Home from camping with just one broken bone.

We made it home from camping but we had an ER run in the middle.

I went and picked Ethan up from school on Friday and his teacher said he had a great day until he fell off the monkey bars. He cried and said his arm was sore but she was able to move it without much complaining from him. We noticed that he was favoring it but we went ahead with our camping trip. All day Friday and into Saturday morning, Ethan would barely use his arm. We decided to take him to the ER to get it checked out. They did X-rays but couldn't see a clear cut break but did see a fat pad which could mean there was a break on the other side. So they fitted him for a temporary cast and a sling. Ethan did great up until he realized he was getting a cast. I think he realized he wouldn't be able to use this arm for a while. Nothing a trip to "the little store" (the small camp store) couldn't cure. We have orders to see an orthopedic to see what they suggest. I am hoping to get an appointment Tuesday or Wednesday.

But, we still had a great time camping. Ethan got used to the sling very quickly and didn't let it get in the way of having fun.

Here are some pics:
