My 3yr old son was put into a hip spica cast last week after breaking his femur. So far he's been doing okay, but I'm concerned about a couple of things and wondering if anyone out there had experience with their kids in a cast like this.
First off he is not eating much. Before the cast he had a great appetite, now I can usually get him to eat only one full meal and he picks through out the day.
Also, he is not sleeping well at night. He's up almost all night whining and crying, but half asleep and wont/can't tell me whats wrong. Last night he complained of a stomachache and a headache. Are those two things normal for a kid in a cast like this?
Anyone have any advice for me regarding helping him get through these next 6 weeks? Or helping me and my husband get through these next 6 weeks? I also have a teething toddler I'm dealing with at night, and neither of them want Daddy so I'm up all night and already at my wits end!
