|Karlee first broken arm. This is the temp cast from the emergency room.|
|Waiting to 'see' the specialist|
|Looks like this arm needs a Pink cast!|
Karlee (age 4 1/2) tripped over her brother while playing outside before bedtime. She dislocated her elbow and has a hairline crack in the upper arm bone. We were at the hospital till 2:30am. Karlee didn't cry once.
When asked it it hurt, she would nod and say "A little". What a tough kid! (Grandma about passed out after just looking at the swelling- lol)
Today was the visit with the specialist to see if it needed pinned. He thinks because of swelling to do the cast and re- x-ray in a week. Prayers are that the growth plate is not damaged.
Karlee said that her arm feels a lot better now that it is 'bent' and in the cast, she likes her sling. I can see grandma making a few more in novelty prints (a Christmas one or two too?) I also want to make her a cloak, there is no way she can get her arm in a coat.
Now I know what to get her for Christmas- a pack of perm.markers- lol
