Last Thursday Ethan went to hang out at a friend’s house. They were climbing trees, of course. He stepped out of one, landed on a root and twisted his ankle. The swelling didn’t go down by Friday night so I took him to urgent care. The doctor thought he saw something in the X-ray but the radiologist didn’t. He got sent home with a boot anyway, just to be safe. His friend’s mom had some crutches that they brought him home with. He took them on the first day of school but when I drove down to the bus stop to pick him up he got off carrying them. He said his arms were killing him. He’s ditched them completely now.
