Broken bone

Yesterday, just before we were getting ready to leave to go to dinner to celebrate my birthday, Aidan dumped a chair on himself. Of course Aidan cried when it happened, but Ruairi and I thought he was fine. We proceeded to go to dinner. While we where at the restaurant Ruairi wiped Aidan's hand with a napkin and Aidan started to cry hysterically. Ruairi looked down at his hand and noticed that his left middle finger was swollen and starting to turn black and blue. We left the restaurant, without eating our food and I called the doctor office on the way home.

The doctor sent Aidan and I to the after hours clinic and to get x-rays. Aidan did great at the clinic walking around playing. He did not do so well for the x-rays. From the way he was moving his hand around, and fight me, I thought there was no way his finger was broke. But, 45 min after the x-ray was done, the doctor confirmed that Aidan did indeed brake his finger.

Aidan is doing well and going on like nothing ever happened. His able to still use that hand to eat, play with his toys, and climb up on the furniture.
