Broken Arm!

As most of you know Dawson broke his arm! The break goes completely trough his radius and halfway through his ulna. To make it worse we do not know exactly how it happened. I know WORST MOTHER OF THE YEAR AWARD. (We think it happened when he fell of our bed, of course face first) All I know is he had been whining for a few days and had a ear infection also so I kept doping him up on Motrin obviously masking the real pain of his arm. By Tues. the 11th I was sick of his whining and constant needing to be held mentality so I keep putting him in his bed, he fell asleep a couple of times and when he woke up I put him by his toys and the crawl was pathetic!!! It was like a limp crawl. I knew something was not right and sure enough, broken. I do not get it my kids drink tons of milk! He got a really cool blue cast, all the way past his elbow. As you can see he is really excited about it. They will replace it with a smaller cast tomorrow. Oh yea apparently casting a broken limb actually improves a childs whining. He is like a all new kid!! Yea
