Joshua's Visit to Orthosurgeon

We took Joshua to the orthopedic surgeon on Monday. He looked at his finger and told us that after looking at the x-rays and sonogram stuff he had a space between the joint in the little finger that really shouldn't be there. Since it is there is allowing the lubricating fluid from the tendons to collect and form a cyst. He told us he had never seen that kind of cyst on someone so young and he had also never seen one that big. He asked us if we could come back on Tuesday. He wanted to drain it but wanted to do it under sedation. So, we spent 4 hours getting him pre-admitted. We came back the next day and spent another 4 hours for a 5 minute procedure but it was worth it since he went to sleep a happy boy and woke up with no pain and not having a clue what had happened.
