Last week at my cousins wedding everybody was outside.. Of course Little Man wants to run around.. and is always falling over, beings he's such a little guy and has been only walking a few months.. Well he fell down and at that exact moment, my cousin Taylor stepped back (he's not light either) right on Brandt's arm. I calmed him down and we went on our way.. Off and on over the next few days I would notice that he would cry when he bumped his arm a certain way.. I decided to watch as it wasn't swollen and he was using it just fine.... I thought something was odd, but didn't know if I was just being silly and would second guess my concerns.. Maybe when he reached under my pillow and cried, there was a piece of something that poked him, etc.. Then last night Tim picked him up and he acted like it really hurt. I said forget it, I am bringing him in even if people think I am being a paranoid mom . Tim agreed w/ me that something wasn't right, even tho he acted fine the majority of the time (happy, playing, using his arm etc). So this morning I called the doc, we went in, then to x-ray (which he did NOT like) and sure enough it was broken. Not a break like an older child or adult, but an indentation is what they said. So it was off to orthopedics and a cast!! He was so happy to leave as he was NOT happy being touched by all these strange people. I will say tho, I was impressed w/ all that took care of him today and Little Man is fine w/ the big clunky green thing on his arm!.. So next time you are wondering about something w/ one of your kiddos.. Remember this:
Momma Knows Best!!!
