12/11/2002 Entry: "A&E again"

It would seem we spend quite a bit of time waiting to be seen at Mayday Hospital for one reason or another. Today saw us there again.

Taylor has been getting very clever just recently. He has discovered that if he empties his bin of nappies (I know, don't get me started), he can turn the base upside down, and then, when he stands on it, it gives him enough height to get over the gate on the door. However, today he fell badley on the other side, and complained very loudly with a cry that Clare and I know isn't a winging cry, but a cry of pain. Strange how you can tell the difference, but I am sure other parents know what I mean.

He appeared to be in a great deal of pain, and didn't really want to use his right hand, even to the point of not being able to lift up the juice bottle from the breakfast cupboard. We took him to A&E, and had an XRay. He even smiled and said cheese when they took the photos.

It would appear he has a small fracture in a bone by his wrist. He currently has a temporary plaster on and needs to go back tomorrow morning to have a proper one done. So this Christmas he will have his right arm in plaster. Lets hope Thomas The Tank Engine, Live Tour on 29th December cheers him up. To be honest it doesn't seem to be bothering him a great deal. He was really good having the plaster put on, and it will stop the pain for him. It is due to come off in "a few weeks."

Wonder what will be next?
