Miss Brainy is destined to be in a cast and on crutches all summer. She broke her ankle again, in a different spot, on 4th of July. We went to see the specialist today and he wants her to be in her walking boot for 4-6 weeks or get a cast next week. She has plans to go with her dad's family rafting and boating next week so the Dr. suggested a gortex cast. I will call to see what that is exactly and maybe get one put on so that she can swim on their trip. Poor girl was only out of the boot for 2 weeks. The dr. said that being in the cast before made her bones weak and she was probably walking different than normal when she stepped off a curb which caused the break. I asked again if he thought she had brittle bones or needed more calcium and he said her bones looked fine, but I think she will be taking a supplement (as will her sisters) just to be cautious.
We leave on wed. to go to Branson for a little R&R with Bryan's family. His family from Arkansas is coming up to meet up there, so it should be a good time. Plenty of cousins for the kids to play with!
