It was once we got up and he tried to play but couldn't, Advil was administered and did nothing, and he let his arm hang limply we headed to the hospital. I worried I was being a nervous Mom, but I do feel its better safe than sorry. Not to mention Jack is tough as nails when it comes to getting hurt so I was put off by his mood.

Turns out that this is a common thing to happen to little kids and the doctor walked me through how we would put it back in. Pretty much what you think, although I had hoped they would put him under so he wouldn't have to witness the arm twisting. The other people in the waiting area must have thought we were killing him judging by his screams but the little bone wouldn't go back into place.
We went to X-ray where Jack had his first two X-rays, and so did his best bud bunny Munn. Munn came along for the nap and got more than he bargained for haha. Once it was determined his arm wasn't broken (thank goodness!) it was back to some more arm twisting. Finally the doctor gave Jack a rest and he couldn't tell if it was back in. We decided to leave for a day and come back if it was still trouble. But by the time we were in the car Jack has settled down and high fived me with his bad arm. Wahoo! We are so appreciative of the great care we received at the hospital by all the friendly staff.

He happily played with his toys resting his arm and using it every now and then to move a block.
|Jack's reaction, " MORE MOMMAAAA..... MORE!"|
Lucy and Jack reunited in the afternoon and were so pleased to see each other after such a long busy day apart.
Yes, Lucy needed to roll in grass after getting so clean and white at the BuddyLuv dog spa. She amazingly adapted to her new salon that is cage less and made 3 doggy friends. I was flabbergasted to see her play so well with other dogs - wonderful experience to make up for the injury of the day. Yeesh and I thought having furniture delivered made for a stressful day!
