Mia's Cast

Just when we thought we didn't need any more excitement around the house, Mia found a way to go and break her arm!!! Last night she was climbing up on the outside of the banister on the stairs (like she is NOT supposed to). Then at about the third step she jumped down and landed on her feet but fell forward and caught herself with her hands and that's when it happened. I thought she was just crying like she always did. We iced it for a bit and I gave her some Ibuprofen and sent her to bed. When she woke up the next morning and was complaining that it really hurt (even looking at it made her cry), we decided we'd better get it checked out.

They took x-rays at the Insta-care and sure enough, both her radius and ulna had buckled (or shifted). Kris Carter sent us to Dr. Millward to have a cast put on since it wasn't too swolen. Mia picked purple for her cast and was such a big girl getting it put on! We really think that Mia broke her arm to be like her cousin Saidee who had broken the same arm and just gotten the cast off a few days before. Ha ha!
