Hurts

Logan fell on the side of his foot last night. He has been really cranky ever since and favoring that foot. He is walking on it... in fact, this afternoon he chased a ball and ran on it. But he is hurting. I took off his socks tonight to get him ready for bed and the whole foot is bruised. All up the inside of his foot, and across his instep. His instep is swollen flat and his toe is so swollen it is pointing down slightly.

I am glad to know that he is walking on it. Because honestly, if he wasn't I would have rushed him in for a cast. As it is, I don't think it is broken, but it takes a lot to damage the foot of a 2 yr old that badly... so I wrapped it in an Ace bandage and I asked The Man to bring home some Arnica cream after work.

I am trying not to feel guilty for taking him out today. He said it didn't hurt... but it is much worse than it was this morning. I think a quiet day is in order tomorrow.

Oh no! Poor little baby, and poor mama! Will he tolerate icing it? I know my 2 year old wouldn't, but it might be worth a try

Oh no. It took everything I had to keep the Boo Bear on it for the first ten minutes.

Now he is running around with it wrapped in an Ace Bandage with arnica cream. If I didn't know what it looked like under that bandage, I would think it was fine. He's a tough cookie, that one.
