I recieved a call around 2:30 from daycare explaining they thought Baylen had hurt his wrist...possibly broken. They weren't sure, but I needed to take him to DR and get it checked to make sure. He wasn't using it/favoring it and complaining it hurt. So, I took off after school to go pick him up and rushed him over to the hospital, which is fortunately 5 minutes from daycare. The ER was empty...good for us so we got right in and saw the Doc right away. Both nurse and Dr. thought it might not be his wrist, but his elbow/or ligament around his elbow. He had to get x-rays taken and was NOT happy about it. Mister spent most of the time in our ER room crying and crying pointing to his wrist. I thought for sure it was bad and kept trying to sing to him and calm him down. I know he was hungry but they told me not to feed him until we knew for sure what was going on with his arm in case they had to do something immediate like surgery or something. They brought him some motrin and about a half hour after motrin, he calmed down. Dj was in the room after we returned from xray and that also helped calm him down to see his sister and daddy. Luckily, Dr. saw no indicators that it was broken or dislocated, and even tried to manually "fix" his elbow ligament, which was another injury he thought he could have had but there was no "pop" and so they ruled it a sprain. Thank God.
