No More Monkeys Jumping OUT of the Bed
Poor poor Ryan. The kid has been terrible the last few days. He has been crying, clingy and will not sit in his highchair. Yesterday, I was fed up and I dumped him in his crib. I shut the door and started walking down the hall. I heard a loud thud. I went back in his room and he was lying on the floor screaming. Apparently, he had thrown himself over the edge of the crib.
To make a long story short, he has also had a fever so I took him in to see the doctor this evening. She diagnosed him with a double ear infection. Then I casually mentioned that he has been holding his arm a little funny since he fell out of the crib. She checked him out and referred us to the hospital for x-rays. Turns out he broke both bones in his left forearm. He is in a splint right now and will get his arm set and put in a cast in about a week.
I feel so bad because he has wanted to be held non-stop today and I've been so annoyed with him. I didn't know he had a broken arm or an ear infection and I was just annoyed that I couldn't get anything done and it is hard to hold him when I am this big and pregnant. I realize I wasn't very gentle getting him dressed today and now I feel terrible.
He will be getting lots of TLC tomorrow.
