Ellie update

To make a Long story short....
Ellie got her cast off last month after having to extend the time she wore it.

Her arm is pretty much as crooked today as it was the day she broke it.

She can still move her hand and fingers like normal.

She can't swing on monkey bars or put a lot of pressure on her arm. Easy for a SECOND grader...right???

Negative and Positive-
For some random reason neither Scott or I could make it to the last appt. with her when she got it taken off so we didn't get to talk to the doctor about what went wrong, but we did send her with someone who kinda chewed the doctors out because of the level of unsatisfactory which I would not have had the guts to do.

Double Negative-
We now have to go in November (ironical right after our insurance switches to a new year) and she might have to be put under and her arm re-broken and actually set this time, but with a pin.
Yikes! Poor Ellie.

Super Positive for her-
She's pleased as punch because she got to get her ears pierced a year early and thinks she looks like a princess!

Ellie: You've always looked like a princess to me - with or without your ears pierced and with or without a cast on your arm. I love you. Have a great year in school!
