Have You Ever Broken A Bone In Your Body?

Our bodies are amazing! With proper treatment, a broken bone can heal itself. My grandson has broken his arm twice. My son has broken his collar bone. I fell on the ice when I lived in Denver, Colorado and cracked a rib. I was 6 months pregnant. So, it was a scary incident. One of my twin boys was hit by a car when he was riding his bike and broke his leg. Have you ever broken a bone? I know a lot of people who have.

@UncleJoe Well, I'm back from Virginia Beach. We were there from the 21st of October until today, the 28th. For some reason, we had no Wifi this time and it was very frustrating. I just got home about 2 hours ago and was so glad to get online. We had a great time and the weather was really good except for one evening it was a bit chilly. We went to Wannabe's Monday night and Wednesday night. We ate at several different restaurants and walked on the boardwalk and shopped and had a great time. My oldest son, who drove up from a fishing trip in Wilmington, NC, was able to spend a couple nights with us. In the evenings. we mostly played card games and board games and worked a jigsaw puzzle which we tried to finish last night but had to give up.

Yes, I have, my right elbow, several toes, ribs, and my legs. The first was because I was clumsy, toes because I was pregnant. I never caught them on anything when I wasn't. And my legs - right ankle - just turned it, left leg - wasn't watching where I was going in the dark and really did a number on it.

Oh my! You've had quite a few broken bones. It did remind me though, that I did break my little toe too. A crazy situation. During a terrible storm we lost out power and I went through the laundry room in the dark and hit my toe on a 25 pound box of cat litter that my daughter-in-law had put by the freezer. It hurt terribly and my whole foot turned blue, clear up to my ankle. I did NOT go to the doctor. I just taped it.
My bones have never broken, but I have seen many relatives of mine who have brittle bones as they have less calcium in their body. When calcium becomes less in our body ,our bones become brittle and break easily. So we must have sufficient amount of calcium in our body. Too much of calcium also is not good for our body.
Indeed our body is an amazing piece of work. I had an accident in 2003 and broke my wrist. The doctor said I might have to have some kind of metal inserted into my wrist. Thankfully, I didn't need to do that. They just put me in a cast and my wrist healed all by itself.
