Is It Broken?
We went back to Louisiana for the EHS Alumni Softball tournament/reason for the Boss to get cake with family. We drove in on Saturday morning. Got some boudin. Went by the local Wal-Mart for a few party odds and ends and had about an hour to spare before people came by to have some cake. We enjoyed time with friends. Afterwards Daddy and MawMaw Pont went to go visit Uncle Larry for a little while. When Daddy returned he took the Boss to the ballpark to go visit friends and catch up. I stayed at the Vige homestead with Ladybug and Granny. After about an hour and half Daddy and the Boss came back to the house. The Boss had fallen off a slide at the playground and hurt his arm. I don't think I have ever heard him or seen him like that before. We decided it would be best to take him to the ER to get it looked at. Many hours 2 sets of x-rays and a CT scan later they said it wasn't broken, but it would be best to get a second opinion when we got home. He was still in pain when he got back home that evening and the next day. We spent more time with family in the morning and headed back home to get ready for first day of school the next day. As soon as we arrived in our driveway the cell phone rang. It was the hospital Doctor letting us know that they had missed a small elbow fracture on the initial review but saw it when dictating notes. So in a sling for the first day of Kindergarten! We will see what the Doctor says when we have the follow up appointment.
He already has the people taking care of him down...
