(SNews) – Former First Daughter Ivanka Trump took to Instagram to reveal that her son Theo was rushed to the hospital after suffering an accident at school. To make it a true nightmare scenario, Ivanka said she was “an hour away” when she got the call from his school that he had broken his wrist.
She said: “This week I received a call from the school nurse that every parent dreads. My 6-year-old son Theo broke his wrist while playing soccer. Since I was over an hour’s drive away, an ambulance took Theo, accompanied by the school nurse, to the closest hospital.
“Jared and I raced to meet him, Jared arriving at the same time as the ambulance and me getting there a few minutes later. It was a bad break, but the capable EMT, doctors, nurses and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital staff cared for Theo tenderly and professionally.
“Theo’s visit culminated with two ice pops, which led to him declaring “this is the best day ever! The nurse turned to me and said, “This is why I’m in pediatrics!
“No adult in the emergency room has ever said something like that when given an ice pop.
“Jared and I are so grateful to the doctors, nurses, EMTs, and hospital staff who cared for our son.
“With gratitude in our hearts, we have made a donation to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.
