We're at my mom's. He fell while playing in the kitchen. Abigail told us he slipped on a little plastic dinosaur. It's the inside of his left ankle (on the bone) that hurts. It may be a little red, or that could be a rub mark from his night splints. It may be just a tad bit swollen. Or that could be normal differentiation between his two legs. The biggest thing is he refuses to walk on it. But I've pressed all around, wiggled it every which way. He can move it. He just won't put his own pressure on it. I put his night splints on him, since it was already past bedtime. I convinced him that he should try to walk b/c they just might help. He took a few steps, but with a big limp. Again..what that real or just for effect. It's so hard to know. So instead of waiting for hours on end at the ER, catching every bug out there, I'm going to wait until morning before I decide to take him in. If he walks just fine in the morning, then I'll consider all is well. If he still refuses to walk, then I guess it's off to the hospital. I figure since it's completely imobilized in his brace at night, then no harm can really come of waiting. I just pray he's better in the morning.
He's up and walking on it this morning. He's limping a little, but I don't think it's broken. I'm still keeping an eye on it, but I think he'll be okay.
