So, nice picture, eh?
Callie was reading books with grandma and when trying to get down, fell off the chair. Mom noticed afterward that she wasn't using her right arm and ended up taking her in to get checked out. Five hours later, they finally were able to leave the hospital with this cast and a sling. She had hairline fractures in both her radius and ulna. Meanwhile, Dave and I were on our way back from Seattle, so we were stuck in an airport/airplane while all this was going on (talk about frustrating to be so far away when this happened). Mom did great though and I knew that Callie was in good hands, so that comforted me.
She has a follow-up appointment tomorrow. I'm glad that I'll be able to go to that one so that I can ask any questions about what the next few weeks hold. Other than that, by this evening, she was back to business as usual. Smiling, giggling, climbing...there's no stopping her. Kid's are so resilient.
Anyway, it's wonderful to be home...and get to hug and snuggle my kids a little bit. We missed them a lot. I'll blog more about our trip in the days to come. Tonight, however, I'm about ready for bed.
Please pray that God continues to heal Callie swiftly and that she continues to remain "unfazed" by her new accessory.
