Anytime I hear “broken leg”, I am sent back to the first day of school in fall of 2013. It was Olivia’s first day of school. 20 minutes into the day, she fell from a fireman’s pole and broke her leg. In 3 pieces. Fibula and Tibia. It was awful.
When I asked our orthopedist if there was anything I could do to prevent ever being in this situation again (calcium supplements? more milk? A plastic bubble?) She said – the only way to ensure you’ll be back here is to let her onto a trampoline.
Today’s HealthWatch brings that recommendation back to the forefront of my mind. What do you think? Will you be reevaluating trampolines and your family?
