I Am A Bigger Baby Than My Baby!

This kiddo is special. She has been a trooper in this broken leg adventure. Her spirit is not broken...she just brings that big ol' pink cast along for the ride. Today we went back to the orthopedist. It's been 3 weeks and 2 days since "the break."

The first thing they did was bring out a saw. I then realized Dr. Hubby and I shouldn't have teased her last night with a large power tool....lol. The look on her face says it all.

Cutie had to see everything that was going on. She told the nurse "Be careful. Don't hurt Wild Child." It was so precious I totally teared up.

Wild Child said it felt "really weird." Her little heel was so dry. I washed her leg and they took 2 xrays. The doc said she is "healing very well."

He sent her home with the back part of her cast wrapped in an ace bandage. Hallelujah! She can take a bubble bath. But she can't walk on it for 2 more weeks. She has to take it off and exercise it a couple times a day. She handled the news of needing her wheelchair 2 more weeks just fine. I, however, wanted to throw myself in the floor and roll around kicking and screaming.

Dear Dr. Orthopedist Man,
By the end of two more weeks I am going to need a referral. Lifting a 5 year old is making me old and creaky. My back is no longer going to be able to function...I am going to need a new one.

YAY!!!! I'm so happy that she's on the downhill stretch!

Ya, lifting her must be hard.
I feel bad for anyone that has back issues.

I am glad she is doing so well! Boy that three weeks went by super fast for me (giggle) - Sorry your back is hurting!!
It'll be over soon...Chocolate eat lots of chocolate.

I'm glad she got it off- she sure seems happy! Good luck to you (and your back) for the next 2 weeks.

So glad she is healing well! Hope the 2 weeks go quickly for you.

Tip of the day: Don't keep the cast. I broke my arm in 1983 and my mom sent me home with a box last summer and it had my cast in it. It was pretty nasty.

Glad she got it off!

I'm laughing that Vanessa's mom kept her cast.

Glad she's healing! sorry you still have to lift her.

What a brave girl - I FREAKED when they brought the saw out to take off Luka's.

And listen to Vanessa. That could get just plain gross : )
