i was just pulling up in to the car park I park in at work when I got a call from the school saying he had had a fall off the play equipment and after having ice on it for 1/2 hour but they werent comfortable sending him back out as he was obviously in discomfort. I said, pfft it wont be broken and she said yeah there isnt swelling so i dont think so either.
My dad picked him up and I met him at my mums house and saw the arm and said its broken. The swelling was too much in an isolated area to be a sprain.
Took him straight down to the medical centre where a new dr i havent seen before looked at his arm and said...yep its broken and sent me across the road for xrays. 20mins later we were back in the surgery getting a temporary cast put on cause the swelling needs time to go down before they put the fibreglass cast on. He gets that on Monday. He was an awesome Dr and I will see him again. My Dr left recently to look after his sick wife and I was seeing an old Dr who is great but very close to retirement.
He has a green stick break which in his case has sort of crushed his bone together but didnt snap right through thankfully. If it had it means surgery.

Oh no poor Ben! I can relate to having a broken arm right in the middle of summer time! When I was about 4 I fell off my bike and my arm hit a piece of wood as I fell and I broke both bones in my left arm, then 6 weeks after I had it out of plaster, we were in school, and I tripped on the carpet while we were hopping and broke the same arm! What are the odds? Needless to say I spent most of the summer with a plastic bag over my arm

omg Danni, how unlucky was that
My thoughts on ben is....how the hell can you ride BMX without any serious injury but fall off equipment at school and break hahahaha.
He is miserable right now, struggling to get to sleep comfortably. Poor kid....and last year the school missed their swimming lessons cause the pool was closed for renos. This year he cant do them cause of his arm. OMG.
Trust Ben to find the perfect way to get more time off school. 8 days for German Measles wasnt enough apparently. He cant go to school till he gets his full cast :S
