Broken Finger!

Well, we have our first official broken bone! Daniel was running in his classroom on Friday and smacked his hand against the counter...hard enough to break! OUCH!!! To make a long story not quite so long, we saw the doctor and had it x-rayed Friday night. He wore a splint all weekend, and we found out on Saturday (on the way to T-Wolves basketball) that it was broken. Daniel actually played basketball with a broken finger! That is one dedicated player!

Yesterday, (Monday) we went to Orthopedics and the doctor decided that he needed to cast it. Well, Daniel choose blue, and thinks it is a pretty cool cast. Of course we all had to sign it. He took a black Sharpie to school and was excited for all his friends to sign it. I guess if you have to have a cast, you might as well make it fun! He has to have the cast on for one month. I think the fun will probably wear off soon!

Love you Daniel! I hope your finger heals quickly and you can start playing basketball again!
