David broke his right ring finger when he fell from his big brother’s bunk bed Saturday morning. He had been pretending his helium balloon was a fish on the end of a fishing line.
We had the X-ray taken on Monday and spoke to the doctor today. Since the fracture extended slightly into a growth plate, she sent us immediately to a physio to have a waterproof splint made.
From the doctor visit to the time at the physio, I felt as though everyone was treating my son just as they would their own. The physiotherapist even opened up the parts of her sewing machine so David could see where the thread came from and how it moved.
Upon discovering that we are homeschoolers, she also sent each of our kids home with their own bit of thermoplastic to heat up and re-mould at will.
And of course she let David choose all his own colours.
Purple, green, and yellow – he’s one super fellow!
At the end of the day, when David put on his pyjamas, his broken finger got its own pyjama, too.
A fitting end to a very exciting day!
