Looks so idyllic...

Rocks 2, Son 0

I don't know if these are the actual rocks that laid out my "baby" son. But I'm after the one(s) that did! His wife called this evening from the ER: Separated shoulder. He called me later. The doc didn't think emergency surgery was necessary and gave him a referral. None of us knows whether surgery will be advised or not. Son hurts too much for the poking and prodding that would/could yield more information. Apparently there are no fractures or brakes, though.
Sent home after a many hour wait with pain killers and anti-inflammatories.
And tomorrow is the first day of school. For the teacher.
Or maybe not.
Once a mother, always a mother.

Indeed, a mother forever. Hope your "baby" can get a handle on the pain. Shoulder things are bad business.
