It was just a limp...

Last Monday we were all playing outside... she fell and seemed to take a while to recover. Later that night we were with a friend who is a pediatrician (thanks Adrienne) and she checked her out and gave a recommendation for an X-ray if it wasn't better. Hip X-ray Tuesday morning - nothing.

Therese continued to limp but still desired to walk with our help (like always). Yesterday (Ash Wednesday... who appropriate) David suggested that we take her back because she was not improving (she was walking with her little left foot turned way out). X-ray of the left leg and foot - fractured tibia!!

Crazy, huh? Who knew her little bone was broken clean through all that time!??!

So... one month starts now.



She can crawl, but we are not to let her pull up, cruise or put weight on it... good luck - she is 4 days away from her first birthday. Pray for a swift recovery. She looks great, and treats her cast like a toy. She's such a trooper.

Sweet baby! We had that same pink cast a few months ago... Kids are so resilient, it's amazing. Prayers your way for her speedy recovery :)

Prayers from McKinney.
And she sure is making that cast look good on her. She knows how to accessorize.
