Granddaughter - OT - Swinging Needed
She was coloring Easter Eggs this morning sitting on a bar stool and fell off. She broke the same arm in two places close to the previous break. It was a very bad break. The ER doctor set it the best he could and stabilized it. The X-rays show that the bone is barely connected. She will have to go to the orthopedic doctor Monday or Tuesday and he will decide if he needs to reset it or if she will have to have surgery.
Children get over things so quickly. She was up playing this afternoon. When she woke up after they tried to set it, she said "Oh, another cast." Daddy, Mommy and the grandparents don't get over it quite so fast!! It has been a wild day today.
I was doing my morning walk/run when my DS called me to tell me to come to the ER in another town. I told DGD#1, that she helped grandma make the fast time in a long time!! I was running back to my car.
Please keep her and her parents in your thoughts and prayers and that they will not have to do surgery on her little arm.
A PTH, calcium and vitamin D test might be worth having done - atleast the calcium and D - also phosporus might be a good idea also.
I just want to prevent any problems for her in the future.
good luck. Maybe they can put her on some vitamin D and make sure she drinks alot milk
I remember DS going to the ER 3x in 10 days. I knew someone was going to call DSS on us.

I know it seems to be harder on the parents/grandparents. When my DD was 4 she fell down the steps and gashed her chin open - I was a mess - she bounced right back.
