When we were eating dinner last night, Matt and I noticed that Porter wasn't really using his right arm, which is unusual for him. Also, he's been crabby since Thursday, when he was pushed off the couch by a certain 3-year-old sister of his. Plus, his right elbow was all bruised and funny looking... So, Porter and I got to make a field trip to the Urgent Care place last night.
Poor guy, he dislocated his elbow. He still managed to charm the entire staff, though.
At least I wasn't wearing my 'Super Mom' shirt this time, like I was when Betsy was nine months old and had to get stitches in her FACE. Although, Porter was wearing 'I Do All My Own Stunts' when he fell down on Thursday. I'm not convinced that that's when he hurt his elbow, because he was using his arm fine until Friday afternoon, but since he's a 1-year-old boy and his father's son, we may never know.
So, they took X-rays (his bones are cute) to rule out a fracture, and hooked Porter up with the World's Tiniest Sling, which is still a little big for him.He didn't want to use his arm last night, I guess because it still hurt, but he's actually doing a lot better today. We'll take him to his regular pediatrician on Monday or Tuesday to be sure, but I think he's going to be fine.
is TOLERATION even a word?
