My 13 year old broke her foot today on a hike with a friend and her friends church group. I am at a loss as to how to make this any better for her. She is homeschooled with only one friend within walking distance and her events tend to be solo like guitar lessons. She started going to a church with her friend but I rather she not go any place without us till she is healed up. Her friend is more than welcome to come over of course. We are a military family and she has lost 3 great friends in this past year to moving alone. It can be hard. I know she is worried about her social life. I am too! She was starting to make some friends at the church.
I have never had a child with a broke bone. She might need surgery we have been told on her foot, two bones broken in it, one very badly. She has the master bedroom up stairs but it is a very tall loft bed, she can't get in it in her shape now. Not to mention the stairs are thin in this historic home. So I have her on the sofa close to a bathroom and will set her up there as best we can.
What else can I do for her? I called her friend to make sure she knows she is welcome to come by tomorrow to hang out. I am going to try to get my daughters desk top down stairs for her so she can keep doing some of her homeschooling on it. She also like the games SIMS and I had planned to get her an expansion she wanted for it to help distract her. Friends suggested chocolate and icecream! LOL
Any more ideas on how I help make this any better for her?
