Boys + Longboards = Doctor Visits


Today Matty fell while longboarding and hurt his wrist. I knew he was really hurt this time as he was on the verge of tears (+ the wrist was pretty swollen). Usually he just shrugs off the falls. So...I scraped meat paste off my hands (I was knee-deep in making Persian meatballs) and took him to the Urgent Care near our house. I was totally avoiding the ER (SWMC). We had such a bad experience there a year & a half ago with Matty. We only had to wait about 20 mins (yay!). Matty received an xray and thank God nothing was broken. His wrist & hand are very swollen, but he is on pain meds now and not feeling the pain so much. Once again, I have to say a prayer that we have health insurance!

1) I hope he was wearing a helmet, and properly to boot.
2) Go to Salmon Creek next time you need an ER and ask for RN Jill and X-Ray tech Patrick. Thems gives some great service.

Erin, I don't want to join Facebook. It would mean that I would have to converse with people I've been able to avoid since high school. :) A blog is good for me.
