He was all jokes and giggles before the doctors came in!
His thumb before they touched it, doesn't look so bad??
This face breaks my heart. He was in so much pain, and exhausted from the pain and emotionally distress! Not to mention he put up a good fight!
Today was just horrible! I took Ryan to the Children's Hospital to get his cast. We thought it would be easy, just go in, get the cast and we are done. Well he did more damage to the thumb than we thought. They had to reduce his thumb, basic pull on it and bend it back into shape. They tried to numb him, the needle scared him too death and made him cry. He bled like crazy from the needles, why I have no idea. Then he wasn't even numb. The "reduced" his thumb and sent us for xrays. He was in so much pain he was sick. We get back to the room and they say it isn't right, they had to do it again. It was the worst thing I have ever been through. There is nothing like hearing your baby scream for help when you are holding him down. My heart shattered! They really had to pull it hard and twist to get it into position. When the doctor was done the second time he told Ryan he wouldn't do it again no matter what the xrays showed. He felt horrible. What a job to have to torture small kids everyday, I felt for the guy. By the time he was ready for his cast his thumb was so swollen it didn't even look human. By then I was just holding and trying to comfort my poor baby so no pics of that. We sat for about 45 minutes before getting his cast so it was much better. Ryan choose red, his favorite color, but by then nothing could make him happy. He just wanted to get home! I am so glad this day is over! Let the healing begin. He is actually doing great now!
