the X-rays

Luckily, the first X-ray is a more accurate representation of the break. Finley cracked both arm bones near the wrist. The second X-ray is from the side & the break looks worse, but is expected to mold right back into shape.

They put him in a splint until Thursday, when Finn's pediatrician will put his arm in a cast. He was such a good sport & had the nurses laughing once he started feeling better. We're so thankful that the doctor didn't need to manipulate or reset his arm. I was most worried about that possibility. :/

Finn is in good spirits & is even trying to use his broken arm as an excuse to get out of anything & everything he doesn't want to do. What a turkey! We're very proud of him though & impressed at how brave he was through the whole scary process.

That second x-ray really makes my arm hurt for him. Ouch!
