    Quote:Generic for vicodin. I am sure the does is small enough and it will work to keep him comfortable.

    Quote:It will definitely help with the pain. Children are chronically undermedicated for pain, it is a huge problem with the medical system, so at least the doctors ponied up some real painkillers, since even if he has a cast on now (or a temp one until swelling goes down), he'll still be in pain.

    Anyone who has ever had a broken bone knows this is true. Even a broken toe can be sooo painful it is hard to eat anything. Poor kid. How is Ayden holding up? And his mother?

    awwwww, I'm sorry. [​IMG] I hope your nephew will be feeling better soon. Its good to have Grandma there to take care of the little ones. Hope baby Ayden is feeling well soon as well.

    the hospital sent him home ( he lost his insuranse a couple months ago) ... the only way are local bone specialist would see him on payment plans is because my sister broke down crying to them)
