  1. We have down the same road. Second son fell off his motorcycle and hurt his arm. We moved it but he didn’t complain much. We ate dinner, did dishes and finally decided to get it checked. Went to ER and even DR thought nothing was wrong. X-rays showed a break. So no need to rush unless bone sticking out!

  2. I fell and broke my foot coming out of the car after seeing Christmas lights one year cause my sister wouldn’t even wait 5 minutes to let me get my foot on the ground after it fell asleep and my parents waited till the weekend was over before I went to the doctor to so I know how Blayke feels…I complained all weekend long and finally Monday came and my mom took me in and got me seen and sure enough it was broke in 2 spots…my sister felt so bad but that’s ok she had to wait on me for 3 weeks straight…per parents orders….
