Miss Emma Has Her First Broken Bone :(

We made it home Friday night after a fun filled week at the beach with Aunt Beth & the boys! Unfortunately, we were about to get ready to head to Tate Farm’s when Emma tripped and broke her wrist in 2 places. She immediately jumped up and was holding her left wrist and I could tell she was in pain. She normally bounces back so quickly when she falls and this time she didn’t. After about 10 or so minutes I decided to take her to the HH Urgent Care that is only 5 minutes from our house. Luckily, she was in such good spirits after we got in the car and was in such a good mood throughout the entire ordeal. She was absolutely perfect for the xray & when they gave her a splint & sling. They are supposed to call us in the morning and let us know when her appt with the ortho is and we’ll go & find out if she needs a cast. I’m sure they’ll give her one. I just hope that’s it. She’s done really well with the whole thing but she hates her sling. Plus it doesn’t stay on her arm so who knows. She’s trying to adjust to only using one arm but that’s hard for a 3 year old. The dr said to expect 4-6 weeks in a splint or cast. Here she is with her gigantic boo boo.

I’ve got lots of pictures to share from our beach trip but I’m too worn out to post them right now.  I’ve been in zombie land since yesterday but starting to get some energy back.  With only 2 adults and 4 small children, it’s going to take awhile to get back to normal!  Plus yesterday was really hard on me and probably harder than it was on Emma.  Somehow I managed to go my entire life without a broken bone or sprain and my 3 year old has 2 broken bones.  Hard news for a mommy.  But it happens.  Especially if you are clumsy like Emma!  🙂
