Our youngest fell out of our treehouse Wednesday afternoon and fractured her wrist – she was in a lot of pain the first day, but seems to be doing so much better today.

We have an appointment with an ortho specialist to follow up in the morning (hm, it’s 2:20 am – does that mean it’s really today?) and see if she’s going to need a cast. I sincerely hope not, for her sake. She’s already complaining that this splint itches. I can’t imagine going four weeks in a cast with a 4-year old.

Here she is the evening it happened, tears are all gone and replaced with her thousand watt smile. Please disregard the ice-cream mustache…she has dad wrapped around her little pinky. Add an injury + baby of the family and that = ice cream.

    That smile would indicate that the ice cream for medicinal purposes works! My hubby believes in it too.

    And I do hope she doesn’t need a cast!

    Oh, I FIRMLY believe in ice cream for medicinal purposes. So glad it’s not hurting too much anymore.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for no cast! Hopefully it will heal quickly!

    Ohhh, poor baby and poor Mama! Sorry she got hurt but I hope she heals quickly. I recommend Moose Tracks ice cream for everything from a stubbed toe to a bad hair day! LOL Take care.

    She sure is a cutie!! And I can see how that smile resulted in ice cream. 😀

    So I’m curious – is she right-handed or left-handed.

    Ice cream works for just about everything, except dieting, of course – but that’s a minor detail – and certainly not a concern of a child. Hope she’s doing well with that cast.
