So, Molly has her arm in a cast. She fractured it, probably while taking a fall outside on Monday... It wasn't a funky color and I didn't even realize she must've landed on it funny until I felt her forearm yesterday morning and it was swollen. We went to the pediatrician and then children's medical center in Plano.
On the xray there is a little bump on her bone next to her wrist (that's what it looked like). She has a "closed" fracture (almost like a bend in her soft baby bones) and needs a full-arm cast for five weeks! It has to be full-arm at this age or else she would wiggle right out of it.
Poor baby! Although she had to tell ME to hold it together numerous times, she didn't cry once - she thought the whole process was fascinating (although I saw a few winces when we were positioning her arm for xrays). Such a brave girl.
She slept great last night and today she is much happier than the last couple days, even though she sometimes has trouble picking things up with her right hand and pushing herself up.
Sweet little Molly!
