Folks, I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later. You can't have a male child and not have major limb injuries at some point before they move out of the nest. I honestly thought our first would be as a result of little sister finally taking out her aggression because of being endlessly needled by the boy. Little did I know it would be at the hands of a classmate who decided to do a seated senton across Quinn's forearm during P.E. Might I mention they were learning baseball at the time. Specifically the parts of the baseball diamond.
I guess the kid took it in stride and the school nurse wrapped his arm up and he went on his way. It's still sore even 2 days later, when he twists his forearm, but he's pretty tough.
I fully expect this is only the first of many such injuries, but hopefully he can steer clear of the kids who can't control their physical aggression. I understand accidents, but intentional butt drops onto an unsuspecting classmate are a sign of something else.
So we took him to the doctor this morning to have it looked at and x-rayed. Turns out he has a fracture/break in his ulna. And his radius has been bent. Did you know kid bones can bend? I sure didn't. Just like a chicken bone. He has got to have to highest pain tolerance of any kid I know. Unless he twists his forearm he doesn't even act like he feels it.
