hi friends- I know lots of folks have kids on this forum so I thought I’d ask for your experiences…
my DD broke her arm yesterday at camp. Broke both arm bones near the wrist. (one partially displaced, the other just cracked.) We go to the orthopedist this afternoon to get a hard cast. (she’s in a temporary cast/ sling right now.) it is her right arm, and she’s right handed.
Somehow I never broke a bone growing up. So I’m not sure what the drill is. Do they have water resistant casts these days? If I put a plastic bag over the cast and secure it with a rubber band or something, will she be able to splash in the baby pool? what about baths/showers?
How do I help her manage with her left hand? are we doomed to finger food for the next few weeks?
Do you have any tips/ suggestions for anything else I haven’t even thought of?
Thanks in advance, Marykz
