Welcome to Tell Us Something Good! I'm so glad you're here. Every Tuesday, my friend Andrea from Angelica's Awesome Adventures and I will be sharing something good with you. We hope that you will share something good with us too. So grab the button at the top, tell us something good on your blog, and link up your post at the linky on the bottom.
My "something good" for today is the last update about Bryce's big boo boo. Even though he was moving his arm over the weekend, we could tell it was still bothering him. He wouldn't put any weight on it, and he was doing everything with his left arm. When Brian was getting him ready for school Monday morning, he could tell that Bryce was still in pain.
I called the pediatrician's office first thing Monday morning and left a message for the nurse. She called me back within a half hour and said to just take him to the orthopedic doctor. The first one I called couldn't get him in until today, the second and third ones I called didn't take my insurance, and the fourth one I called got us in. I am so glad that was the doctor that was able to see us. He was awesome!!! I always say that everything happens for a reason.
When we were called back, the doc was looking at Bryce's x-rays with two medical students. He came in the room and asked me what happened, and before I knew it, he was manipulating Bryce's arm and Bryce was screaming bloody murder. All of the sudden we heard a POP! That was it. He was better. It turns out that it was nursemaid's elbow after all, and for whatever reason, the ER docs weren't able to reduce it. The doctor then showed me how to reduce it myself if it ever happened again. hahahaha Yeah, I don't see myself doing that! He was just really awesome with Bryce and had a great bedside manner. I am so happy that we ended up going to him.
Bryce was still a little apprehensive with his arm when he was at the doctor's office, but by the time we got home, it was like nothing had ever happened. He was lifting with his right arm and moving it around with no hesitation. I am SO GLAD there was a simple fix, and that my little buddy is all better! We spent a fun afternoon together just playing around. I took a break to do some laundry, while he chilled out on the couch and ate his Teddy Grahams and watched his favorite movie - Bolt.
He loves that hat!
Another good thing is that I found out how his arm was injured in the first place. It turns out that one of the teachers at daycare pulled him by the arm, and when she did, he threw himself down on the floor and twisted, which resulted in the dislocation of his elbow. Now, I'm not even really mad at the teacher for what she did. Granted, these people that work at daycare centers should know better than to ever pull a child by their arm, but I can't tell you how many times I have done the same thing to my kids. It just happens. What I'm mad at is the fact that she didn't tell the daycare owner what had happened and left us all wondering how he hurt his arm. I'm not quite sure why she didn't fess up, though, because the daycare has surveillance cameras in every room, and it was going to be found out.
Even thought that isn't all that GOOD, there is a bright side to this part of the story...I am so happy that the owner of the daycare told me the truth. She didn't have to tell me what she saw on that camera, and she did. I still trust her 100% with my children, and I know she is doing what needs to be done so that doesn't happen to my child, or any other children, ever again.
OK, now it's your turn. Tell us something good...
