To Cast Or Not to Cast….That Was the Question!

Just a little update…

We went to Sports Med this morning and met Dr. Betteridge.  He took a look at Avery’s leg and x-rays.  He told us that what she has is a buckle fracture on the tibia and possibly a second small fracture on the other bone (fibia, I think).  He thinks from just looking at the x-rays that she probably landed her dismount from the playground toy with a jam and twist motion.  He left it up to us and Avery whether to cast it or get a walking boot and crutches.  Knowing Avery we felt like she wouldn’t be taking a boot off just for the fun of it, and it would allow her to itch any itches that come along.  She is happy with the boot especially after Dr. Betteridge told her that she could “bedazzle” it if she wanted.  (She was only sad about the boot because it wasn’t pink!)

So we are booted and on crutches for at least 2 weeks, then back for more x-rays after that.

Thanks for all the calls and e-mails to see if she is okay!

And let’s not forget the Katers, who may or may not have been looking for a little attention…
