Katie Anne's Hurt Arm


Today, I got a call at work right before 4:00 that Katie Anne had hurt her arm at school.  A boy had pushed her off the top of the slide, and she'd fallen a long way and slammed into the ground on her right arm.  She was crying, holding her arm, and didn't want to use it.  So, of course I headed over to her school to pick her up and check it out.

I was hoping that she'd be feeling better by the time I got there, but she was still very weepy and wouldn't use her right arm when I arrived.  It was swollen and obviously hurting her very badly.  So, I put in a call to Doc and VJ's house to see if Doc could check out her arm - he told us to come right over!  He took a look at her arm and thought she needed an x-ray, so we headed over to his old office where his partner, Dr. Crawley, was waiting for us.

Katie Anne got two x rays of her elbow, and luckily nothing appears to be broken!  Daddy and I were VERY happy that Doc, Dr. Crawley, and the rest of the staff helped Katie Anne in her little hour of need  - and we were especially glad that she didn't have to leave with a cast on her arm for the summer!   She has a little tiny American flag sling to wear for a day or two, and she's supposed to take it easy until her little sprained elbow is all mended.  


She's feeling a little better now - she ate a grilled cheese sandwich, took some Tylenol, and is laying on the couch and icing her elbow while watching some of her favorite tv shows.  Hopefully, she'll be back to her old self soon!

Poor thing! I hope she feels better soon. Do you know who pushed her? I hope that boy got a good talkin' to.

What a sad little girl! I am so glad that Doc and VJ came to the rescue! She looks like that picture I have of you sick on the sofa when you were about 3. :)

KA is such a trooper! Was that a baby bottle in her other hand? It's just like her to come on home and mother her babies despite a sprained elbow.

@Carrie Beth - Yes, we heard who pushed her... all the kids started screaming it at me as soon as I walked in the door. :) I told her that, if I were her, I would punch that boy in the face when I returned to school, but she said, "It's never right to hit, Mommy." Well, maybe in her opinion... ;)

@Kelly - Yes, that is a baby bottle. A good mother knows that, even with a sprained elbow, that baby has to be fed! :) She was on a Tylenol high at the time, so she got all her baby care in then before the bedtime crash set in.

Milk it, Katie Anne! Milk it for all it's worth!

Katie, if I was in charge, that frown would get her ANYTHING in the world. Be sure you never leave KA in my care at a candy store or toy store!

Oh gracious! She is such a trooper! Glad her arm is feeling better!

Oh no! She looks so cute in her sling. Ruby can give her some advice on how to milk it more. Love how you get her to 'pose' for these pictures.
