Crazy Night In Emergency

Yesterday was a long day. Everyone who has a toddler knows that they are always falling and sometimes you don't catch them. Well, yesterday my sweet baby girl was active as always and took a bad fall. She decided to jump on our bed and have a little fun. Our bed is fairly high off the ground. As I'm telling her to get down she decides she is going to take a swan dive off the bed on to our hardwood floors. Ouch!!!! She cried for about an hour and then I finally got her settled down. She injured her left wrist. I really wasn't concerned until it started swelling up like a balloon. Then I started to worry. I called the hubby at work and told him I was going to take her into emergency. So he met me there about an hour later. This was at 6:30 pm. By 9:30 pm the doctor has come to the conclusion that she ended up fracturing her left wrist. They called it a green stick fracture. They compared it to bending a stick that never actually snaps and just has a bubble from being bent. She is now in a cast for 3 weeks. Last night was a long night. She got up crying about three times and the rest of the night she moaned. I got up each time and gave her some Tylenol but I'm not sure how much it's helping the pain. I can't tell you how tired I am right now. YUCK!!!! I feel so bad that she got hurt. I wish I could of caught her. I have to call today and make an appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon for next week. The next few weeks should be really interesting with her wearing this cast. I have no idea how I'm going to give her a bath. I guess I'll just stick a plastic bag on her arm. Wish me luck!


  1. I'm sure this is the first of many thing's that will happen. It sound's like you handled it great. She will be fine and they doe have case now that can get wet.

  2. My little peanut hit the hardwood floor yesterday too. They're resilient little buggers :)

  3. Poor girl! Hope she's feeling better soon!
