The other week my 4yr old son was running around playing with his 2yr old sister, she hadnt slept all day and he was trying to entertain her while i was organising dinner. He ran past me then my 2 yr old followed him, when i hear a scream and cry like iv never ever heard before. I ran into the play room and look down to my son laying on the floor rolling around and my 2 yr old trying to comfort him. I thought ohhh he has just sprained it it will be all ok tomorrow.
So after a few hrs of ice pack and first aid, he fell asleep after dinner, not wanting to move much as it was too sore.
Later that night he woke up in so much pain i popped him in bed with me and he went back to sleep. The next morning, still the same thing, in pain but not as much, couldnt move his foot.
After a few more hrs i thought nahm this isnt right. So off to ED we went…… 7 hrs, not many people in the waiting room, a sore 4yr old and a screaming 2 yr old…. yea was a great day all round….. NOT.
Finally get looked at to be told it sounds like a sprain, go and get a Xray and come back. We do that…… have a look at xray to be told that the hairline fracture is a VEIN….. ( 3 drs looked at it….. im fuming)
Anyways we get sent home as they were certain it was a sprain. the next morning i thought nah its not right hes in pain still…. just as i was pulling into ED i get a phone call from the hospital sayin that it is actually fractured and that it needs to be plastered. well….. they didnt like me at all after that. 4 drs and 2 days of pain they put him thru.
hes on the mend now but still have to have checkups and another 3 weeks in plaster.
went to visit our family dr and saw the reports saying that they had put on the report that he was a girl. Like OMG!!!!
