BBB (Brooks' Broken Bone)

One would think that having an orthopedic surgeon and pediatric nurse combo for parents, you would know if your kid had a broken bone. Well we failed that test. Brooks tripped over the soccer ball while playing on the hardwood floors at home. He hobbled around but still was playing and acting just fine. His limp seemed to get better and then he'd start up again. We thought since he was jumping and playing, that it was just a little sprain. Lo and behold (after 10 days and making a trip to an old UW ortho pal's Indy based office) that there was a tiny healing fracture in that poor foot. He thankfully needed no treatment. We always said he would be the family's first broken bone!
