He decided to STAND on his little sister's RIDING toy and use it like a scooter. His uncle was downstairs with him when this happened.
Apparently, the toy went backwards, slipping from under Bryce. Needless to say, Bryce "flew" the opposite direction and landed primarily on his right hand (and his "strong" arm). The force of the fall and landing severely broke both the Ulna and Radius bones that are in the forearm. They are the two that connect at both ends of the lower arm and have a spacing between them in the middle (think of a Wishbone).
This was taken the night of the accident, after we got him home and resting a comfy as we could...
Little Sister, Skyler was making sure that her big "Bro-Bro" was okay and keeping him company.
Yesterday, it was "cast changing day". We spent THREE HOURS in that office, mainly waiting to go back. He got new x-ray's taken. Needless to say, there is a SMALL setback. The one that was broken the worse (I want to say the Radius), which was a hair-pin from requiring surgery that night, has dislodged out of place.
When the accident initially happened, Bryce had to have BOTH bones reset. He got NOTHING to help with the pain. But he took it like a trooper! And again, as the doctor had to mold the new cast to the arm, he reset that bone (without Bryce knowing). My boy let out a small whimper. But otherwise did a WONDERFUL job.
Here are some pictures of Bryce getting his old cast removed....
One last little "snip" with the cast saw and she was able to "crack it open" and free Bryce's arm.
Here is his new cast, that now fits to a T and he is happy as a clam....
Bryce had chosen "Duke University Blue" because he knows that the hospital there, Duke Univ. Medical Center was the place that saved his mom's eye, as well as her sight. Plus, it really helped that his Orthopeadist is an avide Blue Devils fan!
