This happened Tuesday morning. After coming down the slide Ila was crying and Mark and I both were concerned that she might have hurt her leg pretty bad. She wasn't screaming or acting badly hurt so we thought maybe it was just sore or a pulled muscle. When we got home we had her rest and I thought a good day of rest would be all she needed. But....she didn't want to walk on it and wouldn't put her foot down at all. The odd thing was she was folding her legs and moving around just fine but the only thing she wouldn't do was stand on it. So again I thought maybe just some rest would help.
That night Ila slept great and didn't cry at all, she rolled around in her bed like normal too....she just didn't want to walk or stand. So in the morning when she still didn't want to walk or stand Mark and I took her to urgent care. They took some X-rays and sure enough her leg was broken. I was amazed how good she was about it and how normal she acted. The doctor at urgent care said when little kids break a bone they usually don't act like what we would assume they would act like. Good to know!
Ila has been a trooper and doesn't seem down at all. Little kids are amazing and so strong. I'm sure the next 4 weeks will be easy and not too different then our normal routine.
