It has been a realllllly hard day and to be brutally honest, that one smiling pic was the one smile we received all day.
After x-rays (and being forced to pin down my screaming/crying child to get her to be still for the X-ray.) We learned Kaylee had a hairline fracture of her elbow. (I honestly didn’t even know you could fracture your elbow. See? First time moms need a manual.)
The fact that she needed a cast from her fingers to her upper arm for 3 weeks blindsided me bc I honestly believed she was just bruised. This means no playing with sand at the playground (no playground at all for that matter) no pool time, no water table etc.. And that kills me bc what else do we have to take away from this child? We just want her to be able to play like a normal toddler.
Having to watch her scream, cry and kick at 2 grown nurse tech men pinning her down to keep her still to put a cast on her was my breaking point.
That poor child was exhausted by the time we arrived home and is sound asleep in her crib.
We are exhausted and I am in full on pity party mode, so that’s it for the blog tonight. Hopefully I can get a more encouraging update after this wknd! 😏
Thank you for praying for her today & sharing her story! We are beyond grateful for the encouraging msgs and prayers!!
Enjoy your wknd!!
Duffy, Chris & Kaylee
