So, I took the photo in this layout yesterday. Big R has been practicing his bike without the training wheels. He's been doing so well and he's been happily riding up and down the street. But unfortunately today as he was riding he had an accident and fell off, landing on his arm. He got a pretty good sized abrasion about the size of 2 quarters side by side near his elbow. Scraped off several layers of skin there. His elbow began swelling up and we were worried about the possibility that he might have broken a bone so I took him to the ER. Thankfully we didn't have to wait long to be seen. I guess that's one of the perks of living in a small town. Anyway, they x-rayed his arm and fortunately there were no visible fractures. The nurse dressed his arm and he even got an Otter Pop! By the time we left he seemed to be doing pretty well, jumping around and all. Altogether, from the time we got to the ER until the time we left, we were there less than an hour, I'd say. Very quick and efficient. It's pretty cool how they can do x-rays now and immediately see them on a computer. Big R thought it was pretty cool to see the bones in his arm.
So, that was our Saturday adventure. Fun stuff. And by the way, happy Chocolate Chip Day!
