I am thankful for a wonderful Thanksgiving and for all the friends and family that traveled near and far to celebrate with us. I also had the pleasure of working with a great oncology team (including the patients) and rounding in the hospital Thanksgiving morning, but made it out in time for a delicious dinner cooked by everyone else!
Having an arm in a cast doesn’t stop Kaya from finger painting, although her cast may be somewhat more rainbow-colored than when we started.
School was closed on Friday and Kaya’s favorite activity these days is gymnastics, so she spent the day at gymnastics camp. About 20 minutes before it was over, she jumped off a vault (as instructed, I believe) but landed poorly and snapped her radius and ulna. We spent the evening in the ED while they reduced and splinted her “BBFF” (both bone forearm fracture) and she’s in a long cast for the next month or so. She did pretty well through the experience (except when they tried to take the tape off her arm at the IV site before we left), but had a rough weekend adjusting to new functional limitations and pain. She finally went back to school today.
A huge candy haul last night from the Rose Family (mostly from over-estimating the number of trick-or-treaters at our house and having a lot of leftover candy). A big thanks to grandma Baba for handing out candy while the girls went trick-or-treating. And poor Yoya had to work, so Max stood in for her as Peter Pan. Happy Halloween!
