    I broke my arm when I was 6 yrs old by jumping off of a chair backwards while playing with my childhood friend Christina. I had to have surgery and had pins put in it. This happened at the very beginning of summer so I spent the whole summer with a cast on while all the other kids went swimming and had fun. My arm is perfectly normal now.
