We have been anxiously awaiting Teagan’s follow up to her Strabismus surgery and it is finally just around the corner! This Tuesday!! We were hoping that visit would go exceptionally well and we could take a break from the doctors & hospitals for awhile. That’s not the real world of parenting though, is it?
Just to keep us on our toes, Teagan jumped from the monkey bars on Wednesday afternoon and fractured her tibia in her left leg. After a couple hours at our Children’s E.R. she is now in a soft cast (in case of swelling) and Monday morning she will get a hard cast that will stay on from 4 to 6 weeks.
Fortunately, we live within miles of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, a wonderful facility. All of our doctors are in one place, which is great (though sometimes it starts to feel like we live there!). We now have a Pediatric Ophthalmologist, a Pediatric ENT specialist, and Monday we will meet the Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist. I’ll let you know what we hear from our P.O. on Tuesday. I think the news will be good. She seems to have far less crossing with her glasses on and off. I’m hoping she will get a new perscription, because either way she is in need of knew lenses. She’s scratched hers up pretty good in the 9 months she’s had this pair. I just really hope we do not need to do more patching at this point. I think the cast on her leg will be about all I can take for awhile!! More to come after Tuesday!
