Let me start by saying, I absolutely LOVE the Orthopedic doctor's office we went to. They are the ones that I saw for my foot. It's really nice when you find a doctor's office with such a kind and compassionate staff as well as some great doctors! The doctor that we saw today was a young one and he took the time to print out Kacey's xray and explain how her arm was broken in terms she could understand. He explained to her that she'd be in her cast for 6 weeks but in 2 weeks he wants to make sure it's healing the way it is supposed to so we go back for more xrays and then 4 weeks after xrays she will get the cast off. She broke it in a perfect healing place. He said 5 years from now you won't even be able to tell it was ever broke. YAY!
That bump....yep thats where it's broken!
After he unwrapped her arm, he showed her where it was broken. He asked her what her favorite color was? She smiled and said "Pink!" He laughed and told her he could definately accomidate her :) Before he had a chance to cast her, he was called to an emergency at the hospital next door. He came back in and reassured her that she was in good hands and the other doc would take good care of her arm and put the cast on. I thought that was super sweet of him!
The process begins...... PINK....not light pink....not dark pink.....HOT PINK!!
Of course, you couldn't wipe the grin off her face! She was so excited to get a colored cast and she said it was too pretty to write on...LOL! She's doing pretty good with it. She was happy to be able to move her fingers, which are still very swollen. The doc told us to continue the Motrin and keep it elevated for the rest of the day today. So she's resting quietly on the couch and taking it easy today!
Thanks to everyone who's sent her well wishes :) I read them all to her and she's feeling the love from all of you out there!
