I'm thinking that maybe Nathanael has been feeling a bit left out lately? No, just kidding! Poor kid was wrestling with his brothers and another boy when someone jumped on his hand, breaking his finger! This all happened Friday evening.
Somehow, I think the middle finger shouldn't turn in toward his index finger......
Saturday we went in to our Doc who agreed with us, it's busted pretty badly!
Soooo, what to do? Numb the finger, and set it! Yikes!
Michael and Julia watch as he gets a shot in the finger. Ouch!
Nathanael had to wait a few minutes for the finger to be numb enough, and then the Doc came in, and pulled his finger straight! It had a nice loud cracking sound......ugh! A nice splint holds it securely and Monday we will get an x-ray to make sure the set worked, if not it's to the ortho with Nathanael!
He chose a red wrap, I guess it was better than purple? ;-) In two weeks we will get another x-ray to make sure it's healed enough to start exercising that finger.
My brave son deserved a special treat so we went to Dairy Queen....he ordered a Blizzard and the rest of us got hot fudge sundaes!
