He had a fracture right above the elbow of his right arm. Luckily, it was nondisplaced, meaning he would be able to just have it casted.
|Buckling up in the carseat is a little difficult with a broken arm.|
So for the next 4 days, Anthony wore the splint, while I tried to find shirts that fit him. It got cold enough for winter coats, but the best I could do for the time being was get some of Joseph's tee shirts with wide enough sleeves. Meanwhile, we were trying to keep him from getting too rowdy, because you know how 2 year olds fall a lot. Here he is on Monday morning waiting at the Orthopedic clinic, and of course, standing on a chair:
|When is it my turn?|
|I frequently have to adjust his little sling, as in it could use adjusting every 5-10 minutes!|
|Just about every time I look at him, his sling looks like this.|
He has been getting pampered by everyone, especially the girls. Sometimes, though, he gets mad and yells at everyone to get away from him. He can't run around and jump off things, or swing on our swings, or climb up things like he is used to doing. I did wrap up his arm so he could play in the sandbox, which helps a lot when he is outside. One good thing is, he is left-handed.

In four weeks, we go back to the doctor. He'll get his cast taken off (that won't be fun!) and another
x-ray to see how things are healing. Hopefully that will be it!
