First Broken Bone

Sophia is our clumsy kid.
Would it be nicer to call her accident prone?

She was the first one to need surgery
to remove an inanimate object from her finger.
aka known as a steel seat belt
(it was removed with a diamond saw)

She is also our first kid to break a bone.
Poor thing.
She did it at gymnastics.
If you saw her at gymnastics,
you would know, like us,
that it was bound to happen

I'm just glad she didn't break her neck.
I can't imagine what it would have been like to shower with a casted neck for the past 6 weeks.

Well, the day has finally come
even though Sophia would have told you it was never gonna happen.
Yes, she's getting her cast off today.

She WILL get the cast off today
even if I have to arm wrestle her doctor.
I don't think I can handle her crying out of disappointment again.
Her last appointment was really rough
when the doctor insisted she keep the cast on.
We sure do love you Phia.

Notice dad's autograph there.
Mine is on the other side.
It can read
depending on how you look at it.

I really hope the cast came off and that Sophia is CAREFULLY running around and enjoying the new found freedom. (as well as the chalky whiteness of her one arm compared to the other!)
