My daughter Leila hurt her right foot on Tuesday. I thought I should take her in but wavered on it. Anyway after it still bothering her for 3 days I decided to call the pediatrician's office to see if they thought I should take Leila in. She was still limping around, favoring the other foot, and not letting us touch it. They said yeah they really thought she should be seen. So off we went in spite of the long to do list I had for today for my sister's 30th birthday party tomorrow. Anyway after checking it out they decided that an XRay was in order. Sure enough Leila has 3 fractures in her foot. We had to take her to see the orthopedic dr at about 4:00 on a Friday afternoon(talk about impatient medical professionals). The Dr decided after looking at her X Ray that he would feel more comfortable with her having a cast on. So my poor Leila bug- not even 18 months old yet- has a purple cast on up to her knee.
She has to go back in 4 weeks. Hopefully then she will get to have it taken off. Until then no pools, no submerged baths, and we have a hot sweaty, heavy leg to contend with. She can walk with it but so far isn't too keen on it.
I am so sad and so angry at myself for not taking her in on Tuesday when she first fell.
Awww! It's so hard to make that choice sometimes. When I was two, my dad dislocated my shoulder swinging me by the arms (a big no-no) and it was a couple days before the figured out I wasn't using it. Apparently I was just a quiet kid (at the time) and since I wasn't crying, they didn't think it was serious.
