Another broken bone...or two, or three?

It isn't Miles this's Franklin! And yes, he has three broken bones in his left foot! He jumped off the top of his slide last night, landed badly on his foot, and ...OUCH! I took him to the doctor this afternoon (our morning visitors had to leave early, so I could take him :-( , then on to the hospital for x-rays, and we were surprised to learn that he had three broken bones. He will be going to the Orthopedic doctor on Monday for a cast...they were already gone for the day, and they aren't open on weekends. He has strict instructions to stay off his foot, which won't be a problem because it is so painful, put ice on it, and stay on Motrin every 6 hours. We'll find out more on Monday!
