this is what I get for Mother's Day...
Several adults in the hallway said, "Oh, good, is this his mom?" and I started to wonder what was going on.
Then I heard the shrieking :)
Ethan was crumpled up on the nurse's bench screaming every time he tried to move. It was swollen, and he cried as he stood up to go out to my car. That's when I realized...I walked to school. One of the office ladies offered to drive me home so I could get my car to come pick up Ethan. It never crossed any of our minds that she could drive Ethan home WITH me.
She said she would check Ashley out when she got back to school, so we could leave quickly. When I walked back into the school, I could hear Ethan shrieking still. The other office lady looked like she wanted to strangle me for leaving him there.
To make a long story short, we got to the doctor's office where they quickly took some x-rays. His elbow had signs of trauma, and even though the Dr. couldn't see an actual fracture, he said he was pretty sure there was a small fracture on the back of his elbow, not to mention the strange scratch on his bone that wasn't supposed to be there. He worried that Ethan dislocated/damaged his growth plate and told us to see a specialist, just to make sure he doesn't need surgery. So now we're crossing our fingers that we won't have to spend a fortune on his elbow...
Here's to hoping your mother's day program wasn't as exciting as mine!
