Monday Update – Broken Bones and Butcher Knives

cedi castYup – it’s finally happened.  I’ll be honest – I’ve been waiting for the phone call I got last Wednesday for a long time.  Cedi is such a monkey – I think she started climbing before she started to walk.Cedi cast red lobster

Anyway – it turns out that Cedi fell off the monkey bars at school and landed on her wrist.  I took her to the doctor on Wednesday and the initial diagnosis was a sprain.  The radiologist looked at the x-rays on Wednesday night and I got a call on Thursday morning – bring her in for a cast – a buckle fracture.cedi cast firetruck   When they showed me the x-ray it turns out that both bones in her wrist had buckle fractures.  Once Cedi had her cast on she was a completely different girl – energy back, no more moping around.  We’ll see how long that lasts when she really realizes what it means to not go swimming or in water for 4 weeks…pipAnd just for chuckles (yes, I just wrote chuckles) I had to share this picture of Pip with you.  Yes – she’s sucking on her Butcher Knife – don’t worry it’s plastic but it IS one of her favorite toys.  You should see the looks we get at restaurants when she’s playing with her knife.

    And that picture of Pip and the butcher knife is hilarious!
