So we're going into another busy few weekends around here. Lantern Hike, Pumpkin Hunt, Halloween Parties, Trick or Treating.
Care to guess what happened Sunday afternoon?
Bri fell off a skateboard. Onto the concrete walk. We thought she just sprained it. We got her on the couch and gave her ice and ibuprophen. We waited a couple hours. Then we asked her to walk on it.
Off to the ER she and I went. James and Jimmy stayed home cause Jimmy had a cold. I figured that they's x-ray it, it would be sprained and we would be on our way.
She broke a growth plate where the leg meets the ankle. So they temporarily set it and then told us to get her into an orthopedist in a few days. Oh and take some ibuprophen from pain.
We got home and after two hours of shaking from anxiety (long story from when Jimmy was an infant) I went to bed.
Next day, James went to the school and told them what happened. They have a plan since the school has no elevator. So, he was able to get her into the ortho that morning and they took off the splint and hard casted her leg. It was the best break she could of had, minus not breaking it at all. Two weeks in the over the knee cast and then they will cut it down for the last three weeks. Also, now we have Tylenol with Codeine cause she shouldn't have ibuprophen cause it can cause growth problems. Huh?
So, no Lantern Hike, no Pumpkin Hunt. We have to figure out about Halloween. James is getting her homework so we can get her caught up.
Also, today we take Jimmy back to the doctor. He's having at least one nosebleed a day so we need to figure out what is going on.
Remind me never to plan anything again in my life.
