My Poor Baby!
Thu, 09-18-2003 - 5:05pm
My poor 7 year old son yesterday at school broke his arm. Its the worse the Dr. has ever seen he says. He was swinging on the monkey bars at recess and fell and broke it at his elbow. They had to do surgery last night and put in 3 pins. I am so sad for him. He is in so much pain even taking tylonel with codine. I wish i could take his pain away. Has anyone else gone though this with there ADHD Children? He is very well behaved when on meds and i just feel so bad for him...

Just needed someone to talk to.

Well, maybe this is one of those things that is not ADHD-related? Little boys break bones all the time.

But, your poor little guy! And poor mom - so scary when our sweet little guys get hurt. Very sorry to hear that happened.

Oh noooo! Poor baby! Give him a big gentle hugs. He deserves it. I hope the med helps ease the pain some. I have not gone thru a bone breakage, so have no ideas for you there. With my son he would be taking his meds no matter what, so he would be taking the ADHD meds too. You don't want him messing up those pins. Call the doc and ask what they think.

Hope he feels better soon.
