Hello Everyone. On 10/10/06, my little boy, Sebastian, broke his arm. A cable box fell on him. Trust me I feel bad enough without anyone telling me what a bad mommy I am. He had a computed fracture of his ulna and he broke his radius. He is ok now. Luckily, a surgeon was able to manually put the bones back together. At first glance they were going to put a rod and pins in his arm. He has a heavy fiberglass cast on now. My problem is he needs to be confined to a cage or crate for 3 weeks. Even with a severely broken arm, he jumped from the floor to the top of the refrigerator. I have tried to make the crate as comfortable as possible. But, all that he wants to do is get up high and hide. I bought him an orthopedic bed, a low-lipped litter box and raised his food so, he does not and he cannot bend down. I put his brother in for a few minutes at a time to help sebastian not feel lonely. Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?
