So Molly got a pink temporary cast and an ugly navy blue sling. Well you know us, that ugly blue sling HAD to go. A girl can't be expected to sport one of those ugly things to church on Sunday morning while telling of her awesome bike wreck and showing off her pretty pink cast! Somewhere around midnight I was making my girl a sling that she could be proud of, and on Sunday morning she had a Sassy little sling to go with her pretty pink cast and her awesome story. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, ya know.

Because if you have to have a broken arm......
...you may as well wear it with style and have a good story to go with it! That's our motto! Molly had an awesome bike wreck while camping this weekend with Nana and Papa. She rode her bike off of a bridge that wasn't finished yet and fell about 5' to the ground hurting her right arm. Papa made her a make-shift splint out of cardboard and fabric and she hopped back on that bike and kept on riding! I was there shortly after the wreck and she seemed to be doing fine, just favoring the arm a little. After a couple of hours the pain was too bad to ride bikes so I took her on to the local urgent care clinic. The doctor there told us that she couldn't be positive from the angle of the x-ray but she was highly suspicious that Molly's elbow was broken or cracked in the wreck.
Today we are headed off to the children's orthopedic doctor to find out if the arm is really broken or not and Molly's all excited about showing off her outfit/sling combo again. Silly girl! But really...Can I blame her? She does make having a broke arm look good! LOL! Did I mention that Baby Sister coordinated too? Maybe it was a little over-the-top, but we may as well enjoy it!! This may be our last broken arm! LOL!
UPDATE: Well, it's definitely broke. Today the Ortho doc said that she broke the growth plate in her wrist. Molly is now sporting a pretty red cast and she is insanely proud! LOL! I will try to get a picture up before it's brown with dirt from the garden! She is loving all of the comments she is getting about her sling too, that child has been walking on clouds all day!
