~Cast is off
~She can move her leg
~Stopped for some "cast off" treats (chosen were a happy face cookie and a sprinkle doughnut)
~Asked for chicken nuggets for her special cast off day dinner
~Fracture has not healed entirely, and was actually worse than I originally thought :( .
~In a Knee Immobilizer for 3 more weeks (but it's not a cast, at least) to be sure she won't twist her leg wrong or re-injure it. This can come off for baths, sleeping and swimming.
~She is a little grumpy, like the first few days after the initial injury, because it still hurts to move it after being in one position for 3 weeks. Has not walked much yet. (Hoping that will get up to the good section soon and say "walking").
~My camera fell on the ground and BROKE on the way into the X-ray room.
I can still get the pictures off the memory card, and here are a few cast pictures from the last few days.
|hanging out at the park on a great January day. The cast didn't slow down her fun!|
|Playing "store" on my bed. She was the shopkeeper...in my shirt :). |
The calculator she is holding was the cash register I think.
|Angry birds is fun for these girls!|
|Time to get the cast off. Ev was uncertain about it, and very frightened.|
|Studying Mr. Tom's (the guy cutting the cast off) movements like a hawk. A nervous hawk.|
|Happy girls on our way to the hospital.|
Tomorrow she is having show and tell AND pajama day at school. That will give her something fun to look forward to after the pain she went through today!
