It’s been a long week of long nights. Emily has been waking up multiple times a night. But now we think we know why!
We took her to the pediatric orthopedic specialist yesterday. They pulled off her splint the hospital put on her only to discover that she had a blister from it rubbing against her foot. Poor girl!
She’s started doing this funny thing where she talks – A LOT – when she’s nervous. She gets so many questions behind her little eyes that my heart almost melts.
Her leg is indeed broken. Right at the bottom of the front bone. So, she’s in a short cast for three weeks. They cut a hole in the back of her heel where the blister was and that alone seems to have stopped a lot of the fussing and whining about her leg. She’s sporting a purple cast for the next few weeks (comes off on Noah’s birthday) and other than not playing in a sandbox or a pool, she’s free to use it however she likes. She’s starting to put a little weight on it now that it’s in a proper cast and the dr said she should start testing it out soon to walk.
