A Broken Fibula

Erin was outside running races with the other girls Friday evening.  Murphy wanted to be a part of the fun, so he raced to join them.  He ran into the midst of them and tripped Erin.  She fell and landed on her ankle.  
We took her to Lafayette to the Emergency Room at St. Elizabeth East.  The x-rays showed a broken fibula, the small bone in the bottom half of her leg.  The bottom tip of it is broken.  They put her in a splint until we could see the orthopedic doctor.

 We went to the doctor's office Tuesday afternoon.  They put a cast on it and told us to come back in 4 weeks.
 After Erin got her cast on, we had to get a few groceries.  She got to ride on the "old people" cart in Sam's Club and Target.  
Erin dressed up her crutches with hot pink tulle and ribbon to match her cast.  Gotta be in style when she goes out in public!!


  1. Hope Erin heals quickly! I think she will be stylin' on those crutches! :)

  2. The colour of her cast was very nice.Has her leg tottaly healed?Hope she feels better.
