Last Tuesday, we were having a blast at our friend's house...
...when I heard a blood curdling scream coming from their basement. I went running as I recognized the cry as my son's. After calming his hysteria he told me his foot hurt because when he had jumped off the stairs he landed with his toes pointing backwards toward the stairs. He didn't walk the rest of the day, woke throughout the night in pain and then didn't walk that morning.
On Wednesday I took him to the doctor.
Nothing was broken! Just a bad sprain. The doctor gave us a picture of Emmett's "skeleton" (the x-ray). Today, a week later, Emmett is still limping! That poor little boy.

Thanks for documenting this event. It is so interesting to see all the places you go in a day.

Also, that paper on a examination bed is finally put to its proper use: art paper for artistic expression!
