She's Back!

But a little worse for wear!

She broke her elbow! Luke and I went to see her yesterday because there was a parade and free swimming at the public pool. She was with Brittany and Brittany's mom and during one of the pool breaks they were playing on the playground where she tripped on one of those hanging bridges on the playground and landed right on her elbow. She said he heard it crack. Great. Brittany's mom took us to the ER where we had x-rays done. I will scan them in later so you can see them. But she has a fracture in her elbow. She has a partial cast right now - more of a splint because of the swelling. Since we weren't home, we have to go see her Dr. this week for more x-rays and follow-up to see what they are going to do.

As far as how bad it is I was just too busy trying to keep her mind off it because she was scared to death and in a ton of pain and I was pretty freaked out as well - so I'm not sure how bad it is. She still hurts quite a bit but has her friend over playing Monster's Inc. Life so she's being really brave. She's on Tylenol with Codeine and ibuprofen for the pain and swelling.

She was really disappointed because she had to come home, cutting her visit with Brittany at Grandpa and Grandma's camper short by almost 3 days! She wasn't ready to come home and wanted to stay even though her elbow is broken! That's my girl - the social butterfly! :)

I'm glad I didn't spend the $175 for the membership at our local water park!
