Back to the story of Keller's "broken thumb" and I now use those words loosely because his thumb was never broken. We were seen at Urgent Care Sunday and by Monday morning, my gut was telling me something still wasn't right with Keller. He wasn't complaining of pain but I wasn't 100% convinced the diagnosis was correct. The more I thought about how he landed and where he complained of pain the night it happened just didn't lead me to believe it was his thumb. We decided to make an appointment with an orthopedic doctor because Keller is very active in sports and we wanted to make sure he received the appropriate treatment. Good thing we did because after reviewing the X-ray, the doctor informed us that Keller's wrist was broken and it would need a cast. There was no break on the thumb so I'm still not sure what they saw that resembled that. Nonetheless, it's highly unlikely we'll ever return to that place!
This was our first experience with a child in a cast and it came as no surprise that it was with Keller. The nurse brought in the color choices for casts and of course, Keller chose the brightest color they offered. He was a tad bit nervous but handled it like a champ. All smiles and didn't slow him down a bit!
Fortunately, it was a clean break and not near a growth plate so the doctor said it would heal nicely...and it has. Broken bone #1 in the books and with this ornery thing, who knows when the next one might be?!?!
