Update on S

We had another gorgeous day yesterday. The girls (my neighbors) and I sat outside and actually got a little sun - love warm weather. Today is also going to be nice.

We took S to see the orthopedic doctor yesterday afternoon. The doctor definitely didn't have a good bed side manner, I would ask questions and he would look at my husband to answer them, I guess he thought I was an idiot! Anyway he re-splinted S's thumb/arm instead of putting a cast on it. He will be able to take the splint off to take a shower in 10 days, he's already counting down. He will go back in 3 weeks to be x-rayed to see how it's healing but will still have to wear the splint for about 6 weeks total.

I took a picture of his thumb when they took the old splint off, he said it hurt very bad once the splint was off.
the new splint.

Oh goodness. Praying for S's little thumb. That it will heal quickly and won't cause too much more pain.

Enjoy your beautiful weather,

Ugh...Poor S, We had a Dr at Bostons Children for W that has a not so nice Bed-side manner or not a nice side to him at all...all he saw were $Dollar$ signs as we walked into his room. I had serious questions and he snared at them and laughed? I was on the edge of my seat with disbelief and I really Thought my Husband was going to flip!
I hope S get healed up quickly so he can enjoy his summer!
