Fun for Emily
Despite the broken wrist, Emily has managed to fit in quite a bit of fun this week!  Although we were supposed to go to the orthopedist on Monday, we postponed the visit for one day so she wouldn't miss her first-ever Brownie meeting (she had already missed her first-ever soccer game, so I was trying to limit the disappointments).  Emily is excited to join a great group of girls at her school.  She was hoping they would start fires and camp out at their first meeting, but I think her expectations were a little high.  Despite the slight disappointment, she had a great time.

 
On Tuesday, we did visit the doctor who removed the temporary cast and fitted her with a smaller hard cast.  She will wear this cast for one week, and then it will be removed and replaced so they can x-ray again.  If she is healing, she can play soccer (with her cast wrapped in bubble wrap to protect other players).  She did have to sit out a second game on Tuesday night, but she went and cheered on her teammates. She's been wanting to play soccer for a while, so I know she is ready to participate in the action!
 

On Wednesday, Emily was able to get autographs on her cast (she had to wait 24 hours for it to dry completely).  As we all know, one of the main benefits to a broken bone is having other people wait in line for their turn to use the Sharpie on your cast.  Not only did she get to enjoy the attention last week, but she will get to do it all over again when she gets a new cast this Tuesday!  I know she will be glad to have the cast off for good, but it's nice to have some positives in a negative situation!


Finally, Emily spent Saturday morning with her Brownie troop selling baked goods to raise money for a local charity. It's been a wonderful week for her, and I know she is thankful to have some enjoyable experiences after a week of sickness and injury!
