My hopping sweetie. Poor lamb! Her reaction around the 20 second mark is Hannah through and through. She’s amazing!
Afterwards we stopped in at Urgent Care with what I figured would be a ‘She’s okay, it’s just a little sprain’ visit but the doctor ordered x-rays for the following day just to be careful as she was concerned about the swelling and tenderness when she touched it. Here she is waiting for the doctor and looking oh so cute!
(I must say, if you need to go to Urgent Care, a holiday is a great time! We were in and out of there in 15 mins! That never happens!!)
I tried to calm my busy girl’s activity a little bit at the doctor’s recommendation but that’s a big challenge. In the end she’d slow herself down when she pushed it a little too much and sit quietly and read or watch tv for a bit. We also played games together which was not only fun but a good quiet activity for her.
and then waited to see him in UC from about 75 mins. Ah yes, that’s more normal, especially after a long weekend! Once again I thought it would be a quick ‘she’s fine’ response after he read her x-rays (based on the running, skipping and hopping she was doing) but nope, he saw something he didn’t like and showed it to me. I saw it too. He was concerned that she had pulled part of a ligament off. If that was the case she would be casted for a bit while it healed. This was the first we’d heard about a cast and she was pretty excited!! (LOL – Like mother, like daughter! I was exactly the same as a child.) Dr. Fitz sent her x-rays for a second read by a specialist and thankfully it came back that she was okay and no cast required. No gym or baton this week but other than that and she was good to go….slowly!
It’s now a week after her bad jump and she is pretty much back to normal. I still see her little hop, hop skip occasionally but I think that might be habit now or that she just moves the wrong way sometimes. So thankful it was just a bad strain and my busy girl is once again busy….even though she’s told me at least 20 times that she wished she’d got a cast….
and ‘crunches!’ LOL!!
