Returning from Camp

You remember that I had 5 kids out camping this week? Well, on Thursday night my neighbor called to tell me he had been up to the girls' camp. He's a firefighter/paramedic, so he was helping with the hike and camp health needs. He mentioned that Prima Donna had rolled her ankle on the hike, but she refused to come home. She loves camp even though she always grouses a little about getting ready.

They gave her a blessing and iced and wrapped it. So today we picked up Scout, my sweetie got back and so did Sport. The three girls rolled in about half an hour later. Prima Donna was hobbling, but still upright. When we got them all in the house and everything, I sat her down and examined her foot.

It was super swollen and hot to the touch. She had a couple of spots that were way tender, so I drove her over to the Instacare for an X-ray. It wasn't long before the doctor came back in. "Congratulations!" she announced. "You've broken your leg in two places!"

It appears from the X-ray that she has fractures on the bottom of her tibia and her fibula, right above where they connect to the foot and ankle. They put her in a walking boot and told her not to put any weight on it until Monday when she needs to see a specialist.

Some people prepare for a trip by making a book of activities, some make stuffed animals, some break bones...
