Todays' topic (brought to you by my older son at recess two days ago):
1. Sprain vs. break
2. How growth plates in children make it difficult to read x-rays so you're very lucky if you live in a place with an awesome children's hospital
3. Ibuprofen for a sprain but acetaminophen for a break (medical research = fascinating)
4. Is it easier to get around your elementary school using one crutch or two?
(Diagnosis: Sprain. But if it doesn't feel better in two days they're re-x-raying.)
All comments on children's injuries and the process of dealing with them solicited.
