The Broken Arm

My son Ethan broke his arm last Thursday. I was on a shoot and the wife called from the ambulance. I had my gear and decided to document. It's was really tough watching my boy suffer. I wiped lots of tears while looking through the lens, almost to the point of setting the camera down. I document my kids often and pushed on through.

He ended up with a compound fracture. The bone was completely broken and was protruding through the flesh. As I said I was not there and when mom realized what had happened, almost passed out herself. The ambulance was called and he was rushed to the hospital. He was SUCH a trooper. From the time between breaking his arm and JUST going in for surgery he was without any pain medication. At times he smiled and laughed as well. When I got there he greeted me and this was our conversation:

"daddy, what happen to my arm?"

"you broke it bubba"

broken voice "can you fix it?"

We love you Ethan, please help mom and daddy and choose a new hero other then Superman. A rock, slug or tree would be an excellent choice. Thanks for the look everyone.


His toy, rubber lizard. He LOVES him.
The compound fracture.

just before surgery. He knew he was going in.
after surgery and FULL of meds. :)

This shot is very special to my wife and I. 4 years ago she was wheeled out of this same hospital door with a brand new Ethan to introduce to the world.

next day at home
