Michael took Ethan back to the dr’s office on Friday afternoon since I couldn’t leave work. He saw the NP again, the one that saw him on Monday. She essentially told him we were crazy, that there was no way he’d be walking on it and not screaming if anything were broken. She did not refer him to x-ray, just said (again) that maybe he strained something. It has now been 8 days since he hurt it. He is STILL limping. I do not understand how any 2 year old could “strain” anything so badly that 8 DAYS LATER, he is still limping on it. Yes, he will run on it, yes he is walking on it without crying, but he is still limping. Maybe Grace’s broken arm is coming back to haunt me. She had no localized swelling or bruising either, she just wouldn’t push down on that arm. I’m terrified that maybe there is a fracture or something, and that if we don’t find it, something bad will happen…..it’ll heal incorrectly or something and he’ll limp for the rest of his life. I was so angry when I got home Friday night and Michael told me what had happened at the dr’s office. I already have a call into the triage nurse, asking to speak with the doctor and not the NP this time, and get an x-ray because I’m just not satisfied with what we’ve been told. Am I crazy? I’d rather be crazy and have an x-ray that says he’s okay, than take any chances. And if it is broken, that office is going to HEAR ABOUT IT!!!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On a completely different note, Easter was great at our house. The kids LOVED their baskets. Ryley got the coolest X-Box game. It has all the old school games on it……pacman, ms pacman, digdug, galaga….AWESOME. I don’t think he’s going to get to play it much, competing with his parents to get time with it!! LOL! Grace actually hugged the Princess lamp that the Easter Bunny brought her, and Ethan played with his Thomas trains all day. We went to our friends’ house for Easter dinner with a couple other families. My kids were so dirty they almost had to be hosed off before getting in the car. And they were falling asleep in the bathtubs! At least they went to bed easily! Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!!
