HHhhmmmmm .....

Yip mother instinct is normally right and sure enough. Although I did wonder this morning when he started using that hand a wee bit, but when he said it was still sore I thought an xray to check wouldn't hurt.
As it turns out he does have a good fracture in his lower arm about 1/3 way up from his wrist. As it is a bit further up there is the need for the longer cast around past his elbow. He was a trooper and didn't complain once in at the Urgent Doctors even when they were moving his arm round to plaster it. Need to xray again in 2 weeks to check it's healing well but he will need to keep the cast on for a good 6 weeks - so all going well will be off the week before Christmas!
Couldn't keep him at home, so he headed back to school after lunch and was Mr Popular in his class all afternoon - LOL! Everyone wanted to sit beside him, or walk with him!!!
He is very happy in himself and hasn't complained once - that's my boy :)

Hmmm - mum really does know best, doesn't she. Good for him on being so brave especially when it would have been really sore. Not so good timing at this time of year though and will be guessing that by Christmas he will be really happy to have it off.

Hope you go back and tell that first doctor he's no good! He looks so cute with his cast and how cool being Mr Popular at school ... not sure the pain of a broken arm is worth it though! Good on him for being brave and not complaining and good on you for listening to that Mother's instinct.

so pleased you trusted that instinct. Kids are so funny about war wounds.It's cool to have a cast these days!! Good on Finn for being so brave though throughout the whole ordeal.

Good on you Mich for listening to your mother's instinct! Mum does know best ;-)
He is a real trooper, what a brave dude! At school I was always wishing to break a bone because it looked like fun to have a cast! I still haven't broken one! LOL :-)
