go go go
We made a quick visit to Rochester last week. Pucca had a check up at Mayo Clinic on her arm and shoulder. She's still doing remarkably well! The twins came with - which was nice. They now have a little better picture of what Pucca's surgery and recovery was all about. But don't get me wrong - they played the bored preteen role superbly!
Saturday night John and I went to the game with my little brother and his girlfriend, Maranda. They live in Kansas, but are definite HUSKER fans! John's uncle and cousin were also at the game! It was nice catching up.
Lastnight was the end of the year program for the AD girls (a group of girls ages 8-11 that I help with at church). The program went great! Kind of bittersweet for our family- with the move, we are in a different ward.
After the program, as I was cleaning up- I felt a little tug on my skirt. I looked down to see a little girl. She told me that Pucca was hurt. She rolled her ankle while playing with the other children. It swelled up really fast and she wouldn't let anyone touch it or move it- so we took her to the ER.
She has hairline fractures in her ankle. mostly on the growth plate. And a piece off the tip of her leg bone had fragmented off. She will get re x-rayed on Wed, but has a rigid splint and crutches for now. Poor thing.
