6 Years old today!

First broken bone

Waiting at the hospitalCole was playing in the playground outside his karate class. This is what we normally do after class on nice days, he loves to climb all over the equipment and go down the slides. He was sharing a spinning wheel (has replaced monkey bars in many playgrounds) with a friend and falls. This has happened before, but this time he landed on his arm instead of his feet. He complained that it hurt but there were no lumps or bumps and he could wiggle his fingers so I just took him home, gave him some advil and let him watch some TV. I figured it was a sprain or strain and would get better on it’s own.

When Hubby got home he took one look at Cole’s arm and noticed how swollen the elbow was. It was decided to take him in and get that elbow x-rayed.

First castAfter a few hours in the hospital it was determined that the humerus was fractured near his elbow and he would need a cast. The doctor on call in emergency was pretty confident that we would only need to leave it on for 2 weeks. Cole was pretty freaked, he had NO idea what a cast was, but he knew he didn’t want one! Once he saw what it was and noticed that it didn’t hurt as much now that he didn’t have to hold his arm up with his other hand he was a bit happier. Cole declared this his Worst Birthday Ever! We kinda agree, at least he had his pool party before he broke his arm
