T.R. is free! The latest x-ray of his leg shows healing continuing apace. He doesn’t have to wear the Velcro boot. He can run around like a lunatic! There is great rejoicing throughout the land.

The doctor, who apparently knows a fair amount about almost-twelve-year-old boys, did mention that things like jumping off of play structures might not be the wisest decision for the next weeks. I followed up by discussing not climbing up things that one can’t climb back down and some ideas on how high is probably too high.

If T. hurts when he’s tired, he can put the boot back on for a while and take Tylenol. He might do that once, but I doubt it. He’s been trying to forget the boot for at least a week now.

I feel like running around like a lunatic, myself, just from happiness. What a relief!

*sexist statement warning*

Some of us can figure this out before we are two, but boys seem to be missing the relevant part of the brain.

Problem is that the kid just loves to climb. I think that the broken leg was a pretty good wake up call to caution, though. He still seems to be taking it kind of easy on the leg. Phew!

Indigo loves to climb, but (so far) she has a sense of caution that some climbers lack. They take a lot of risks, or don't have a good sense of what is and isn't physically possible, or are just fearless. I suspect one or more of those qualities is behind the kid who's in the emergency room a few times a year, every year of his/her childhood, and it's almost always "his." Is T.R. one of those, or did he just get unlucky this time?

He just got unlucky this time. First real problem, actually. Syd is the klutzy one.
