Well, it happened. First broken bone. Four weeks weeks ago, Rylee broke her foot. We went to ortho, and he put her in a walking boot. She couldn't bear any weight on it, and had to use her crutches 24/7. BTW, an 8 year on crutches is a pain in the rear. For real. Well, after 3checks ups & 3 more x-rays, yesterday he decided to put her in a hard cast. GREAT! It's summer in Texas, and she's in a hard cast. She's not happy! No swimming, no dancing, just sitting around, watching TV. BOO! I had a feeling he'd put her in a cast, because after 4 weeks, she was still complaining of pain. I just wish he would've put her in a hard cast from day one - we'd almost be done with it.
Of course, she chose the brightest cast they had - NEON Pink! ;)
