Matt’s busted up hand

So being the nice mom that I am, I let my husband and neighbor take our kids to a baseball game. Two men vs. 5 kids. They had grass seats, and of course, the kids were running around playing. My brilliant and oh so careful son fell and broke his hand. Proof that the men cannot be trusted with 5 children. 🙂 After a month, half a dozen trips to the doctor, three sets of x-rays, 2 splints and 2 casts Matt’s broken hand is HEALED!! We had our last follow up today with the orthopedic doc- she said it looks great. Here are some pictures of Matt’s broken hand journey…


Here’s Matt with his first splint on. This was 3 days after the injury. It only lasted a few days and we were back in the doctors office having it refitted because it was rubbing a sore on the palm of his hand.

This was cast 1.0- it lasted about a week until he managed to break it at the bend- not bad enough to break the hand, he had to break the cast too… can’t have nothin nice…

Here he is in cast 2.0- the thicker, heavier, and stronger cast- he couldn’t destroy this one. I got to plug his ears for him today while they sawed it off!

Yay! He’s got two hands again- now take out the trash boy!!
