Ben ( almost 8yrs ) jumped down of the stage at after school care on Monday night (like he has everyday practically for the last 2 years) and then complained his foot hurt but not to much and could walk okay.
Next morning his foot was swollen and sore, so Dad took a couple of hours off work and took him for an x-ray.
Kathryn on the other hand called in the cavalry (aka Grandma)
They diagnosed a sprain and sent him home telling them to keep him off his foot for the rest of the week. So Grandma drove to Hamilton and did a snatch and grab and took him home to Rotorua to spend a few day with her.
While everyone else went to school and work as normal.
Don't you just love Grandma's?
Unfortunately we wish it was all just that simple.
Turns out after the Radiologist re read and reviewed his x-ray later in the day ...they called at 5pm to say he needed to be seen again due to actually having a broken foot.
Slight problem here, he was now over 1hr drive away.
Thus a quick call to Grandma .....
