On Sunday we rented several redbox movies and we let Reid lay around and watch movies all morning. He started getting restless from being cooped up after lunch and got in trouble for diving across the living room after a hula hoop. He said "having a broken arm is no fun; you won't let me do anything!" We ended up letting him go outside to walk around as his friends played. One of his friends was trying to talk him into riding his bike with one arm and he said "my mom won't let me." One day down, 41 or so to go :)
Reid went to school today and is doing just great. He really hasn't complained about pain much at all. He took a bath last night and didn't like the arm moving at all. His teacher seemed very ready to deal with helping him through his day and said they would figure it all out. I hope he stays calm! Russ and I were telling him that he could not participate in recess or p.e. and he thought it would still be ok if he just went down the slide. It might be a long couple of weeks since recess and p.e. are his favorite parts of school :)
We meet with the orthopaedic doctor on Wednesday at 1:30 pm so we'll see what the long term plan is then.
