uplifting or insightful to say don't say anything at all. Thank You!
