OUT! With the Olde, In with the new............

Well, its been 5 whole weeks since Pippin broke her leg~ already! Where does the time go? She has gotten used to this stiff appendage, and zooms around the floor at 20mph with it just a flailing around whacking into everything. The other day, I was in the kitchen, and out of the corner of my eye, here is her little cast, whipping around in mid aire, at about my knee height! I'm thinking to myself...WHAT??? is going on here???? She had finagled herself up onto the seat of the chair, on her tummy, and was desperately winging her leg around trying to get it to somehow stay up on the chair with her! I would be lying to say that I miss the days of her climbing like a spider up onto everything...because I don't! That's what got us in to this whole mess........... this morning we went to hospital to get xrays, and Dr to get her olde heavy plaster cast taken off...........(yes, I kept it~ I keep everything)
And here is her new Royal Blue fiberglass cast. :::Sigh::: They didn't have any pink left. Oh well~ we can still look pretty in bright neon blue!
It has been a hard day~ I'm glad its over! Pip has developed a fear of going to the Dr. I thought with each visit every week, sometimes more often than that, she would be used to it by now, but shes not. She can pick out the Dr's voice from all others, and will cry before he is even in the room! Just a few more weeks and hopefully we will be rid of this for a wonderful fun summer vacation!

Hannah looks like it's been a HARD day! Now Mom, get a big black marker and put "See you in JULY! Love Grandma and Grandpa Brown" on that new blue thing. It looks way too clean! :-)
