What-What?! Week of May 29th

This weekend has been too exciting.

That is Osric, with his arm in a splint and sling.  We took the kids over to a friend's house yesterday, and at first everyone had a great time.  But then the kids were playing, and one fell on top of Ozzy and that hurt his arm.  He wouldn't stop fussing over it, so I took him to the emergency room.  It was most likely a case of nursemaid's elbow (where one of the arm bones in the forearm become dislocated); while examining him, the doctor popped his arm bone back in.  They took x-rays of his arm and elbow anyway, just to be sure.  Those came back good, but since he was still crying about his arm, we decided it would be best to put his arm in a splint for a few days.

So that is where we are at now.  Osric is definitely feeling better today; last night he was on pain meds, but he's been up for hours today and only just asked for some, so hopefully that means it's getting better.  Of course, it's his dominant hand, so that makes life extra hard.  We had sandwiches for dinner last night, and I fed him breakfast this morning.

Other than that, not too much going on.  We're going to the library later today, and might go out hiking tomorrow.
