Sorry, Chris told me to title this blog that way. Well, the good news is that Alexa does not need surgery or a cast. WE couldn't have asked for a better outcome. They got home from the ER around 10:00 last night and Alexa was sleeping before she hit the pillow (doped with codeine). I had a pretty sleepless night, wondering what if she needs surgery? When will it be? Will our insurance cover it? And mostly, scared to see my first child under anesthesia and having pins put into her body. I haven't experienced that kind of fear before except when I was in the ER with Moriah less than 24 hours old. But it still was different this time. I thank those of you who prayed. We have a lot to be thankful for tomorrow:)
So, the deal is that becasue they did such a good job with the splint, we will leave her in it for the next 3-4 weeks and she'll be seen again by the same guy when we're here for Christmas. Despite ouor sleepless night, our stressful day and out excrutiatingly long office visit today, we can say THANKS BE TO GOD!!
On a side note, Alexa was very disappointed not to get a pink cast. WE made the mistake of talking up a cast, because we were so sure she would get one. SO, if anyone wants to decorate her sling, that would be awesome!! It won't be long before she realizes that it is a good thing not to have a cast on. I was dreading having to cut all of the sleaves on her clothes and resew them, not to mention baths. She can write since it is her upper arm that's broken.
