I'm so sorry sad Your poor little boy. How is he now? I hope you are all managing okay - I don't know the circumstances of you being at hospital, but I hope everything is going okay. I can only imagine how stressful it must be.

I am sorry to hear this. My ds had an accident when he was 5 involving a blow to the nose. He didn't break his nose but developed a septal abscess which required surgery.

Keep an eye out for a tempertaure or thickening of his nasal lining.

Hopefully he hasn't broken it nor will develop an abscess.

Poor little thing, hope you both ok.

His poor little nose is so bruised and not so little sad He is really struggling to breathe through it tonight I can hear all sorts of grunts and snuffles down the monitor.

Oh, bless his heart. I hope it goes okay on Monday and he doesn't need surgery on his nose.

I'm very glad you got some good news regarding DD1 - fingers crossed you will get some similar good news for your DS2 on Monday smile

No surgery needed yet!! smile
Not got any straight answers to whether its broken or not as they strongly suspect it is but treatment wouldn't change. We have got to go back in 2 months for follow up.
