But finally it was 9 days later and he was still saying off and on that it hurt. So I decided to make a doctor appointment for him after school the next day. We went to the pediatrician and he thought since it had been a while he would send him on to an orthopedic doctor for an x-ray. So I spent three hours that day in and out of doctors offices with all 3 boys in tow - it made for a very long afternoon! The x-ray was inconclusive, but the 3 orthopedic doctors who looked at it thought that he may have had a fracture in a growth plate, which wouldn't be visible until it started to heal, 14 days post injury. Since it was only 10 days post injury, we wouldn't know for sure for a few more days. So they gave Pierce some bandages and a boot to wear (even when sleeping) and made an appointment 10 days later.
How about you, readers? Any broken bones in your childhood?
