Look what funky new apparell my girl is sporting! Yes - you see right. Yesterday she fell off the swing at the park. It was quite spectacular actually. At the highest point of the ride, she flipped backwards, did a full somersault and landed splat! on her front with a thud. There were lots of tears that never quite subsided - but no visible damage or pain.
After a long day of cuddles and being carried from bed to lounge to table (she kept telling me to give her hugs - so I did) I finally put my foot down and got her up to go outside and play - and that's when I realised that she couldnt walk or weight bear on her right leg. So, off to the hospital, fearing lower back or pelvis damage (no manipulation of her legs hurt at all) and the X-ray told the story. A lovely squiggly line through her Tibia - or is it Fibula? (the big one) approx 1 inch below her right knee.
So now she has a full leg cast for 4-6 weeks! Oh no - how are we going to do this with an active 2 and a half year old??? Looks like it's going to be craft city around here for a while...
What exciting adventures is your life taking you on? Thanks for stopping by, X Me.
