So yeah I just realized I didn't share this with everyone...We have come to a conclusion in our house. DD should have been named Grace *no offense to anyone with that name as it is a beautiful name it's just slang for klutzo around here*! Literally this girl can look at something and get hurt!
Here she was last weekend at her TOP Dance Competition
Now here she is 3 days later...Sorry I know you can't see it real well but her right hand is all wrapped up bout midway on her arm.
Now not to be confused because l did know she actually had *an* injury then but I wasn't being a good attentive mommy and rushing her to the DR! Now don't go gettin all in a tiffy calling SRS on me! We just thought her finger was jammed!
Seriously I was gone to a meeting for 2 hours and come back and she's all puffy in the face been crying her eyes out so I ask what are all the tears about and she shows me a slightly bruised swollen finger. So I ask her what the heck she did?! She says "I was playing soccer out front and I kicked the ball way up high and went to catch it and jammed my finger"! Who does that?! Gets injured playing by themselves! So I have our resident Dr J look at it and he says it just jammed so we iced it and went to bed. After the main swelling went down her finger was still puffy between her top knuckle to her middle knuckle and resident Dr J said he now thinks it is broken on that bone. You may be asking yourself why I ask my 15 *nearly 16 in my defense* son about her injury, but he has had training at school and this is the exact field he is leaning towards career wise. He had set his heart on being an FFA teacher but in the last few months he has realized he's pretty good in the sports medicine type issues! So anyhoo...I took her to the Dr and they X-rayed and sure enough it's broken right where J thought it was! So my girl has to keep this brace on for a few weeks! Hopefully not to long because she has recital coming up and that would suck!
Oh and I might add just as an example why I call her Grace....Right after I called the Dr's office to schedule her appt she was going into the other room and stubbed her pinky toe on the chair then proceeded to wallow around on the floor for 15 minutes thinking she broke her toe! Then as soon as she got up she says "ohhh and I hit my knee on the shower ledge this morning getting out"!! All of said injury's happened on the same side of her body!! I told her I'm gonna wrap her in bubble wrap!!
