Half Way There!

Four Weeks down and two to four weeks to go!!!! Lucy has been quite the trooper with her big cast. She mastered her little walker and has figured out how to scoot anywhere!!! Last Friday we went back to the doctor and was told she was healing quite well. They took off her big pink cast and replaced it with a short green cast (she though that the Easter Bunny would like green). Just yesterday she was able to walk on her own with her little boot.  We go back in two weeks to see where we are then.

The best helper around!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Hanging Up Our Skates For Now

And our ballet slippers, and tennis racquets and anything else to do with physical activities!  Our skating lesson on Wednesday ended on a sour note!  Lucy had just completed a triple sow cow  or was just exiting the ice when her skate hit the ice wrong and she went down!  I knew it was bad when she told me she couldn't stand up!  We drove to the ER and after a few x-rays were told she had a spiral fracture and her leg was broken in two places! She was so sad and in so much pain.  The orthopaedics came for a visit and put on a cast from hip to toe.  We had two nights of little to no sleeping. Poor Lucy I have never seen her so sad.  Yesterday we went to see the specialist and got a new pink cast!!! We also got a walker as she cannot put any weight on her leg for the next 8 weeks!!  She is feeling a lot better today after a good nights sleep and lots of TLC!  I told her we will always remember the day she broke her leg - February 29th! Glad leap year only comes once every four years!
