My 8-year old son managed to break both of this wrists yesterday falling off a swing at school. Yep! The kid’s got talent! Why break only one wrist?! Anybody can do that.
So we got the bathroom thing worked out at school. The nurse has a private bathroom and can assist as needed. We got other hygiene tips from the orthopedist.
But what the heck can the poor kid eat?! Last night we didn’t know his left wrist was broken (hadn’t seen the orthopedist yet), just thought it was sore. So he managed to eat with a fork using his left hand. But today his entire right arm is in a cast and the left is in a splint!
Anybody been here before?! Any advice?!
