Haha. I just couldn't resist. It's my favorite movie and it pretty much sums up Graham right now :).

Last week at school Graham was playing basketball during recess and jammed his ring finger on his left hand. He came with it in a splint from the nurses office and we didn't think too much of it. The next morning he was still really complaining that it was hurting so Bobby and I decided that we should probably have it looked at.

The pediatrician agreed that we should get it X-Ray'd just to be on the safe side.

Graham and I spent the whole day either in my car or in a waiting room. We went from the pediatricians office to the X-ray place, back home for 5 seconds just to get a call that it was fractured and that we needed to head back over to the X-ray place to pick up the film and then go over to the  Orthopedic doctor. We are so thankful that Dr. Phelps is a friend of my sister-in-law Melanie! His office said that we could go right over and they would squeeze us in that very day.

Thank goodness for our Kindle Fire. Graham played games on it until I began to nag his for pictures. :)

Graham got tired of all my requests and began to pick his nose so the pictures would stop. :) Thankfully it wasn't too much longer before Dr. P came in. 

Good news is that while Graham's finger is fractured though the growth plate, he only needs to wear his finger wrapped in a splint for 4 weeks. Poor thing has to give up both basketball and baseball for the next 4 weeks while it heals. 

We are so thankful that it wasn't worse. Here's to a speedy recovery!
