First Fooseberry Broken Bone

It's Official we have out first broken bone and cast.
Last week Olivia fell off-in her desciption- a too high swing and landed on her arm. When I received the call from the school nurse she said they had ice on it and it seemed in line but we may want to get an x-ray. Well after looking at it it didn't seem too bad and she was shipped off to her Dad's while I worked.
By the time I had her back and saw the swelling was still present and she was awoken by the pain in the middle of the night we were off to the Doctor first thing in the morning.
She did in fact break her radius and they put a splint on it for the weekend until the swelling went down.
The 1st night she remarked at how much better she slept with that on.
Poor girl.
She barely complained for 2 days.
So Monday after the splint allowed her arm to rest and the swelling to go down enough she was able to pick the colors of her cast.

Amazing! Do you see that smile? She rocks! (she gets her toughness from her Mother)
In 3 weeks she will go back and have another look and probably a new cast. Her 1st question- What is the next Holiday? Presidents day or Valentine's Day I say. She has decided to get a red and blue cast with the gauze poking out it will be red, white and blue.
I will update you on her fashion cast when it changes.
