Jake fell off the monkey bars today just as school got out. So we went straight to the InstaCare, and luckily our favorite MA was on duty. (Although it's not our preferred way to get to see Dinee, we were so happy she was there when we needed her!) One ice pack, one x-ray, and lots of tears and tissues later it was confirmed that he broke his arm. He has a buckle fracture of the radius. He is in a splint or soft cast for the next few days until the swelling goes down, and then he gets a hard, short arm cast on for about a month.
And of course it is his right arm. I have realized through a very long afternoon that I am in big trouble. What am I going to do when my right-hand man is quite literally with out the use of his right hand?!
