JT had a what seemed like a minor fall at home but when he stood up he was limping and not wanting to bear weight on his leg. we observed him, gave Tylenol, and held JT the little bit that was left in the night (this happened close to bedtime Thursday). Praying it was just some type of muscle pull, we placed JT to bed and would determine what to do the next morning depending on how he behaved.
We arrived at Vandy around 12:30 and got checked in and taken back to a room rather quickly. Hoping this was a good sign. The resident Dr evaluated JT and she thought it sounded more than likely to be the Toddler's Fracture, but we needed to run some blood work to rule out any type of inflammatory markers that would cause the limping. We were told JT couldn't have anything to eat/drink until the labs came back in case they needed to do anything further. The lab should be back in an hour and that was at about 3ish. Didn't mention that JT had last eaten at 9am and I wasn't thinking about no eating in the ED or I would have given him something prior to arriving.
