The cast is off....and another break!

The good news and the bad news!

Let's start with the good news shall we? I always like the good news first. We went back to the orthopedic and Reagan had the cast removed, re-xrayed and Dr. Anderson decided the cast could stay off!! We washed that hand and scratched it and rubbed her arm (the break was in her pinkie finger and knuckle). This was worthy of a celebration lunch at a pizza buffet that we have here locally.

The bad news is that the week after Reagan broke her hand, we went back to the same inflatable play place thinking that it was just one of those fluke things that happened. Well...wrong! Reagan came down off of a slide and landed wrong and had been limping off and on for about a week. While we were there I asked Dr. Anderson if he would mind taking a look at her foot and he did and x-ray (my daughter probably glows in the dark now :)) and guess what?? her heal is broken. After much discussion and examination it was decided that we wouldn't cast her foot for now. She is walking on it and the break is not severe. We are to call him next week if things are not better and he will have to cast it.

Believe it or not, we are supposed to go to this same place in two weeks for a birthday party....I am not to sure about that one.
