Carter's teacher posted this picture on the class page later in the evening.
We arrived to discover Elise had pooped her pants which was an added stress to the situation. Carter was cheerful and sweet as we entered the doctor's office. Elise ran up to tell the administrative assistant that Carty was hurt but just Carty, not her. We went back and shared what happened with the nurse. Then she took him for his x-rays. Ty arrived shortly after that. When the doctor popped in he asked if Carter was acting like he was in a lot of pain. We said not at all. He was shocked because he said Carter had a really big break. He took us over to look at it and then called an orthopedic surgeon so he could send us over to see him. Carter laughed when he saw the x-ray. As we walked out into the reception area, Carter wanted to look at his x-ray again. I held it up to the light for him and explained to him where the break was. There was a family sitting in the waiting room and they were shocked Carter was acting so happy with a broken arm. The administrative assistant told them Carter came in like that too. I was so proud of what a great job he did and how calm he was. He was definitely very tough!
