Tough Break!!!

I am soooooo glad that we spent last weekend in the pool because it will be a while before we swim again! Lily Wen broke her elbow. She was doing what she loves most during recess which is climbing the monkey bars when she slipped and fell. She is in this temporary splint until the 14th and then, we will take more x-rays. The orthopedist stated that he would probably need to put a cast on her until the end of the month.



She is such a trooper and handled it all with amazing inner strength. She knows that she won't be swimming for a while and she is still smiling! She is relaxing in a sea of pillows and drawing. It looks like the beginning of summer will be full of art activities and reading. Never a dull moment!!!!!

Such a sweetie - looks like she is doing well though. Stinks to be in a cast for summer - maybe a bag over it? Just make sure its completely sealed. Oh, and I think they make water proof casts too but it is more expensive!

Hugs,
Carla

Oh NOOOOOOO! I'm so glad she is such a trooper! That helps Mom too. I still hope we can meet up this summer. Let me know if you will be headed our way or if we can meet in the middle. I miss hanging out with you. Lily's sweet smile, and the way Graeme's face lights up.

Wow, Margaret! I am so sorry about that! Poor little angel! I hope time flies for her, but you can tell she's handling it amazingly well! AM had an appendectomy on Thursday night, her first offical day of summer! I feel your "pain"!!!

Kristy said...

Who told her that she could look so grown up!!!! Ask for a waterproof cast and then she can have a blast!!

Love and blessings, Kristy
