swellmomma Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 (edited) Apparently as she and ds13 were leaving the yard to ride bikes to a friend's house dd fell of her bike directly in front of ds. He could not stop in time and rode over her upper arm. From the elbow to the shoulder on the backside of her upper arm she now has tire treads. Currently it is in a sling with an ice pack on it. The upper arm is bright red, and has some swelling. Does not appear to be broken, but about 1/2" above the elbow she has a lump, I assume it is the muscle swollen from the trauma. Told her if it is still hurting this bad in 30 minutes we will head to the ER for xrays to double check it. Never thought I would see the day that my kid would have actual tire tread marks across a body part. I thought that was only possible in the cartoons. As I was putting it up in the sling I was singing "c got run over by a bike, riding to her friend's house tonight..." I couldn't help but make a joke about it. FTR it was raining earlier so his tire was wet and that's how it left the marks. Edited June 27, 2012 by swellmomma typos Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
