It's broken. Her poor elbow is cracked. Little Miss suffered the whole weekend with a sling and some Tylenol. First thing Monday morning we were at a very reputable orthopedic who caught the crack immediately. Good news...cast is only on for 4 weeks. Bad news...no water for 4 weeks. She wasn't eligible for a waterproof cast since it has a bend. She handled it so well. Mainly, because she knows this earns her special dates with Grammy. Grammy made that known about 2.5 seconds after the cast went on her tiny arm.
For right now, we're just learning the art of living with a cast. The lack of mobility, knocking stuff over, taking baths, and itching the itchies. All things considered she is doing great! The part that makes me the most sad is she is just now letting us in on how much pain she experienced over the weekend.
So as life tries to resume to normal, I wanted to leave you with a menu. I sure hope your week has begun WAY better than ours. Aye, aye, aye!
