    • When my daughter was 4 she fell off the monkey bars straight onto her elbow as it was pointing directly toward the ground.  She hit at such a perfect angle that her bone snapped in two.  Her arm was just hanging and a piece was sticking through her tissue.  So disgusting!  Needless to say I took her to Urgent Care and the doctor took one look at her and said she needs surgery ASAP.  She also, had rods and pins in her little bity arm.  She had her cast for at least 6 weeks and did not suffer from residual nerve damage.  Thankfully!tongue out
