The follow-up x-ray showed that the bones were no longer aligned. How do you keep a 7 year old from playing for 2 months? Our middle child underwent surgery last night to internally fixate the radius and ulna. He sailed through the surgery and anesthesia like a champ. (Thank God and the wonderful staff at TAMC)
He woke up and said, "I have stridor." Only a doctor's son would wake up and make his own diagnosis.
Since the ward was packed to the gills they allowed only one of us to stay with him through the night. So, we asked him who he wants to stay with him. He chose Grandma (my mom, Hi Mom! thanks). I was sure he would choose his mother and my wife was sure he would choose me. We asked why grandma and he replied, "Because I haven't seen her in a long time." Bless him.
We performed a change of the guard this morning. Grandma is none the worse for wear. Wife just called. They played cards, there is a classroom on the ward and he's been playing games and the organ. She's worried that he's not complaining of any discomfort. Such a worry wort.
Silly me, I thought no pain was a good thing.
