Stairs+Baby= Broken Leg

Little Beanie fell down a flight of stairs yesterday, resulting in a broken left tibia near her ankle but above the growth line. After spending all day in the emergency room, little Beanie left with a cast on her leg. Luckily, it is below her knee so she is able to crawl. She will be casted for up to 6 weeks. We are fortunate that that was her only injury. She had a rough night last night, but woke up her usual, happy self.

Many thanks go out to Ron, who was there to hold down the fort at the home front. He did a great job caring for LittleMan while I was at the hospital with Beanie.

Pictures of cast to come....

I'm so sorry - what a sad thing to have happen.

One time my son went down 22 steps to a cement floor in a walker - I was crazy and I ran to gather him up - just a couple of bruises was all he had - but I beat myself up for months after - the little things are so vulnerable to freaky accidents......

Every mom's worst nightmare! Strength to you, and cuddles for the little one.

i was going to leave my reason for this question here, but it turned into a post of my own!

Biddie said...
