Let me recap: On Friday, she fell backwards out of a chair, after she calmed down she still wouldn't walk, so I took her to see the doctor. He didn't feel anything so he ordered x-rays. While he's looking at the x-rays, he gets paged and steps out...not before he says to me...x-rays look fine.
He steps back in and says....she has a small fracture in her fibula that the radiologist caught, that I couldn't see, she will need a cast. WHAT???? They will set it on Monday, keep her from moving around. He said - it is a simple break and they will put a short walking cast on her.
We had a superbowl party and there was 6 kids here so she figured out that she could crawl around the house, but not walk, which was fine with her.
Monday morning, at the dr. office - they show us the x-ray and the fracture is in her Tibia - the big bone in her leg and it starts right above her ankle and goes to right below her knee, therefore a full leg cast is necessary. WHAT???
Needless to say, I had a full leg cast and I immediately remember how miserable I was, borderline on needing some anti-depressants - so my eyes start watering. Kate isn't crying, her mother is.
I dry it up and when the lady starts to wrap the cast up, which she told Kate to hurry up and pick a color - Kate started crying. Come to think of it, she didn't give Kate a prize like she promised. She was very overwhelmed.
The doctor said she should heal up quickly and not have any permanent damage. He said that she will be walking by end of the week - most kids find ways to get around.
She is already scooting on her bottom...so funny. Please remember her and us in your prayers.
Kate in the waiting room, she has no idea.

The wrapping of the leg - we pulled out the passy for this one. Look how awesome that pink looks!
Home enjoying her passy...getting use to the cast.
