H2 update

Posted by D under family

After seeing the specialist the verdict is in. H2 has an occult type 1 salter harris fracture of the right lateral ankle at the lower end of her fibula.

Strangely enough that is remarkably similar to a fracture that I had 24 years ago in my left ankle. Only not being seven, mine resulted in three surgeries and having a metal plate and six screws implanted in my ankle. Thankfully none of this will be necessary for H2. She’ll be in a cast for three weeks and won’t be allowed to do any sports for six weeks (which might cause her to miss her Tae Kwon Do blue belt test – we’re still working out that part).

Here are some pictures of the “casting” procedure that K2 took with her cell phone…

The blue cast is way cooler than what we had way back when I was a kid…

    Our daughter has sometimes said “I want a broken arm!” — so that she could get a cool cast, we surmise.

    Very cool cast !! I thought she’ll get a removable one, but this looks like it has to stay until its sawed off.

    Better now than in summer when it’s hot. Think positive :-)

    Hugs to my H2 girl and tell her the cousins like her cast very much too.
