Our baby girl has a pink cast

Our baby girl has a broken leg. Nathan was with Elizabeth this morning at the doctor’s office in our hometown seeing the orthopedic specialist. We have been dealing with this for over a week since a mishap at the park last Tuesday night. The original diagnose was a hyper extension or maybe knee sprain. Then we were worried about a torn ligaments or tendons in the knee. Thankfully the orthopedic doctor comes the first Wednesday of each month to our little town. He caught an irregularity on the x-rays and then did new films on a different portion of her leg. Indeed she has a broken tibia = broken leg. She just was casted. A pink cast. Nathan is a wonderful daddy and he has called me three times keeping me updated. Elizabeth is happy and she is already crawling around with her cast. But…I am REALLY sad to not be there. Instead I am sitting in the Fargo office…listening in (again) on a conference call strategizing on a presentation for next week. My co-workers who follow this blog I am sure are smiling while they read this post. I am flustered to not be the mommy there with Elizabeth and Nathan right now. But Nathan had me to talk to our baby girl on the phone she was happy to tell me her cast is “hot” and “preey” (pretty). And her babysitter Ora yesterday painted her toenails so the toenails and cast all coordinate.
I need to end my ramble now…and will post pink cast pictures when possible.

  1. Oh no!! Poor girl…(YOU and HER!)

  2. Poor little E– but mostly stressful for mommy! It’ll be ok.

  3. Oh Goodness!! Poor girl and poor mommy. I love that her toe polish matches the cast though. . can’t wait to see pics. You guys will be in my prayers. Glad that she is crawling around already though, what a trooper!!

  4. Oh goodness! I can completely relate and know that it’s probably harder on you than on her. 🙁 On the upside, how blessed are you (and she) to have Nathan for her dad. I’ll keep you all in my prayers.

  5. Oh my goodness. How long does she have to have the cast on? Sounds like she has been adapting well so far. Good luck to all of you.

  6. Oh, goodness! Sorry to hear! Always more tragic for the parents…I’m sure she’s rockin’ the pink cast! I would expect nothing less from…wait for it…little miss pinke! 🙂
