Yep she's my kid! She flipped backwards off a swingset at a friends house. Landed on her arm, it wasn't really swollen so we wrapped it and iced it once she got home from her friends.
Then I noticed she was holding it up and not using it. She was complaining about it hurting a lot also. So off the to Dr we went. She has a Distal Radial Buckle Fracture. Where the bone bent and didn't break all the way. She has this cast on for 2 weeks, then we recheck to see how its doing. She may get it off then. All I know is keeping a kid out of the water in the summer is HELL! I will post a pic of her cute cast later. When I'm not working!

I hope she gets better soon! I've heard it's pretty easy to break a wrist.

It's a shame she is so much like her mother...

I wish they gave her one of those! They gave her a regular fiberglass cast. She was supposed to get it off Monday.
