My oldest grandson[Jose]was playing with some rocks this evening and dropped one on his finger,so we made the 2nd trip to the ER in a month[1st time was for bump on his head about 2 weeks ago].He broke the tip off his 3rd finger bone and had to have glue and stiri strips.He did amazingly well for the dr for a child with SENSORY INTEGRATION.Him being given LORATAB 5 ELIXOR helped I would say.Now he has to wear a splint on his finger for about 6 weeks and keep it clean and dry.There lies the problem:he wants to put it in his mouth and pull the strings out of the gauze[he has always wanted to pull strings out of towels and wash cloths and until now I saw no harm in letting him since it seamed to calm him].I have changed the gauze 5 times since 8:00 pm.How do I keep him from doing this?He doesn't understand when I fuss at him for doing it and he gets really upset.He has also bit his finger a couple of time and started it bleeding again.
