My 4 year old grandson is a bit rambunctious. In Feb he broke his left arm. This time it is his right, and much worse. He goes into surgery in a little while.

When my kid was growing up, I happened to bump into one of the ER nurses in Krogers. She said, hey, where is your son? We have not seen him for a couple of weeks!
That made me doubt my parenting skills.
Best wishes for a quick recovery.

Yeah, his mother was a wild child too. She once broke her right arm jumping off the roof using a paper bag as a parachute, and experiment. Six weeks later she broke her left arm doing the same thing. I asked her why she jumped the second time, and she said she had to test her theory with a plastic shopping bag.

Surgery is done, pins are in. Joint and growth plates are not impacted. He fell at recess, and now he's pinned, so I'm going to call him "Pinned and Recessed."

My wife thinks he's going to become an MMA fighter. His mother is afraid it's true. Fortunately, his father doesn't sweat the small stuff and will continue to see the kid play like a boy.

Sorry to hear. Our girls both broke their arm (opposite sides) at age 3.
The oldest went over the top of a yoga ball & put her hands down to catch herself, buckle fracture.
Youngest fell off the side of the couch & landed on her side with her arm tucked under her.

Luckily, neither required a hard cast, just a cable tightened temp cast/brace.

Oldest broke her foot around the same time the youngest broke her arm. Luckily again, no hard cast needed, just a boot.

Hope yours heals up quickly.

Good luck to him and a speedy recovery.

My nephew broke his bad a few months ago. They put it in a cast and hoped it would start to heal ok. When they checked it after a week or so it wasn't healing right. He had to have surgery.

I can feel your pain so to speak, my 4 year old grandson is the same way almost without the broken bones but he has more than his share of cuts and bruises. Here is too a speedy recovery and the best to what ever he would decide to do in his life.

P.S. Sounds if he would be a good Marine.

Pinned and Recessed, that's good. Big Grin

My son broke one arm when he was 4 and the other when he was 6. The surgeon for the second one told me his arms hyperextend. If I hold my arms straight out, they are a straight angle with the elbow at the vertex. When my son holds his arms out, they form a 200 degree angle with the elbow at the vertex. If I fall and put my arms out, the force goes straight through my elbow. When he falls and puts his arms out, forearm acts as a lever on the elbow and something breaks.

Teach your grandson to tuck and roll when he falls.

When he heals, he'll be starting some form of martial art, most to learn to fall. Of course, his mother broke an arm at ballet class.
