splint stint

eliza in splint

we’ll keep this splint on for 3 weeks unless it is determined that a cast is needed. eliza is amazing in how she navigates medical experiences…quiet and persistent “i don’t want to go” statements to shy smiles as we enter the building to blowing her whistle in the waiting room to full blown “i am not scared one bit…i am a big girl” statements and being fully cooperative. when the technician thanked her on and off for holding still, eliza would say, “you are WELcome.”

then i nearly blew it by reminding her that big girls can be scared.
that big girls can cry. blah blah blah.

eliza xray

regardless, she hobbles like a pro.
