On Monday when Satchel was still asking for Motrin, I decided to take him to get an X-ray. It's the subject of this week's column, Broken arm can be pain, but a lot of fun for a kid.
Seriously, I don't know what to do about these titles!
Anyways, back to Satchel. I took a few pictures. Here he is happy to be out of school, hanging with his mom.
He was very excited about the X-ray. Look how tiny he looks!
He was truly devastated by the news that he was going to need a cast. It may have been the first time the nurse had ever seen a kid NOT be happy about getting a cast!
Eventually, some Huey's and some YoLo (and of course his awesome mom) cheered him up.
We did have a little drama this morning when he realized that his hoodies do not fit over his cast. PLEASE let me know if you see short-sleeved hoodies anywhere that I can buy.
