I took Nephi to the ortho/fracture clinic today. They x-rayed his pelvis to make sure there wasn't any damage higher up. All is well there. :) Nephi did scream the 1 1/2 hour drive in though. His seatbelt was bothering him. I did stop to try and fix it - apparently I didn't do the job.
He doesn't need surgery to fix his leg. Hooray! I will take him back in a week for a full leg cast. Nephi chose a glow-in-the-dark cast. Not that he will be awake to see it of course. I guess since it will be so large - his brothers might be able to use it as a night light. :)
Getting ready to go back to the car after being examined.
Nephi was on Tylenol/codeine and it wasn't helping with the pain. We upgraded to Tylenol/vicoden for him. This is about 40 minutes after he got the first dose and a clean shirt and a sponge bath and a teeth brushing time. He is OUT! Just before he fell asleep I asked if his leg hurt. He couldn't feel any pain. This should be a much better night. I hope.
