Late the night of Feb 15th Hayden was being a good brother and friend by fetching a DVD for the girls that wanted to watch something. He was hustling taking the steps two at a time...he slipped, heard and crack, saw stars... The DVD was fine and so was his wrist or so he thought.
The next morning his wrist was still hurting and our plan to spend our long weekend with Alyssa and Logan was now in jeopardy. We chose to be "better safe than sorry" so headed off to the Urgent Care Center at Kaiser. There were hardly any cars in the Urgent Care parking spots so we figured we'd get in and out in a hurry. Four hours later we came home with his wrist and thumb immobilized by a splint type thing that was removable.
We had a great time messing around in Lacey with Lys and Logan and Max and Chaos and Havoc.
A few days after we got home we got a call to make an appointment with the fracture clinic. The x-ray that showed a possible fracture ended up showing an actual one once the experts saw the films. So today, eleven days after the event, Hayden has a full cast with the ability to move all his fingers and thumb. I'm glad it wasn't worse than that. No surgery or major breaks just needs to knit up a bit and he'll be good as new. I think his black cast is pretty cool!
