We made it. School is over for the summer. Well, for the kids it is. I'll be doing Extended School Year in July and also working with my student in August. Two days a week for two months though is no hardship and the extra bit of money is most welcome.
When last I updated Cal had been to the clinic for a sprained wrist. Well, it turns out the sprain may actually be damage to the growth plate. Last night he was in a great deal of pain. After E talked to the consulting nurse and a doc they suggested we head to Urgent Care.
We left the house around 11. I had to stop for gas because I didn't want us to get stranded on the drive to and from Seattle. We made it into one of the exam rooms by 12. It took forever for the doc to see us (only one works GHC Urgent Care). Cal was a trooper through the whole ordeal. The doc called for more x-rays, which is what held us up.
Cal was given a real splint this time. It totally immobilized his arm. He was given some ibuprofen and tylenol with codeine (the miracle drug!), which helped with his pain. We've got to get into an orthopedic specialist before Wednesday so the growth plate can be checked out.
We made it home around 4am. Cal was wiped. I was wiped. We slept in but didn't get our full sleep by any means. Hopefully we'll get this taken care of before we leave for Oklahoma on Wednesday. GHC doesn't have anything in Oklahoma and I know Mike doesn't want to pay 40% of the cost of seeing a specialist not to mention a likely MRI bill.
