Arm Update

Cassie is doing fabulously with her arm.  She hasn't been in pain.  She hasn't complained about it.  She has just done great!  The only thing is that she acts helpless at times, which I think is just a ploy to get mommy to do EVERYTHING for her.  We've been exploring what things she CAN actually do and she's becoming a teeny bit more independent once again.  It's been a looong week for momma feeling like I have 2 toddlers having to do every single thing for her.

We go in the morning to get it checked out, re-x-rayed, and casted with a real cast.  I am kind of hoping that they'll x-ray it and say, "There's no break!  She doesn't need a cast!"  It just seems strange to me that she's had no pain, though I am EXTREMELY thankful for such a blessing!

Well, that's the update.  VBS is in full swing and I'm the head of the snack department.  Of course, I didn't know that I would have an injured child and a husband moving away during VBS week when I signed up for the job, but we're going to make it all work out!

Hurray for you and Cassie. Enjoy VBS. I'll be in town next weekend. I'm looking forward to the purse auction!

Glad to hear she is doing well! Hopefully there is no break- but I will say that when we splint fractures at work- the pain does seem to decrease significantly to nothing at all- especially if is it a small break....and all bone takes 6-8 wks to heal. Fingers crossed that she can get back to normal ASAP!!!
