Caleb's Latest...

Last night, after church, (we are in campmtg.) I was fixing a snack and Caleb and Michael were running around the living room, letting off a little "after church steam", when the laughing turned to crying. Caleb fell down and Michael fell on top of him with most of his weight landing on Caleb's arm. Just in Feb. I made a trip to the ER with Caleb involving his arm. That time it was "Nursemaid's Elbow". (I'd never heard of it before) He was acting the exact same way, holding his arm close to his body and refusing to use it. We immediately went to the ER and for the next 2 hrs. the Dr. tried to figure out exactly what was wrong. After much feeling, wiggling and moving his arm around (with Caleb screaming), they finally decided to do X-rays. They found nothing wrong. But went ahead and put a splint on it just to keep him more comfy when sleeping. It was decided it must just be slightly sprained. As he has gone throughout the day, he seems to be using it a little more and not in quite so much pain.
Sigh........I'll take Legos on the roof anyday.....

Oh dear, is this what I have to look forward to? :-) Bryce already seems more accident prone than Mollie ever was. I guess that's what having a boy is all about! Poor little guy, sorry to hear that he was in so much pain. I'm sure it was hard for you too. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog!

Poor thing! Doesn't it just make your own heart hurt when your kids are in pain?!

Oh dear! I was just getting caught up on reading his recent escapades and have decided that he must never, ever meet my Kent! :)
