Feeling Better today..........
Our Great Pyrnese dog, Yetti, has graciously donated his couch for Pip to lounge on. Can you believe the 'nerve' of our Dr. suggesting I keep her "STILL" for the first 2 weeks????!!!! There is NO way he has ever had children! We will have this hard plaster cast that goes nearly to her hip for about 3-4 weeks, then if we are goode.....we may get one that is below the knee for the last 3-4 weeks. It is SO heavy! I'm hoping the weight of it will sort of keep her from moving about too much....(hey~ I can hope right???) She is quite a happy camper~ we saved her last dose of codene for the 'casting'~ thank the Lord for good medicine. I cant stand to see my babies in pain
I got the honor of being the first to sign her cast~ we were putting on new sparkly pink nail polish, so I gave her a pink heart to match. She has been sure everyone she sees signs it~ keeps her pen with her! Daddy drew some sort of catipillar monster looking thing on there.....sisters Emma & Tressa both signed....brother Josh signed, then drew her a real neat picture of a ""Volcano spewing out Hearts""....and of coarse she's been filling in herself here and there. I knew it wouldnt stay white for long

Hey, where's Grandma's "kiss"?? Don't know how, Mom? Put on some lipstick....give that little leg a big SMOOCH, then outline it with a pen so some of it stays there!
LY, Mom

But of course she was looking forward to her medicine. She's lucky she's not allergic to codeine or she would be hallucinating, as I did once upon a time.

She is so cute. I'm sure it broke your heart to have seen her in pain. I'm so glad she can handle it. Have fun decorating that cast!
