That's one thing that we haven't had in our house, as far as the kids go. We've had many stitches, three of the four kids have had concussions from soccer, not wearing a helmet while on a scooter and falling off a sled onto an icy driveway.
I broke my wrist in two places and spent 10 weeks of one summer in casts. I broke mine when I was leaning on my horse and she shifted over to avoid another horse in her face. I caught my fall by putting my hand out. I didn't realize it was broken until I went to the ER three days later. (I have a high tolerance for pain.)
I'll be interested to hear other stories. I hope your son recovers soon! The one "good" part, if there is one, is casts come in such cool colors now!
