Well, Miss Shellybug has a fractured tibia!(shin bone) It's right below her knee, where she was complaining about. The ER Dr called it a toddler fracture, I guess it's fairly common? She has a splint for now, tomorrow I take her to an orthopaedic Dr for her cast. I dread that so much, she is so bouncy and is my little helper/mother hen, she loves to help me out most of the time. She can't put any weight on her leg for now. I'm wondering if she'll get crutches? I have no experience with broken bones at all. Oh well we'll see. I guess I need to find her some sweat pants as well, I was told she won't be able to wear jeans. She'll hafta wear a dress tomorrow, that's the only thing I can think of. I would go to Walmart tonight to look for sweats but running to town so much already I need to save gas.

Caitlyn had a cast on her arm, making it difficult to get dressed.

Aww poor Rach. and poor mommy. Does Walmart still have their cheapo brand (kid connection?) sweat suits still out. I think they are like $3 a pair.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Hey, do you have a Target close by? They have their sweats on clearance for $2.46 (I think it is--it's $2.40 something) and they have some stretch pants/leggings on clearance too. I was at two different Targets over the weekend and both had some of each.

Oh no! Poor baby! How long will she have to wear the cast??? Hope it goes smoothly today! Did you ever find out exactly what happened??

I've seen a lot of those capri length pants that flare out at the bottom this year (I know what they are called, but can't spell it for the life of me ... culats????)

Well good news, she only wears the cast for 3 weeks! She got a cast shoe to wear as well so she can walk...I had to pay $15 for that sucker! No insurance at all will pay for them. Oh well. Better than her falling.

As to what happened, I think she just fractured the bone when she came down from a jump on the trampoline.
