Update on Drew

Drew was still favoring his left arm on Monday, and again on Tuesday. After calling and leaving a message with the emergency department (where he had x-rays Sunday night) Monday night, and then again on Tuesday with no return call Craig scheduled him an appointment with an Orthopedist. Not only did we want a second opinion (a radiologist didn't read them in the emergency room), but my aunt (who is a nurse) was concerned that they didn't check Drew's collarbone Sunday night. The Orthopedic checked all of this again, and determined that there was no break just a sprain, but he did put a temporary cast on it because he noticed Drew favoring it. The doctor did say, however, that it was hard to tell with children because their bones are so small. If it is not better in two weeks we are to take Drew back.
The funny part of this story is that because Drew's appointment was at 2:30, Craig picked him up early from school. I went and talked to Mikayla to let her know that Drew would not be in Extra Edition (after school program) with her because he was going to the doctor. She was fine with this. Drew, however, was having a bit of a problem. First, he says to Craig as they are driving away from the school "daddy, we left Mikayla". Craig said "no, Drew Mikayla is going to Extra Edition while you go to the doctor". Drew replies "great - Mikayla is going to be sitting in the office (at school) this whole time". Craig (trying to help him understand) says "no Drew they didn't call for Mikayla, just you". Drew replied "nuh uh, when they call for me it goes all over the school" (not really, but Drew has heard them do "all-calls" so he thinks every call goes through the school). Craig couldn't help but laugh. Once they were at the Doctor's office, Drew said "we should have brought Mikayla, she is going to be sad at Extra Edition all by herself". She was actually just fine, and even told the EE teachers "my brother ain't here today, he's at the doctor". Sibling love is just the greatest!!!
**Updated to include: I forgot to mention this sweet moment in my original post about the ER. When the nurse at the ER gave Drew stickers Sunday night, he said thank you and then went on to say "I need some for my sister too!" How sweet...
