Unfortunately, we learned today that going down a slide on a lap isn't necessarily safer! Aidan's left leg got caught and twisted, and now the poor fellow has a tibia with a spiral fracture and a cast on his entire leg. He is not allowed to bear weight on his leg for the next 4-6 weeks. The poor fellow. He is such a trooper, too. I swear if it had been Brendan he would have been having a fit, but we almost weren't sure if there was anything wrong with Aidan. He kept saying "hurt" when I touched his leg and he was crying, so I knew to take him in. The doctor said that they see this injury a lot from a kid going down a slide on a lap, so there's my warning to you all.
Now, we have to figure out how to do everything with a cast on. I have no idea how to dress him, and we have to somehow give him a sponge bath every night instead of a real one. It should be interesting! Poor guy.
Notice how nice the orthopedic nurse was to put a cast on Grover's leg, too!
I have to thank my mom and sister for watching Brendan while we took Aidan to the urgent care. Thanks!
