Hey everyone,

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. ❤️

  1. Sorry I haven’t responded to your previous text of how wonderful Ava has been doing! So glad she has been able to experience some wonderful times! And she will once again, soon! She looks pretty darn cute with that cast! Nothing that mommy or daddy should feel guilty about! We all know she is a trooper and will be up running around as soon as possible! Take care and know you are wonderful parents and Ava is blessed! Heal quickly little one!💕
