Ok, well, not ALL girls ... just MY girls! My poor Becca bear broke her thumb Thursday in school, during PE, playing football. It was, of course, a complete accident and I would not say she should never play football again, but my poor girl :(
I was on my way out the door Thursday afternoon with my eldest daughter and my dh when I got a phone call, that by the way I almost missed. I am so glad I did not. My baby was crying and calling from school. So we went to pick her up. Now, I was not sure what to expect because, well... she is a crier and when something happens she cries. But I saw her poor little face and knew we had to go get it checked out!
We took her to a walk-in that does X-rays and such and they took her x-ray. They came back and said that it looked broken (which made her cry all over again) and that it was a small spot, but that we needed to take her to the ortho.
The next morning, first thing, we took her in and sure enough ... broken thumb :( Awwww! Thankfully, since it is a small break she only needs to keep it immobilized in the brace and does not need a cast! Yay! That would have been awful and a bit of an overkill! So, now she will go back for X-rays again in two weeks to make sure it is better. She is feeling much better since the brace is on and keeping it in place steadily.
