Just shy of 5 years and 2 boys later we had our first visit to the ER with my older son. I felt so bad that the accident had to occur while my mother was watching him! Thank goodness she´s a nurse!
My oldest and my mother were out for some on-one-one time, and just before the end of the visit James managed to get his right hand stuck in a door (where it attached to the frame). She called me to come meet her, and she already had James’s fingers on ice. We decided it was probably best to take him to the ER for an x-ray in case any of the fingers were broken. Poor guy—I felt SO bad. It really looked horrible.
After a few hours at the hospital, we ended up in the ER since Urgent Care was swamped. A quick check of the x-ray and confirmation that James’s fingers were working appropriately sent us on our way. I was proud of how well James handled the situation.
When we were headed home at around 9pm, my mother asked him what he thought of his first hospital visit, and he said it was “Super awesome good!” I guess you can’t ask for much more!
Running-related: I ran Sunday and then took Monday off. Yesterday I did an easy 4 miles in the Lone Peaks. I seriously heart them even more now.
I am in the middle of reading a soon-to-be released book on running injury free/good form/natural running. I CANNOT wait to share my review with you guys a little closer to the book’s publication date.
A lot of the info has really resonated with me and has me focusing on some different form issues on the run. I am hoping to run today, but it’s our super busy day with school and swim, and babysitting scarce, so we will see if I can fit it in. I hope so!
