Foot injury #1
We all have a lot of fun wrestling with our kiddos at the Funkhouser house.
Sometimes we laugh so hard watching everyone's face expressions and such.
Jeremiah is by far the funniest of them all right now.
He was just jumping onto a bean bag  from the floor.
He was crying for awhile then eventually stopped but it took a long time to stop.
Which isn't usually the case for him.
So when he got up off the floor he couldn't walk
So, we decided to wait it out and see what his foot looks like the next day.
So he woke up and his foot was swollen.
I measured it
not sure why
but it was a good 1 1/2 inch to 2 inches swollen compared to the other foot and he couldn't walk
but he wasn't crying
So I took him in and they did ex rays and of course...
He broke his Metatarsal bone.

I never knew of such a thing.  So he just had to keep it up and put ice on it for a few days.
Well, that is a little hard to do with a 3 year old, so I carried him around a lot.
He seems to be doing just fine, just limps and sometimes runs with his foot up.
