This Kid Can't Catch a Break! Except He Kind of Did.

This is almost getting comical. It was off to the doctor again today with Ross. This time, the diagnosis is a fractured thumb. At baseball practice last night, he took a hit right on the knuckle. It was the very last thing he did at practice, and he toughed it out as we left. We put ice on it before bed, just thinking it was just smashed. I got a call from the school nurse this morning telling me she suggested we get it checked out. I ran him over to our beloved family practice physician where she splinted him and sent us over to the hospital for x-rays, just to be on the safe side we thought. We left the hospital a half-hour later, and we were told our doctor would probably call us in the morning with results. Another half-hour later our doctor's receptionist called to let us know his thumb was indeed fractured. I must have sounded like a total moron when I very exaggeratedly (made up word, I know) kept saying, "IT IS?!?!" Next stop is ortho in the morning. To be continued....
As Ross was walking down the hall at school this morning, sporting an ice pack, a girl that has a crush on him stopped him and asked him all about it. When he told her he got hit with a baseball at practice, she told him, "Oh, you're SO tough!" For those that know Ross can just see him rolling his eyes as she said that! :)
