Isabel's Pretty Pink Cast

So Isabel has a pretty pink cast that she picked out (no hesitation, they gave her a key ring full of colors, and she chose pink in 2 seconds). The cast goes from her hip all the way to her toes. She doesn't need surgery, just had to have the specialist look at it to make sure it was set right. The instacare put a splint along the back of her leg with a soft cast around the whole leg. The surgeon had his nurses put a hard cast on this morning at a 90 degree angle at her knee. The angle is so she won't try to put weight on it or walk on it. She is kind of freaking out, she's already asked us to take it off several times. She doesn't understand why she can't stand up or walk. This should be an interesting 4 weeks with this cast, then 2-3 more weeks with a walking cast. They will x-ray it again this coming Wed to make sure it's set right. Lots of sponge baths and movies, books, and ice cream. We'll get through it...this too shall pass.

Just get lots of drugs, not for her, for you! Ha Ha Ha. Seriously, I'm so sorry, there's nothing worse than a hurt or sick child. Good luck, let us know if we can help.

What happened??? I tried to read down to previous posts to see if you had mentioned it..but I couldn't see it? Wow! That's quite the cast! I'm sure that makes daily tasks quite a chore! What a sweet little thing--she does deserve lots of ice cream and movies!

Ah. Never mind. I found it! (OUCH!) Sheesh Holly. You are a true trooper...Being at the gym so early with your little girl home with a cast up to her hip! (I'd probably want to get away for a while too!)
