Oh poor you and especially poor ds. But you can't realistically go with him and leave dh with the baby, try not to worry about them. He will be fine.

GrimmaTheNome Mon 08-Jun-09 18:33:55

sad owwww poor DS.

You're certainly not useless, you're BFing a new baby aren't you? DP and the medics will take care of your DS till he gets home for a cuddle.

I know he just looked very shook up and he is usually ard .

ouch indeed.

psychomum5 Mon 08-Jun-09 18:37:40

Comewhinewithme Mon 08-Jun-09 18:40:11

CWWM - he will be fine, your BF the baby so your not useless.

He is back and ok with a huge bandage on his hand .

Hairline fracture in his little finger and he is on AB's the nail should fall off on it's own <boak> within a couple of days .

Thankyou all for keeping me company while I panicked grin.

Oh, lots of sympathy from me, I did this to my toenail, it is sooo painful for such a small looking injury. It may well fall off, and it will die before it does, which looks really grim, and if you jog it it will hurt.

But it is very cool watching the new nail grow ingrin

psychomum5 Mon 08-Jun-09 22:08:22

oooh, ouch ouch ouch.

give him sympahty from me, I have done that (altho on my toes).....tis very sore, and throbs!

misdee Mon 08-Jun-09 22:08:49


glad his is ok and no op for him.

dd3 fingers had to be fixed under GA when she had an accident with a door. she had open fractures due to the bleeding. it was not nice at all.

hope he's feeling much perkier in the morning smile.

i managed to lose 2 nails when i was younger, eew.

Can I ask a silly question?

When the nail grows back, does it kind of slide along from the bed and creep up the finger, or does it harden on the nail bed all at once?

JackBauer Tue 09-Jun-09 14:32:10

It grow up from the cuticle at the base and sort of creeps up.
And it isn't a silly question, DH and I were fascinated by it as we had no clue how it was going to work!
