Beka's new purple cast

went to the fracture clinic this morning with Beka. They said to allow 2 hours but we were only there for 1. YAY!! the doctor looked at the x-ray and said that there were two dark spots that meant there were little cracks in the bone. One just above the elbow and one just below. He then took off the temporary cast and checked everything out. He moved and poked and prodded and was very surprised when Beka said that none of it hurt. She could squeeze his hand, etc. Then he said that while little kids heal very quickly there was no way it had healed in 4 days so she was going to get a proper cast. However, he said to make another appointment in two weeks and they would take it off then. So only 2.5 weeks in a cast! YAY!!

Was thinkin' about the cast before coming up and decided ythat Beka would choose purple. Wonderful color. Will be looking forward to news in two weeks! That would be great if she only needed a cast for 2 weeks. Glad too that it only took an hour. The ER doc did a good job of splinting. And little girls do heal quickly. Beka deos nothing slowly -- except maybe chores! Love you all
