If Your Child Breaks a Bone Featured
This is one of those posts that, as a parent, I hope you never have to use. I hope you can file it away on a Pinterest board or in a favorites menu and never have to use it. In all honesty, I wish I didn't have to write it.
My son has another broken bone this summer. It's his 5th fracture in 2 years. (Oh, and my daughter was also in a cast last summer).
Yes, we've had him tested - for calcium deficiency, for Vitamin D deficiency, for brittle bone disease -- you name it and they ran a test, checked the scans and referred to multiple physicians. But the only answer we have is that "he's growing quickly and the bones haven't filled in yet". Not much comfort to any of us right now.
My main reason for writing this post is to let other parents know what we've learn about living with casts.
