My poor youngest grandson, Nate, has really had a bad several weeks! Two weeks ago he was having a great time JUMPING OFF THE COUCH!! But all of a sudden he was in pain and didn't want to walk, so Trilby took him in to the ER where they x-rayed it, said it was broken, and put it in a splint. She scheduled an appointment to go to the orthopedic doctor the following week for a cast. But, as he learned to crawl around with the splint it began to come off. So they told her to come in a few days early. Well, that doctor said he didn't "think" the leg was broken. Sooooo, she took him home without anything on the leg. But after a few days of him limping around she decided to take him back--to the same doctor. After a few more x-rays he said it wasn't broken and she should make him walk on it. Well, as it happens a mother of a child from her same daycare works for one of the doctors in that clinic and she had seen Nate limping around, so she had her doctor look at the x-rays. Well, the next day they called Trilby and now Nate looks like this:
We feel bad for the pain he must have been in while not having the cast on! Poor guy!
