And he's even started to decorate it!
This one says, "I love you Family!"
And now for the update from the Orthopedist... Well the P. A. anyway...
They took two more x-rays because the ones from the ER yesterday didn't clearly show a break. They knew there was one there, thought because of a fluid sack around the elbow that is only really ever present when there is a break.
So we went back for two more x-rays. Josh did really well. I could tell it really hurt him, but he was ever-so brave!
Sure enough, the P.A. was able to see a break at the base of the humorous. The break goes clean through the bone, so we have to make sure the bones don't become mis-aligned. Apparently, there is a very, very small chance of that happening. They want to keep an eye on the break and how it's healing. We go back in a week for more x-rays.
He's under strict orders for no jumping, falling, monkey bars, P. E. or general rough housing. In other words, he's not supposed to act like a seven year old boy!
But, she said he'd only need the cast for 3 weeks assuming all goes well.
