{No More Monkey’s Jumping on the Bed}

That’s right. We’ve experienced first hand that playful jumps on the couch can be painful to our 4 year old.  We were hosting a neighborhood gathering at our house when this happened to little B.  She’s been such a trooper through all of this.  She split and bent her bone in her forearm/elbow.  A few days after she got her splint we had an appointment to get her arm casted but after doing more x-rays the Doctor told us that B had to go in for an surgery that night so they could straighten (break) bend in the bone that was putting pressure on her other bone.  Gosh was that a shock – it was heart breaking to see Brielle unaware of what was going to happen as we got her in her gown and in the hospital bed.  Her spirits were calm and peaceful, she colored and we played rhyming games for the 2 hours it took them to prep her.  She’s amazing!  These pictures were taken the day after her procedure – her cast is wrapped with bandages because they split the cast down the middle to allow room for swelling after her surgery.   Again, she’s coloring and blowing bubbles with her bubble gum:)   Note to Parents:  Don’t let your Monkey’s jump on the bed or couch in our case! :(  Although I’m pretty sure this won’t stop her.

Aw I read the news on facebook and it broke my heart seeing the pictures of her in the hospital. She is a tough little girl and adorable on top of that. I’m sure she’ll always like jumping on the bed but hopefully this was her last spill.

Ouch! I hope she heals quickly!

Beautiful girl you have there. I hope my daughter is that assured and strong by that age. :)

Gorgeous photos too, as always.

Oh, No! She looks like she’s being a very good patient though. Hope she recovers well. :)

Wow, look at the swelling in her fingers. I am used to her long slender ones.

She has such a delicate, soft beauty about her…even in a cast. I still remember my very first cast – after a few days with it I was proud of my tough ‘battle scar’….until the itching set in! She’s a trooper.

awe– poor thing. I love that she chose hot pink and is already rockin’ those precious elementary school autographs.
