September 19th...a 2 foot fall off the porch...very, very loud screaming...immobilization...ambulance ride...excitement...
No breaks...no brace...no pain medicine...not the best hospital experience.
The mixed veggie ice pack.
became wheelchair buddies with Grandpa
A visit to the orthopedic surgeon...complete immobilizer...no weight bearing, no bending...a lot of sitting.
Became wheelchair buddies with Grandpa.
Got out and about..
But we did enjoy this one last beautiful day of summer.
She always was smiling....
Went on rides with the big kids.
Made cider at Uncle Jim's house
she became an expert on crutches!
She helped decorate for autumn.
She made crafts...many, many crafts...
She had an MRI....was told she had a completely torn meniscus and partially torn ACL... "Don't move your knee!!" (just make crafts while a surgeon is found)
Make homemade playdough....Head to the city to see the sports medicine specialist...
She is still smiling!!
We find out...on October 20th, that the MRI was misread....but after being in am immobilizer for over 30 days she will have to learn to walk again.
She is still smiling...and she is starting to walk!!
Here she goes!!
