Oops! A trampoline incident landed us in the ER last night with a really swollen ankle. The doctor said it was such a bad sprain that we needed to have it immobilized in a cast. Sojo was a trooper, and our little town's ER is filled with kindness. I fear we are spoiled with no waiting and lots of time for good bedside manner here. Her cast was old school plaster--dipped into water and everything--and she has to keep it on for a week until we go back and see how it's doing.
Although having crutches and being confined to the couch for 4 days is not super fun, the idea of no school, less baths and more movie time is a positive twist.
The most hilarious part of it all is that her best friend broke his arm 5 days ago, and so the two of them are in casts together. They spent the first hour this morning talking about their injuries and what each of them cannot do. It's one of those things they will both remember forever. I love that.
