Doily Bones

Robbie broke a toe this morning before school. I thought it might be dislocated, because of the way it was angled, but a trip to our pediatrician's office confirmed that it was broken, and it wasn't a nice clean break. They sent us up to Primary Children's ER to have an orthopedist look at it. When Robbie told him that he had simply stubbed it on our ottoman, the orthopedist asked if we had a family history of brittle bones. I told him that I've never had a broken bone, but that Rob has had at least eight. Let's hope Robbie doesn't beat his record. Four hours and hundreds of dollars later we came home with a taped toe and an orthopedic shoe. I guess I can't complain much, this is our first broken bone, and he doesn't even need a cast.
