Things seemed to be going well, then Peighton woke up with a pretty swollen elbow. The x-rays in the ER show a jagged break across her humerus, just above the elbow joint. The accident must have happended sometime over the past couple of days. She definitely showed the same signs of courage that her mother showed over the past year and hasn't complained much at all. She was very, very good in the ER. Tomorrow we'll go to Children's Mercy to have an orthopedic doctor take a look at the fracture and put a hard cast on her. Let's hope that the plan won't require any thing other than natural healing. I'll let you know what the doc says! In the meantime, the picture of P and her new friend Dominic prove that she is doing fine.
Oh, by the way, I'll post the entries for the Crawl for Cancer tomorrow.
