Ds (8) went to a birthday party today and the kids parents drove him since his dad and I both had to work. At the party ds got off some mountain climbing thing and landed on his knee. After the party they went to hang out with one of their friends and brought ds along, no big deal. When he got home he was limping and saying his knee hurt. Some of is was definitely added theatrics, but his knee is a little swollen. They're saying ds never complained about it and was playing with the other kids all evening. My issue is you can see it's swollen and he's walking a little funny (he's not fully putting that foot down). I'm so annoyed because he was hurt for at least 5 hours before he got home and nothing had been done for it (ice, taking it easy).
I gave him some ice and ibuprofen. If it's still swollen in the morning I'll be taking hiim to the er. Ugghh
