Last night, my Hannah Joy, broke her arm.
I've had to think to come up with some thankfulness out of this.
I'm first thankful that when she got to the ER she was the only one there. I am thankful it was a broken elbow instead of something much worse. (she fell off a twin bed standing up on it and caught herself with her elbow and fractured it) I'm thankful that she was so happy at the hospital and smiling at everyone. Nothing gets her down. I'm thankful she was able to communicate to me where it hurt and that today she's been able to communicate to me when it is hurting so I can give her Tylenol. I'm also thankful that the Tylenol is working. And I'm so thankful that this Princess of mine is okay and is up and playing with her sisters. I'm so blessed that her sisters have drawn her little paper dolls all day and have pampered her completely. They do whatever she wants the minute she wants it!
I am going to share pictures below from her time at the hospital. My husband went with her while I stayed with the other children. He said she was smiling and waving (with her arm that wasn't hurt) to everyone she saw and that everyone there loved her!
She's such a happy girl!
Madi Grace said, "mom, nothing gets her down, she just keeps smiling even when she is hurting." I can learn from that!
This is right after her x-ray. She did so well.
That's a radiation blocker she's still holding there.
Here she is as she was at home (after her x-ray) holding her hurt arm so it doesn't move... but she's all smiles as she waits.
Here she is waiting on discharge.
She has a partial cast because it was swollen and they can't fully cast it until the swelling goes down. So they casted the back of it and used all the stuff used for a cast to put the cotton around her and wrap her up with casting material but not hardening it on the front because of the swelling. The sling really gives her more movement because she can now use her other arm instead of using it to hold up her broken arm.
PRAISE GOD that He took/ and is taking good care of her!
A Thankful Mommy, Cassidy
