My Sweetie Pie had an accident yesterday. He tried to close the tailgate on my old red truck. It is very difficult to latch. While he was standing on the bumper, the tailgate fell back open pushing him to the ground. He landed hard on his bottom. For the rest of the night he had difficulty walking correctly and sitting down. He also complained of pain when he tried to bend over, if he coughed or sneezed and if he shifted his weight quickly.
This morning he was still hurting so I took him to the Doctor. The X-Ray showed a crack in his tailbone. It will take 4 to 6 weeks to heal completely. He will have to take it easy and be careful not to re-injure the area in the mean time. Tonight I will make him a cushion that he can take to school to sit on and tomorrow I will go and talk with his teachers. The biggest concerns will be PE and recess. Today I have been administering tender love, care and the proper medicine.... Tylenol, chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles, gummy bears and jelly beans.
We would certainly appreciate it if you guys could say a little prayer that he heals quickly and doesn't get too frustrated with not being able to be as active as he is used to.
Thank you:-) ~Rhonda
