So what did you do this weekend??
My weekend included 2 firsts
in my 11+ years of parenting
1st trip to Urgent Care
Our doctor’s office offers care 24/7
so we’ve never had to go to Urgent Care
They do no offer X-ray on the weekend
Of course this had to happen on the weekend 😛
It is also our first broken bone
Both the urgent care doctor
and the X-Ray tech were shocked –
they thought it may be some sort of record!
So I spent my morning at Urgent Care getting this cute 3 year old
X-ray’s and a sling…
Had I known they would have just put it in a sling
I could have saved hundred’s of dollars
and just bought a sling.
I did get to Urgent Care
as soon as they opened on Saturday Morning
So it only took about an hour
for X-ray’s and everything…
Not too bad really!
Clavicle breaks are a very common childhood injury
Now I know!
That area does not harden until you are about 20!
It only takes landing wrong.
3 rough and tumble boys
I guess I should have guessed we’d have a broken bone
sooner or later!
While we were waiting for the Doctor
He was singing
“No more Monkey’s Jumping on the Bed”
since he did this falling off my bed.
Meant to land on the couch at the end of my bed.
instead landing badly on the floor
My bed is high,
but not too high..
He just landed wrong.
Poor kid 🙁
I thought he might just sleep it off.
but when he woke up in the morning,
still in pain,
I knew it had to be more..
He is our klutz
We’ve done emergency teeth visits with him too
(the Dentist was able to save his teeth!! YAY for good dentist!!)
He is also milking it for ALL it is worth
After getting done at the Doctor
Asked to go get Ice Cream
It was 10am…
but I still obliged 🙂
He also got a new Chima Set
and a Skylander he’d been asking for for quite awhile
His siblings are helping him play
by moving the characters with the nunchuck
and he used the wii remote to push buttons
It is so sweet to see them be nice to him
and try to help him out 🙂
He is starting to get used to using one hand/arm
which is hard since he is right handed and his right hand in in the sling!
Plus his aunts brought him balloons and treats!
I hope he doesn’t get any ideas about future injuries…. 😉
