and not in a good way.
It all started Friday , about 1:30. My MIL called to say Ellie had fallen at the playground and was in pain. She wasn't crying (at that moment) but was holding her arm and acting like it still hurt, which is unusual for her. She tends to pop right back up, even after the most horrible looking falls. This time, she had fallen off of the 5 inch high step she was SITTING ON. My daughter, no grace at all. Gets it honest too.
So, I came home from work. She cried a little, when she saw me, and was still holding her arm. She was VERY ill though, as she had not had her nap yet and she gets VERY cranky when she doesn't. So, I bring her home and knock her out. She fell asleep about 4. At 6, she woke up, crying and I noticed that her arm was swollen. So, off to the emergency room A and I go. To make a long story short, it looks suspicious. The doctor didn't think it was broken, but because 2 year old bones are still growing and changing she couldn't be sure if it was cracked or just where it was growing. SO, Monday, we get to go to an orthopedic specialist.
Today, she doesn't seem to be in as much pain, thank God, but they did give us Tylenol with codine (sp???) in it. Just have to say, my kid on the good stuff is a FUN-NY sight. She was hilarious last night and this morning. No more for her though, makes her too hyper. I put her on Motrin.
Hopefully the weekend will get better. I started Joyce Carol Oates's Black Water, a short book and so far pretty good. Hope to finish it later.
