The appointment this morning was successful.
An early start...I loaded all three boys into the car shortly after 7:00 a.m. Carter for the bus stop. Luke for a neighbor (who had him over that early!). Brayden and I heading to the orthopedist.
Rain, and lots of it, had been coming and going since the wee hours of the morning so we left pretty early because rain does some damage to the traffic in the Washington DC area. Thankfully the traffic was not too bad because we arrived 30 minutes before the office opened. We were the first ones in, first on the sign-in sheet and first for the cast.
Brayden did not handle it all too well. He screamed until he fell asleep in my arms, of course before the doctor came in.
The orthopedist reviewed the x-rays from the ER. Yes, a break in the femur.
The cast seems to weigh more than his does. Picking him up, putting him in his wheelchair, loading him in the car, carrying him up the steps, putting him in the bed...all very awkward and while trying not to upset him anymore. He is not too happy this afternoon. He screamed all the way home from the doctor.
He is not pleased with having a cast.
Answered prayers that we got in with the orthopedist quickly this morning, that the break is not too bad, they could straighten his leg in the office, it is shorts season and we do not have to struggle to put him in pants.
