Luckily, when they are little, the bones heal really fast, as in 4-6 weeks.  I say that as someone who shattered her lower leg in her 50s. Not a fun time at any age, but  quickly over when they are little.

ps can I just say that time stood still when  we had  the Duke's shoulder vs Vail mountain, CO....which was only 7 months before disaster struck me. Also plates and screws  for him followed up by an intractable DVT from calf to groin.

But did you decorate his cast, thatís what I want to know. ;-)

Wait , do you even get a cast with a broken shoulder?

more likely plates, screws and a sling - occasionally put a forearm cast on to help with upper arm traction in the early days (but that treatment probably went out with the ark)

LOL, now I envision and envy the Duke's fabulously embellished cast - rhinestones and tiara-like, he must have dazzled the orthopedic surgeons...

Am I remembering correctly that the Duchess used to embellish figure-skating costumes?  If so, the Duke must have been the most festive and fancy patient on the block!

I still do! I just finished one over the weekend. Sadly, the Duke had nothing cast wise to embellish, just lots of titanium internal fixation.. Unfortunately, they sent us home to NY on day 3 post surgery and he ended up with quite the DVT. Completely occluded from ankle to groin, like a cork in the bottle. Said I "A friend of mine just had one of these and they snaked  it out the same day". "no, no" said the vascular surgeon. "we prefer to treat it medically in case a piece breaks off. Over the next few months, it will gradually go away on the anti-coagulants." Said I "Can you please run a clotting panel." "No, no need". 3 Month check = 1% improvement. 6 month check = no further improvement. Said I "Ok, we tried it your way, can you please set up the the snake". "No, no. We would have had to do that in the first 2 weeks". Dead, cold silence. Then "You mean when I asked you to? Can you now please run the clotting panel I asked you to?" Turns out he does have a familial clotting insufficiency. I HATE doctors who refuse on principal to check things you ask about, just because they are the DOCTOR and you are the lowly patient.

Duchess...how was that clot resolved??  My goodness what a nightmare on top of an already dreadful situation.

Also, I've been reading that Gabriella "sprained her leg" at school after falling while playing.  Poor thing, sometimes (so I've heard) sprains can be worse than breaks.  I've never seen a cast for a sprain, but then she's a little, active girl, so this may be the best way to ensure it stays immobile.
