It has been what 2 weeks since I took Toby to the ER for stitches? I guess we were overdo!
Trey and Toby were wrestling/fighting last night and Trey went to punch Toby and missed. He cried and complained that his finger hurt- but I thought 1/2 of it was for show to make Toby feel bad. I gave him some Tylenol, tapped his fingers together and he did not complain the rest of the night. His hand was a little swollen but nothing major.
So he wakes up this morning and his hand is huge and bruised! So I made an appointment at the Dr.
He got an x-ray and I was mortified. His bone is not only broken but it needs to be pinned- OK I get the bad Mother award! I swear he did not complain or I would have taken him tot he ER last night! He has a boxer's Fracture. I feel horrible! They called him in pain meds- but he is still not really complaining- it is swollen and bruised- but he is still trying to use it.
I wish I could post his x-ray it is really bad- scanner issue again!
He has surgery scheduled tomorrow here in town, but I also made an appointment at Children's in the morning- so I am not sure which way I am going to go yet- one way or another he needs surgery tomorrow and some pins to fix it. My baby- for his 10Th Birthday he got a broken hand! Happy Birthday son.
