So today we ended up in the Stollery emergency.. and ended up coming home with a cast. Ava broke her leg😩😭. OF COURSE this had to happen. She broke her tibia and fibula- a buckle fracture. We had an accident at home and she fell off the change table onto her side… Thankfully she didn’t hit her head first. She has such a high pain tolerance that it’s so hard to tell how much really hurts! She was such a trooper today with x-rays and when they put her cast on. Of course we needed a ‘pink’ one 💁🏽♀️.
She was just getting a good taste of outside, swimming, and running around. She will be able to weight bear once her pain subsides. The Peds ortho tech gave her a ‘Little boot’ to help her walk once she can (gives her some grip). No baths for her😩. Ava after procedures/surgeries does not like the word REST. Will be cartoons in this house hold for a bit till she gets back on her ‘feet’- literally… So proud of her strength and bravery.
Definitely bad luck, and feel guilt of this. Was a complete accident, awful it had to happen to her 😔. No matter how careful and protective you are, accidents happen. Hoping for a speedy recovery and to see her up and walking soon adjusting to her cast. We were told she needs it for 3 weeks. Thank you for all the love and kindness. ❤️
