Yesterday (wow was that only yesterday?) Aj was playing outside with Kayla and he fell. Kayla came in the house screaming bloody murder saying Aj's arm was backwards. I was TERRIFIED to look at him because I didn't know WHAT to expect.
He looked fine when he came in and I looked at both his arms and they looked fine. I was upset with them because they were screaming like he was bleeding from the eyeballs and it SEEMED as if nothing was wrong. I was able to touch his arms and he was ok. He cried a little but that was it.
Welllllllllllllllllllll, he said his arm was hurting so I told him to take a bath and I was going to give him some tylenol and put some ice on it and he could rest in my bed.
I went to check on him in the bathtub and it looked like a tennis ball was attached to his elbow.
*freaking out on the inside*
I didn't want to frighten the other kids so I had to keep my calm. It just looked weird and yes it freaked me out. So what. I'm a softee lol.
I decided it was best to go ahead and take him to the ER and make sure it was all well, instead of trying to treat it as a sprain myself.
BEST DECISION EVER
Turns out it was broken in two places and dislocated.
Everything with him is fine now, thankfully he was out of school today and tomorrow so he will go back to school Monday with a big ole blue cast lol.
He isn't in TOO much pain but he does have some liquid lortab when he does. So far he has only had to take it twice today.
Thanks guys for all the prayers and emails checking up on my baby.
Now, I'm going to attempt to get some rest. Normally I'm a vampire and can go without much sleep but ummm. Momma is TIRED lol.
