On Saturday, our son (3 years old) broke his femur going down a big inflatable slide. He now has a cast from his right ankle, up around his waist, and back down his left leg. They have to immoblize his knee, and both hips for him to heal correctly. It's the total pits for him.
On the up side, no vascular or nerve damage as far as they can tell, and they don't think they'll have to put any screws or plates in for it to heal correctly.
Well, he's yelling for me so I must go. He's going to be SO spoiled!
