|Just Waiting for the Doctor|
We got up early and got the kids off to school and then we headed off for her appointment. We arrived right on time and made our way to the 3rd floor. They took her immediately back for another X-ray and then we settled into doing some paperwork.
When we were finished, we were placed in a room to wait for the doctor. Baby Doll chose a book and we read through two of them before she started to get restless. "What's taking so long?" she complained. Then a minute later, "Maybe they just can't find a pink cast."
|A new pink cast!|
The doctor answered all of our questions and then sent in the technicians to put on the cast. They even "found" a pink one! I had intended to take pictures of the process for you, really I did, but I was so fascinated with the teamwork and quickness of the task that it was over before I even thought of it.
The cast is waterproof, which is nice, but it is also higher up on her arm and it makes it difficult for me to carry her. She was also in a fair amount of pain from the X-rays and just moving her arm while they put on the cast. After a little ibuprofen, she slept the rest of the morning away, barely waking while I had the dentist work on my teeth and she laid on the floor.
The only thing that roused her was when one of her little church friends brought her a treat and wished her a quick recovery. Yeah, it was a boy...
