I won't go there...
So we got up early and made our way to the hospital early this morning. I didn't want to spend my day waiting to be seen. Things went smoothly, and there was no wait to speak of. The most difficult part was that they asked that Gavin not eat before the procedure. He is always (always) hungry. And boy, oh boy, this kid can eat... not eating was a hardship.
I have a feeling Gavin's hand/finger is going to have permanent 'character' and will be a constant reminder that I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN HIM IN RIGHT AWAY! I keep kicking myself... but it just seemed like a jammed finger. A sprain. No big deal, right? Wrong again... Despite my lack of motherly-medical instinct, Gavin has been a trooper.
He's even getting used to being a Temporary Righty. I'm thinking that if he has to become right hand dominant for the next three weeks that I should try to become a Temporary Lefty. I think I'll give it a shot, but I'm not holding out much hope of being able to stick with it. It's a good thing Gavin is more patient that I.
