We don't call her "Grace" for nothin'!

Last night was pretty uneventful...
My one and only daughter decided she could fly...
Poor thing was trying to "fly" and totally missed the mark, resulting in a crash landing directly onto her elbow. We spent a couple of hours in the ER last night and learned that Kailynn Grace has a "simple fracture" and we have to go see the Orthopedic Surgeon this afternoon. She was in a lot of pain and didn't sleep well last night.
Her arm is in a splint until we see the OS...



we'll know a little more after that appointment... whether they'll have to fix it surgically or whether they can treat it closed (no surgery)...

This whole situation doesn't "feel" very serious, but, indeed, it is...
She broke her elbow right where her growth plate is and if we don't do something about it, there's a great chance that her arm will not continue to grow normally.

You can see the actual break a little better in this picture...

After we saw the X-rays, the doctor offered a copy so she could keep them for "bragging rights." Kailynn was excited to show off her bones... and asked everyone in sight "Aren't they so cute?"

Well, I've got to get ready to take her in... wish us luck and please pray for the best. I'll share the results when I get a chance~

I hope everything goes well with the OS. My daughter broke the bone in her elbow last year, on her birthday...she was roller skating, lost her balance and fell. She didn't have to have surgery, it healed on its own. Surgery is no fun for little ones. I will be sending happy thoughts your way, good luck :)

Gee Chris - having a superhero in training sure is tuff! Praying that Grace will recover quickly (and sleep well tonight)! Take care, and give her a huge (gentle) hug from the SBS Sistahs. 8-)

Oh, and sorry, but I've just tagged you on my blog - know this isn't perfect timing, but maybe you can do with a small break (no pun intended) from thinking about Grace's arm, and have a laugh. It's not a long one, I promise!

Awww....she is a cutie. Bummer about her elbow. What a bad spot to break a bone. I hope that they can fix it so she is good as new.
