My poor little Joseph. He broke his arm Saturday morning. *But* we didn't find out until Monday morning!!! -------
Paul was getting ready to take John Paul and Joseph to the "Man Store" [aka, Home Depot] Saturday morning. John Paul exclaimed to Joseph that they were going - so Joseph excitedly climbed the dresser for some socks.
We just heard a crash and a scream.
Paul took him to the local Doc-in-a-Box where they took x-rays and told him it was not broken - that it was just bruised. Paul called me and told me the good news. I was so relieved! Until Monday morning.
A call from a doctor at the local Doc-in-a-Box prompted us [Paul] to take him back in. The doctor - after reviewing the x-rays - said it looked like he did indeed have a fracture.
In the meantime, I had to take Dani up for her first day of testing. I called Paul and he told me that it was broken after all.
Imagine how awful I felt after he had to walk, run, jump around with a broken arm all weekend. He was in so much pain! When the doctor called to see how he was doing I just told him how he was still in so much pain. He couldn't even rub his hands together while washing them.
I'm going to try to post the x-ray on here, but just wait 'til you see it! Any layperson 5+, could identify the break. I couldn't believe, especially after seeing it, that they had missed that the first time around.
Anyway...he got his cast on this morning. He sure is a trooper, according to Paul, about all this medical care! They didn't need to set it. I'll take a picture of him and post it as soon as he wakes up from his nap.
Some moms from the homeschool group gave me a warning of informing him of the "removing of the cast" so he won't freak out when they bring this SAW out to use on his arm. I told Paul this morning that "they don't know Joseph". Even if we didn't tell him anything, he'd LOVE the fact that something dangerous was in his vicinity. LOL - he really would!
