She was standing on her little rocking horse seat -
- and of course I do not encourage that!
The seat is about 6-8 inches off of the ground.
I knew immediately.
The cry was different.
She wouldn't stand.
She wouldn't stop crying.
Off we went to Children's Hospital.
Diagnosis: spiral fracture of her right tibia.
Treatment: long leg cast (aka above the knee cast)
She started crawling, then standing, then walking.
We were assured that all of this activity was fine.
Then I noticed a weakness in the heel of the cast.
I brought casting material home from work to reinforce it.
But when I got home, the weakness turned into a blow out.
I could see her skin.
Back to Children's Hospital we went -
a new cast now.
This one has extra padding and extra fiberglass around the heel.
Hopefully this one will last-
I can't wait until September 24!
