It’s summer, the sun is shining, there isn’t a cloud in the sky, and the kids asked to play on the slip and slide. Which of course meant they sneaked bubble bath from the bathroom and covered the trampoline in it.
Until I heard really loud crying I identified as coming from the eldest (mine) and by then Miss8 had come go get me.
Eloise had slipped on the tramp and sprained her ankle and it was swelling up already and very very sore. I got her inside and we put ice on it. We also gave her some ibuprofen and decided it was best I take her up to Accident &Medical to get checked out by a doctor. (Sunday afternoon = pricey but necessary)
We saw the triage nurse (Brian, very nice) then waited about an hour for the x-ray (another Brian!) then waited again to see the doctor. Upon reviewing the x-ray he found something he called interesting. I asked if it was good interesting or bad interesting. There was a line on her fibula at ankle level. Enough of one to make him take the safe route and put her in a cast. A back slab I think he called it (not a full cast).
We have to go to the Fracture Clinic on Friday for an assessment and they might do another x-ray. There’s one week of school holidays left and then it’s time to start at a new school. Gonna be fun on crutches!
