I took Cowpokette to her first doctor's visit. It was an adventure. She was miserable by the time we got home. The Dr. took an x-ray to see how the bone was doing. Well...not so hot. I was really hoping he would say, "Wow, everything looks great, keep doing what you are doing!" But instead he said the top half of the broken bone has moved down 9 mm. When she broke it it was only shoved down 3 mm. And then the brake has moved 15 degrees. The Dr. says that if the bone moves any more that they will have to cut part of her cast off, put in a wedge, and recast her.
Well, that wasn't what I wanted to hear. We got home from the Dr. office and Cowpokette has been miserable. Tonight she actually broke down screaming and crying that her leg hurt. I just held her and told her she would be okay. I think maybe she had a muscle twitch. Something had to have hurt her. She didn't even cry like that when she broke it.
Sorry, I have been so bad about posting. I have been so busy with getting a business going, kids, horses, rodeos, baseball, church, dogs, last minute senior portrait sessions, and now one little girl with a broken leg. She has been really needy yesterday and today. I haven't been able to leave the room much.
I don't want to sound like I am complaining, but I am just really tired. So, I am going to go to bed.
