Trying not to panic

WRT this-

Ds2 is crying. In a bit of a state saying his leg hurt. He did have a fall off the trike at playschool but walked home fine. I asked if he wanted some medicine as he seemed genuinely in pain. DH said he was probbaly fine as he had walked home. DS2 still crying and then asked for medicine. I didn't really want to give Calpol without a definite need so gave him a spoon of apple and ginger juice instead. Happy boy, calm and settling down to sleep now.

He has woken up, crying his leg hurts, refusing to stand, rushing to school now, what do I do?

Get him to A&E. And give him something for the pain.

Thanks all.

Back now. There would have been no one to get my other children.

DS2 turned down the chance to go in the buggy and walked into the playground. He then scared me half to death by going off to the far side to where the field is, so I think he is okay. Will keep a clkose eye though. Can children carry on with broken bones?

Second scare when he came to me with stuff all over his hands, teacher said it looked like sick. I am quizzing the TA about times between falls and being sick. DS2 tells me it is someones yogurt! hmm Kids!
