Ok, so this weekend is the beginning of our school holidays here in Victoria. For us they didn't start the best. My oldest son had a playground accident at school on Thursday, and broke his leg. A bit inconvenient you say, but we will cope, just put a cast on .... no, that is not what happened because he broke his femur (bone between knee and hip, largest bone in the body) and it was a spiral fracture that is quite long.
So the doctors decided the best course of action would be an 'external frame with pins going through the skin to the bone (6 to be exact)'.
Here is my 'big man' with his leg in traction before surgery.
Here is a photo after surgery, showing the frame and my 'big man' and my 'little man' lending him support and eating all his goodies.
Needless to say, I won't be doing much stamping any time soon. He is still in hospital and we are not sure when he will be coming home. This frame will be on for about 8 weeks
