Having an injured or unwell child is every parent's worst nightmare.
And on Wednesday evening, Channel Nine presenter David Campbell and his wife Lisa were living out the confronting reality of having an unwell child after their youngest son Billy, five, ended up at Sydney's Children Hospital with a fractured arm after falling off the couch.
The Today Extra host shared a series of photos of his son recovering in the emergency room with a cast on his arm, thanking the staff for all of their help.
"Thank you to Dr Mitch, Tori and Gentle Bek at @sydneychildrens for looking after Billy and his fractured arm," the 46-year-old began.
Adding: "Only tiny but still uncomfortable for him. He is impressed with the cast. A simple ninja kick off the couch was the cause. He will be back doing 🥋in no time. #billy."

"The wonder years mate! ❤️❤️❤️," Home And Away star Cameron Daddo commented.
"I can't wait to sign that cast .. Hope the little Ninja Warrior is ok 👊👊," Morning Show host Larry Emdur said.
"Impressive cast! Glad he's OK," Studio 10 presenter Angela Bishop added.

David's wife Lisa Campbell, who has been married to the presenter since 2008, also took to her Instagram Stories to repost David's message of thanks to the Children's Hospital.
Along with Billy, they are also the proud parents to Billy's twin sister Betty and ten-year-old son Leo.
"I really wanted to make sure I was a strong presence in my children's lives. It's vitally important for me to be around. I want my kids to know that I'm here for them," David, whose father is rocker Jimmy Branes, explained to parenting website The Fatherhood of being a parent.
