Another evening in emergency medical care. Somehow, within ten minutes of being put to bed, Gideon managed to dislocate his elbow. This is a feat only a Morrow could accomplish.

Lucky for us were were queued to the top of the list since his screams were disconcerting the other patients in the waiting room. Since we didn't know what happened, they took x-rays to make sure nothing was broken. That was traumatic.

I feel my dreams of a doctor son slipping away, this kid does not like hospitals or medical personnel.

They didn't put him in a funny paper dress, hence no adorably humiliating photograph to share.

Nothing to see here, go on, click on through.

Poor Gideon.
A "Nursemaid's Elbow" perhaps?

Not this time -- once when he was five months I accidently dislocated the other elbow lifting him out of the swing -- and I learned my lesson. We're all very careful about that now. He did this one on his own.

Reb,

Why is this so damn hard?

I chalk it all up to retribution and karma. :)
