A Quick Update

I took Dagan to see his doctor yesterday and they did more xrays. They told me he had nursemaid's elbow. From the information I got it is basically dislocating the elbow. It is real common in kids between the ages of 1 and 3. Since he had had it once, he prone to getting it again. They popped it back into place (which was terrible!) and he was fine. There are many ways that kids can get this, but most common are picking kids up by their hands or holding their hands when you walk and they stumble and fall. It just jerks their little elbow bone out of place. I am just thankful it was not broken!

PS-Julie we have joined the club and had to stop and get a sno cone last night!!
