When Moses was 9 months old he broke his arm.
We don't really know how it happened. We noticed it because he was beginning to crawl really well. He was getting really fast and had great form. One Saturday after noon we noticed he wasn't using his right arm.
On Monday morning we called our Pediatrician and they said to bring him in. Upon observation, the doctor did not find any swelling, Moses did not complain when his arm was twisted, bent or pulled. So the doctor said he might just be favoring crawling in his new way.
A week went by and the following Tuesday we called to doctor again. He still wasn't using his arm and we noticed a few times he would pull his right arm away if he had to put pressure on it. We had x-rays on Tuesday and a cast was put on on Wednesday.
He really did quite well for having a cast on. In total he only had it on for 11 days.
He chose blue so it would match his Halloween outfit.
He still played and got around very well.
He used it as a weapon a few times.
And refused to use his left arm to feed himself. Mom had pity on him and feed him, dad made him try to use the left arm- no dice. He's for sure a righty.
We had his friends from church sign his cast the day before he got it off.
Back to normal.
And he's so thankful he can eat by himself again.
