The First Cast in the Family (February 15, 2011)

It's official. Maggie made it worse. So her reward? This lovely green cast. I actually took pictures of them putting it on and hope to get them transfered from my phone to the computer (have to find the cable), but for now, here's a picture of her with the cast--and a fever. She was later diagnosed with the flu a day or two later, so she wasn't feeling great when this was taken.

She will be keeping this on for two weeks to help stabilize the bone and prevent it from twisting which wasn't allowing the swelling to subside and alleviate the pressure on the nerves. She also finally received some better meds to help with the pain. So we'll check in on her progress in a couple of weeks!
