OH NO............not again!?!?
Ok, when is it going to end? We have another casualty at our household. Peyton broke her arm!!! She just got out of her leg cast on the first of May!
She was wrestling with Daddy and Spencer last night and ended up UNDER Daddy (who feels terrible). She was so MAD at him last night (as you can tell from the picture of her cradling her arm). He wasn't even allowed to look at her. He felt so bad too!!!
She has a buckle or torus fracture to the big bone in her forearm(the radius) and will be splinted for 3 weeks. The doctor didn't cast it as he said she doesn't need a repeat x-ray before it comes off. Will save me a trip to the dr. to have the cast removed. Its better this way anyway as I can take the splint off for baths. I have to cover her arm with a bag during meals so she doesn't slop food all over the splint. She doesn't seem to mind the splint (or the bag for that matter) She is so good natured and just goes with the flow.
The poor thing, I just feel so bad!! She has really been enjoying swimming too!
