Dr. Hubby decided we needed an xray and that going through the ER would ensure the quickest results.
Wild Child was most worried about the xray, but getting a ride in a wheelchair was exciting and made her smile.
Thank goodness for the tv in her ER room. It made the 4.5 hours pass a little quicker...
She was sent home with a temporary brace, an appointment with an orthopedist, and 2 very freaked out parents. I think it was the mention of "growth plate" that did it for us.
The next day we went for an MRI. This is Wild Child in the waiting room...she loves my iTouch. She fell asleep getting the MRI done...I did too...lol.
Yesterday Dr. Hubby and I took her to the orthopedist. She liked seeing her bones on her xrays.
She has a tibial fracture that extends into her growth plate so she got to pick which color she wanted for her new cast. The orthopedist said we shouldn't worry about the growth plate...it should be fine. That was REALLY good news.
The nurse even embellished her cast with a "casttoo" of a fairy. Our only worry left now is that there are ligament problems under the knee. We should know in a day or two...another pediatric specialist is reading the MRI.
Thank you for all the prayers...they are greatly appreciated!
