A few minutes later I realized she wasn't using her right arm. After some inspection, I saw that it wasn't really red, swollen, or bruised, so we decided to wait until the next day to see how she acted with it. She still wasn't using it so we made an appointment.
They decided to do x-rays after seeing her and it showed swelling around her elbow(where it hurts) which usually indicates a small fracture?!? Or something like that. They will have her in a cast for 7-10 days(we go back next Friday) where they will take it off and x-ray again. If they see any other signs of fracture they will put it back on for two more weeks.
She picked this apple green color, but has hated it from the second it was put on. She constantly asks for it to be taken off and her right thumb happens to be the one she sucks - now she can't get it to her mouth. It has made nap and bedtime a challenge.
Its 100 degrees outside and it is going to be hard keeping her out of the water. I asked the doctors about those bag things to put over the cast and they said they sometimes don't work. Have any of you had any experience with them?
