Pumpkin Pie, X-rays and antibiotics

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Plenty of turkey and most importantly - pie. So much fun visiting with family and catching up with people we haven't seen in a while. Friday, after lunch we were cleaning up the table at Grandad's house when Sam started playing with his favorite toy in the world. Doors. Sam spends ALL day opening and shutting doors. Closet doors, room doors, drawers, Little People barn doors. you name it, he opens and shuts it. He decided to play with Grandad's wooden trash can door when it slammed shut on his little fingers. His little finger instantly turned purple, bled a little and looked horrible! I had to take him in to immediate care because he kept crying so much I knew it was hurt pretty badly. It turned out to be broken - well fractured. To be exact, he has a "minor avulsion fracture of the medial aspect of the distal tuft of the left ring finger." Its a small fracture, but its his first official broken bone -- to match his chipped front tooth. He's all boy for sure! Nothing a little antibiotics and a few bandages won't fix.
