Our little girl took a tumble playing with her friends... who would have thought it would result in surgery to re-align the worst of the breaks, nights spent in hospital, lots of x-rays and two casts!
The prescription now is cuddles, distraction, pain relief, giggles, sleep and elevation :)
I wish she had a better understanding of why she can't get up and run around. "I fall down Daddy, I can't get up!" It is a little heart breaking at times, but she has been really brave and is coping quite well with the frustration of not being able to move.
Please - I would love you to give me some ideas for occupying a toddler who can't put any weight on their leg for six weeks. We have a long road ahead of us so any ideas to help entertain our little girl will be a godsend.
Thanks so much to our lovely friends who have visited, delivered home cooked dinners, lent us dvds and puzzles, and brought flowers. You know who you are and we think you are awesome. xx
