On June 1, Cole and I attended a birthday party for a little boy in Cole's class. The party was at a bouncy house (jumper, astro jump)place. 45 min. into play time, Cole falls down next to me crying. He was the only one in the bouncy house that was moving. Long story short, he fractured his femur. A cast was put on for 5 1/2 weeks, a cast meant for crawling only. That was removed and the x-ray revealed that the bone had not healed. So we were told that he would need to wear the new walking cast for 2 to 3 weeks. Almost 3 weeks later (that would be today), the cast was removed and another x-ray was done. Still not 100% healed. So now he is in a new walking cast for 3 more weeks. This one will be taken off a few days before his 3rd birthday.
Cole was the 3rd kid in the ER that weekend at our hospital with a broken bone from being in one of the bouncy house things. At Cole's dentist appt. his dentist said that he has seen so many kids come in with broken teeth or missing teeth from being in one of those bouncy houses.
