Our Benny boy is doing a lot better this evening! Still a far cry from 100% but at least we've seen a couple of smiles tonight :) Here are a few pictures for those of you who have been asking...
|Yup, that's his collar bone!|
-------------------------------------------Between returning Monday night from a five day trip to Austin and a half day ER trip yesterday, there are about a million and half things that are in need of my somewhat immediate attention. Since it's almost been two weeks since I posted though, and two of my three are still sleeping, I decided to allow myself ten quick minutes this morning to post about my sweet Benjamin who took a nasty spill in the backyard yesterday morning. While we're not really sure what or how it happened; what we do know is that he fell and on his collarbone. After a couple of x-rays, two doc's and a radiologist say it's not broken but that it's either a green stick fracture or a separated ligament or tendon. Either way, it is extremely painful and our poor guy is not up for much more than sitting with mom or dad and watching movies. And since there's not much they can do to treat a collar bone injury except wait for it to heal, we're just relying on pain relievers every four hours and the tiniest sling EVER. I seriously think the hospital borrowed it from a teddy bear in the gift shop or something : )
|All in all, our boy is fairing well, despite his ouchiness. His ability to still try and milk us for fruit snacks is a good reminder of that. I think he ate approximately 47 bags yesterday, as opposed to the usual strict allotment of one! And while yesterday was quite the long day and we all hit the sheets a little run down, I've been praying all morning long that a good night's sleep will make all the difference today.|
Times up! Time for this nurse-momma to hand out some
fruit snacks medicine!
