The hospital can see no obvious injury on Elliott, however they suspect a thing they call the ‘Toddler Fracture’
Toddler’s fractures or childhood accidental spiral tibial (CAST) fractures are bone fractures of the distal (lower) part of the shin bone (tibia) in toddlers (aged 9 months-3 years) and other young children (less than 8 years). The fracture involves the distal third to distal half of the tibia, is undisplaced and has a spiral pattern. It occurs after low-energy trauma, sometimes with a rotational component.
So they are going to put a cast on his leg ;(
Poor wee mite.
