Pink is her color

Well, we had an exciting weekend! How was yours? Not to brag, but I bet ours was much more fun. You see, around 2pm on Saturday, my 2 year old daughter fell off the ramp part of our swing set. She didn’t fall far. Only about 4 FEET!!!! My husband didn’t realize that he should have been helping her on the ramp. He’s only 37 and he’s still learning.

I came home from the grocery store about 10 minutes after it happened and I KNEW something was wrong. This kid doesn’t cry longer than 20 seconds after she gets hurt. I felt her elbow and it felt weird to me. Her father thought it felt fine. I took off her shirt and could clearly see that her bone was not where it should have been. Her father said she was fine. I took her to the ER.

X-rays revealed that she broke her elbow so they took us by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Boston. Can I just tell you how great they are there? LOVE THEM. They gave her a stuffed giraffe, books, and a balloon. And believe me when I tell you she wasn’t that nice to them. She kept saying, “I don’t like doctors!!! I want to go home!!!!” I have no idea where she gets it from. (Shut up you in the back). Then they did surgery to reset her elbow using 2 pins and put a pink cast on. Yes, she chose the color. She did great! We had to stay overnight for observation, and we came home yesterday morning.
