It was a blah kind of day…
Claire fell yesterday, however neither Matt nor I witnessed it. She was saying something about her knee hurting but quickly got over it. This morning she woke up sensitive and obviously in pain. She also had a limp. But I gave her some tylenol and she got over it again. What a trooper, though. She walked around all day like she had a peg leg and really didn’t complain about it much. She was more interested in telling us about a ‘boo boo’ she got on her elbow a few days back.
We went to Hartwood for a walk and she insisted on getting out to see the horses and there was that limp. I kept calling her hop along Cassidy. I finally decided I should call the doctor. Dr. Wilson said that he wasn’t concerned about it being a fracture and recommended I see her regular doctor tomorrow. No need for an ER visit. (Which I greatly appreciated hearing.) So we came home and that was that. She limped, I worried, she limped some more and I worried some more…you get the picture.
Reason why I’m so concerned is that I had broken my hip when I was 17. Remember how I went to basic training? Yah, I broke my hip somewhere between week 4 and 5 (after breaking my left foot) and then continued on it for the remainder of training. Apparently I have some sort of congenital hip displacement that wasn’t too severe, but bad enough to cause an easy fracture. And it’s genetic. So I fear that I’ll give that to my kids. I’m sure this whole limping thing will resolve itself and I just need to have her rest, but I still freak out about those things… I never saw her fall.
In other news, Luca is adorable. Can I just say that? What’s that? You need a picture to prove it?
Claire is pretty cute, too.
(Notice the Pens shirt? Yah, I love it, too.)
(Oh, and of course, Matt was wearing his Pens shirt, too.)
