Unhappy Trip to the ER

I got a call this morning telling me that my son fell down and needed to see a doctor. The next words were don't panic, I'll meet you at the ER. Kieran seemed fine until you moved him. We saw the doctor and he sent us for xrays. Sure enough there is a tiny fracture. The cast is orange and goes from his toes to his upper thigh. We have a follow up at the fracture clinic next Monday. I'm not sure what will happen. They did say he may need the cast 5-6 weeks. He is not allowed to walk but he can crawl with the cast on. I'm just glad it isn't winter. I told Terry to stop off and get some cheap jogging pants that I can cut. Since none of his socks will fit over the cast I plan on letting him have my fuzzy socks for the cooler morning ride. I'm just glad that he is okay.

Oh no! I'm glad he is ok. I hope the case doesn't have to stay on too terribly long.

When my youngest DD was around 2ish and had a toddler fracture in her leg, too. Cast the whole way up to her thigh and the doctor told me it was going to be a long 4-6 weeks and she'd be miserable. Well, she was doing sommersaults and walking in it within a day!! It depends on your child. We were lucky b/c it was the end of summer so she wore shorts/dresses to get through it.
An FYI for you as well ... She got the cast off in 5 weeks and walked goofy for about a month before she used her leg right again.
Oh my gf's baby had a cast and got it off last month and she said they sell this plastic sleeve type sort of thing that you put on over the cast and it suctions to the skin above it so you can take a bath/shower. We had to do sponge baths which were not fun.
