Sorry I'm just now updating; busy weekend! I know a lot of you saw this on fb already anyway.
But Thursday around lunch time, I had Emmy on the floor playing while I was folding towels. She turned from her back to her belly and started screaming! I picked her up and her left arm was limp and just dangling. She wouldn't use it at all! I tried to console her a few minutes but she was crying more and more hysterical. This baby hardly ever cries! She has bumped her head before and I cringed in anticipation but she shakes it off! So I knew something was really wrong. I called the pedi and they told me to bring her there and they'd look at her, since I'd be waiting so long at the ER. I honestly thought it was broken because it was just hanging there and she was obviously in so much pain.
Long story short, I get her there and while we were in the waiting room, she slowly starts to use it again!!
The doctor ended up still looking at her and they said her elbow must have dislocated. It's apparently fairly common and hers must have popped back in while we were in the waiting room.
I'm so glad she was ok but I was frantic! By far the worst scare we have had so far. She was in so much pain.
The doctor showed me how to put it in place again if it happens again. Yikes.
Awww, I'm so sorry this happened. It used to happen to my sister and me when we were little. It also happened to my son when DH was helping him take off a shirt that was too tight. We took him to the ER and they popped it back in place and told us that it happens to little kids quite often/easily.
