Okay, so I figured we'd have a broken bone sometime, I mean, it happens with kids! But I totally didn't expect it so soon!

As you can see, our little Verity (just two) has a broken leg. Poor baby. Thankfully it hasn't been too painful, and as far as breaks go, it's about the 'best' you can get. Still, it's new, it's awkward, it's uncomfortable...

No one actually saw it happen, but she was going from one room to another and fell somehow. There wasn't anything to trip over, and we could hear her, she didn't fall over anything. It just broke. She was such a trooper going to the doctor, going to get x-rays (although the x-ray machine frightened her), being examined by another doctor, and then getting the cast on. Such a good girl! We have to go back today to have it checked, and if she continues to be relatively pain free we might have to go out for ice cream afterwards.

I see (haha) a lot of movies in our immediate future.

Hmmm... she'll still have her cast on when we go to the Wiggles concert. Wonder if we'll get a better seat? ;)

Aw! :( But she seems to be handling it well. :) How did you know when it was something serious and not just a fall? I always wonder about that.

She wouldn't put any weight on the leg, even after three hours or so (with a nap in there as well). It was also a definite pain cry and not 'feel sorry for me' cry.

Poor baby. It makes me sad that she is hurt. Not counting the pain, we probably feel worse about it than she does!

Oh okay, that makes sense.

Yeah, I think I often get more distressed about stuff kids go through than they actually are!

Poor girl! A very similar thing happened to a girl I knew, who was about the same age as Verity at the time. No one saw how it happened, but her mother said she knew something was wrong when she came into the kitchen dragging her leg and saying "it feels funny". It was a pretty bad break, but never seemed to have much pain associated with it.

I sure hope sweet Verity heals quickly, and is soon running about in her bubbly sort of way. :)

Aww, poor dear. Glad she's doing well though.

Oh, poor Verity. I certainly wouldn't have expected it so soon, either! I hope she heals quickly.

Poor thing! It looks like she's taking it well, though. :-)
