Broken Arm Update

Well, it's official Boy #3 did break his arm. Fortunately for all of us it is a quick mend. He has what is called a Torus Break which is when the bone buckles. He is wearing a splint and a sling that was put on by the hospital staff. As you can see he is all smiles.

Below he is sporting his new cast put on by the orthopedic surgeon. Yay for technology...he can do anything water with this cast on. He certainly didn't waste any time once we got home.

The great thing is that he only has to wear this for a month. Then he gets to wear a splint/brace for another month. At least he isn't going to miss out on any water activities......it gets HOT here!

I'm sorry that he broke his arm! But, they sure make good looking casts these days!

Poor little guy, doesn't look as though it will slow him down much, that's a good thing.

Poor lil dude! At least it doesn't appear to stop him from being a kid and doing the things he normally does :) I remember those old school casts that were made of plaster and you couldn't do anything with one of those!

I'm sure he will be glad when the cast comes off. I bet it get very hot and sweaty under there. It would drive me nuts!

That's great that he can get it wet though! :0)

Very cool color, but I don't see your name signed on the cast yet? That's really what casts are for right?

AWWWW man! This happened to Rachel last year during the summer and it didn't slow her down once. Wishing your little man a speedy recovery!

When I broke mine as a child, I couldn't get it wet. Times are much better!

Doesn't look too bothered by it. What a trooper!

What is he doing just wearing socks and spraying the hose around? Wet socks = wet feet!

Wow good thing for new technology. That would suck not being able to get wet all summer.
