Broken arm

Evan broke his arm today playing cricket! He was fielding and the other team hit was was looking to be a boundary shot. He lunged at the ball, stopping the boundary, but landed funny on his forearm. He was in quite a bit of pain, but I told him just to walk it off. When it didn’t seem to be getting any better, I took him to A&E, got the x-ray done and sure enough he broke his radius and ulna! A buckle fracture, which I guess is when the bone buckles under pressure.

7 weeks in a cast! Nice! :(

So much for him walking it off. :)
