At work this afternoon waiting to call it quits at 5 and my wife calls me. Little girl fell off bed and broke her arm. She has a small fracture in her upper arm. She is tough though. She has it in a sling and tied to her chest. She goes in Wednesday and see about getting a cast. She will be in a cast for her first day of school.

I told her to tell the kids you think this looks bad you oughta see the other guy!

OH MY!

hope she heals quick.

Had a friend who's little boy broke his arm on a trampoline and after the two hour ride together in the car to Kansas City from here the cops separated the three of them and both parents each got a three hour "interview" by the police.  The dad was in a different county @ work when it happened.   :(

I've heard of similar horror stories.  Sadly, it is the real yellow bellied losers who give cases like that the negative eye when 99.9% of the time it is absolutely innocent.

I fell off a teeter-totter back in 1950 and broke an arm just above the elbow. They had to anesthetise me to set it, wore a plaster . cast for eight weeks from just below the shoulder to over my hand, just the fingers sticking out--- absolutely no ill effects. Your little girl should be fine. Things have improved tremendously in the cast-setting field in the last sixty four years

This has definitely not been your year. Kids this age recover well without any complications. I agree with Trowel it won't rain forever, sunshine is in the horizon.

Now they are saying that possibly her bone is displaced and may need to have a surgery.  Wife is all upset.  I told her it's not that big of a deal.  Instead of recovering in 6 to 8 weeks she will be about 16 weeks.  But she is tough, hasn't complained much at all really.

Young as she is, I doubt that even the surgery recovery time will be serious.

 

I wish we could all sign her cast. :thumbs:

 

All except Cat.  Looking at that autograph all night would probably give the poor thing nightmares.
