Have you seen those scenes in films where a mircale man places his hand on the sick and tells them to get up and walk?
Something similar happened to me - well to my son - today.
Two weeks ago we got a call to say that Joe, 15, had broken his arm on the ski trip with school.
He spent the rest of the holiday and the past week in a sling.
Today we got our appointment at the local Fracture Clinic.
"You have not broken you arm. Take the sling off. Move it. You wouldn't be able to do all that if you had broken your arm," said the consultant.
Although an appointment for a scan was made - just to be certain - Joe was back in tact.
It turns out that the space in the bone was a "growing space" (whatever that means) and not a fracture.
It is possible he has some soft tissue damage but that is all.
Joe is a keen and talented sportsman and the thought of being unable to take part in any contact sports had made him miserable.
For Joe today's news is a miracle.
For me I have an extra pair of hands to walk the dog - Hallelujah!
Today I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - Principles
Vest - Gap
Necklace - Primark
