not ashamed to admit that when the 10-year old’s coach suggested that we get his wrist checked out, my first thought was not the welfare of my child, but the fact that this checking out would occur on my one free day. Well, one of two free days. Those precious days during the week when all the chickens have flown the coop and the house is silent. Could it really be that bad? I know he’s been cradling the wounded wrist in the palm of his other hand like a fragile bird for two days now, but come on…does this really warrant a trip to the doctor’s office? Which will then result in a trip to the radiologist? Which will take up the whole day?
