Spiderman Cast

During the process of packing the car and getting ready to head home after a visit to Papa and Grandma Rish's house, Henry asked me for one more slide. I gave in. Henry and Arthur slid, they swung, and then...Henry fell...on my watch.

Henry had an ouchy, I'm responsible for the ouchy, Grandma felt guilty for the ouchy...then we headed home. On the way home, Henry assured all of us (Grandma included on the phone) that his ouchy was OK. At home, the ouchy was still ouchy (see the before pic below).


When Mom got home from work, we decided that a trip to Urgent Care was needed. And the doctor who looked at the ouchy pictures taken on the big camera, decided that Henry needed a cast (see after pic below).


While Henry picked out the color, I convinced him that having a purple cast is part of being Spiderman (sometimes Venom is inked in purple). Henry slung (imaginary) webs at the nurses on the way out of Urgent Care. Later that evening, Henry asked me to take his cast off, and I told him he had to keep it on and stay Spiderman.

When it was time for bed, Erin tried to take off his Spiderman shirt, and Henry said that he needed to keep it on to be Spiderman. Might be a long recovery in the same shirt...stay tuned for the next episode of the Amazing Spiderman.

Before there was Guitar Hero, there was the air guitar.
