Pretty in Pink

Today was the big day, our pink cast... which we have to wear for FOUR weeks! She was such a trooper though. It hurt and she cried when they took the temporary splint off, because her wrist wasn't restricted and she could move it around so it hurt. The inside of her wrist is black and blue, as well as the inner portion of her thumb (which they think is more due to how her thumb was positioned in the splint not from the fracture). So we sang Twinkle, Twinkle and I gave her a little pain medicine and she calmed down.We were hoping the cast wouldn't have to go past her elbow, since it is her wrist that's the problem. But the doc said that since her arms are skinny she'd figure out how to slide the cast right off if it wasn't up her elbow. So it's up her elbow. Good news, her fingers are out so she can still use them in support to her left hand.
She's in great spirits though (as you can see). The doctor didn't impress me at all, but I did like his assistant who let Kacey play with his Blackberry while he wrapped the cast up. She also has to stay in that sling for a few days to "set" the cast in the right position. Afterwards she got to go out with me and Daddy for a special lunch (Kylie partied with Yaya and Papa and didn't miss us one bit).

Had to have one of Kylie in there too, she loves her little sister :) There really are other parts of our house, this just seems to be our "camera spot."

**Tomorrow's my big ultrasound, not too much anticipation since we know it's a girl, but it will be nice to have a second validation :)

Aww...before you know it she won't even realize that big heavy cast is on there!! Allie had pink too. Casts are no fun but 4 weeks will fly by.

Pink cast! fun! and I love that you took her out for a special "mom and dad" lunch! I've said it before, but you guys are TOO CUTE!

Okay...that just breaks my heart. She seemd like she was such a great little trooper. Hope she feels better soon!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt that way about the dr. She looks so cute with her little cast! She's a trooper!

Poor little cutie. I hope the four weeks go quickly and she can have full use of her appendage again!

Now, if she was a WWE girl wrestler, that pink cast could come in handy. LOL!

I can imagine that Kylie is helping her little sister with everything.

She's in our prayers for a quick heal.

Children are so resiliant! Bless Kacey for being so tough! She gets that from her mother:)I am so glad Haley isn't attempting to get out of the crib yet b/c if she hits the floor it is hardwood. I can't believe how big that cast looks on her little arm, next to her little body! What a sweet little girl! Give her a hug for me!

Derek had told me what happened to Kacey, but I'm just finally got to see her cute little cast. Poor little girl, but she seems happy and in good spirits. Sometimes I think it's harder on the parents hang in there!
