Monday night Luke fell off the bench at dinner time. (Cassie was in his chair). We ended up taking him to the Dr. on Tuesday afternoon, after watching him all day. He wouldn't lift his shoulder or use his arm much, just kept it tucked in close to his body. And he was asking for help more often, getting up and down, going potty. He really seemed bothered by it if you touched him or moved his shoulder- not very cool when your kid starts crying and yells "don't hurt me mommy!". So we saw the Dr. and he sent us to get x-rays. The next day we found out that he had a broken collar bone. Poor guy. And right before vacation:(. That puts a damper on swimming and some of the other activities we were planning on doing. Oh well. There's nothing they really do for broken collar bones (unless they break through the skin) so he's in a sling for the next 4 weeks and then we'll go back to the Dr. to get more x-rays to make sure he's healed ok. Night time seems to bother him most now, so we give him Tylenol and hope he cab sleep a little better.
Ah! that xray looks scary! hope he's feeling better...
