What a day. DS12 ended up breaking his wrist at all star baseball practice last night and getting splinted at an urgent care. He saw an orthopedic doctor and got a cast on it today. He sees a pediatric specialist Wednesday. He tore a piece of bone/tendon and fractured his wrist. The doctor last night said his wrist could possibly just heal on it's own with only a splint, but the doctor today said if it wasn't casted he could need surgery if he injured it again. Unfortunately they do not do any casts that are waterproof. We bought a special bag to cover it for showers. We are really hoping he has it off in time for the cruise. The doctor said with how fast kids heal, he may be out of it quicker than the 3 weeks he estimates. If not, he'll have to keep it on the entire cruise. Not so sure he'll be allowed at the water park in Turkey. We have a beach day planned after sightseeing in Athens too. I have a 16 year old son and neither has ever had a broken bone or needed stitches and this was the last thing we expected. Just really glad it's not worse! The doctor even said he can go to overnight football camp he has had booked since last year and watch/run drills with no contact. Not so sure we will let him though. Fortunately he's not in pain and was able to freely move his hand/wrist up and down and side to side. Had it not been for swelling, we'd have never known he needed an xray. Here's hoping for no more pre-cruise unwanted surprises!

My biggest fear. I have a sports player too. I hope he's better soon.

DD (13) is going through her outfits and is saying she needs to know this minute () which night of the cruise is formal night. I cannot recall seeing that info yet - anyone have a guess on formal and semi-formal nights?

Thank you!
Jennifer

Hope your son heals quickly! Is there a reason they wouldn't put him in a waterproof cast?

We had a stressful week with my son also. He fell during his playoff basketball game with ONE minute left to play. He landed on his elbow and was in a lot of pain. We took him to urgent care and they took xrays. There was a shadow on the bone so they put him in a splint. Had to take him to the orthopedic and he said no cast would be necessary and that it wasn't broken but most likely the bone is bruised, which can take 4-8 weeks to heal! Who knew!

The injured elbow was on his "writing" arm, which really stressed me out because 2 days later he was having his math final. Kind of hard to do math calculations without being able to write. The school got him a "scribe" but he said it was a little confusing trying to communicate what he wanted written down and try to do the calculations...ugh!! So happy this week is over!

Not sure I'm looking forward to any of my boys playing basketball on the ship or any sport before we leave for that matter!

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear this. Hopefully he will have his cast off before the cruise. I wonder if somehow they could put a waterproof cast on (even though they said they don't have that), like if you could find a different orthopedic doctor that would do that? I know they have them.

Well, let's hope for fast healing!!! Poor little guy!! I sure hope he will be fine by the cruise!

If he tore a tendon that will take longer to heal than a broken bone (but hopefully the tendon is fine!!) I'd much rather have a broken bone than a torn tendon for sure (if I had to choose!). But, a fracture typically, it's 6-8 weeks, but it might be small fractures (if they are clean fractures) can take less, and it sounds like this might be the case for your son!! I hope so!!! And, children do heal faster, I think, so that is a positive. Hopefully they can figure out a waterproof cast of some sort, or some sort of way he can do all the water activities if he is still in a cast on the cruise. Hang in there!!

If it's any consolation, three out of our six Disney cruises we've been on, either DH or I was injured literally JUST before we left for the cruise or on the cruise itself (injuries were broken bones, torn ligaments, bone bruises... yes, sounds really crazy, but really was just dumb luck!) And, we just had to roll with the punches, and alter a lot of plans. But, I always say if I had to be injured, I'd rather be dealing with an injury on a Disney cruise ship than having to deal with an injury at home! Just because everything just seems so much better no matter what life has thrown you when you're on a Disney Cruise ship! Although, I know it's way different for 12 year old, than it is for an adult.

Hang in there... Keep us posted! I sure hope it all heals fast and all will be good on the ship!

Oh man, sorry to hear about this, too. But, so glad it's not a broken bone. A bone bruise can hurt just as bad as a broken bone (I know!), and takes as long as a broken bone to heal (which I also didn't know, until I had a bone bruise!), but the good news is that with a bone bruise, you can still be mobile, but it just hurts.

If it is a bone bruise, he should be feeling lots better by cruise, and will probably just have twinges of pain here and there, but it does get better each week, but does take time to heal. So, he will need to be gentle, but it sounds like he already is. Glad he made it through is Math final!

Ok, nobody else is allowed to get hurt before, or during the cruise!!!

By the way, just a tip... if anyone needs to use ice on the plane for an injury (to ice the injury), you can't get gel ice packs through security, BUT those first aid ice packs that you twist and they suddenly get cold, you can get those through security, because they aren't liquid or gel before you twist them. They just have these beads inside of them that turn cold instantly once you twist them. So, if anyone needs to ice an injury on the plane that is how you do it! With one of my injuries that I got just a week before we left for our Panama Canal cruise (with Disney), I needed to ice for the 6 hour flight to Florida, and my orthopedic doctor told me I could get those instant ice packs through security with no problem! I would not have thought of that on my own! I was so grateful for the suggestion. They only stay cold for 30 minutes, so I took a roller carry-on suitcase, and filled it with those instant first aid ice packs so I had PLENTY of ice packs to ice my injury on the plane. Went through security with no problems at all! And, I had some left over, so when we flew back, didn't have a problem again with security and the instant ice packs, so they went through fine at two different major airports.

Anyway, just a tip for anyone who might need to deal with icing on a plane!!
