to West Palm Beach. For those of you that haven't heard.....last Tuesday during therapy we heard a noise during her knee bends. Gracie said it hurt a little but then got up and walked to my car to go home. We put her in the bed with ice but as the evening went on the pain just got worse. So off we go to the emergency room. After totally blowing the minds of the staff at the emergency room (umm no I have never seen anything like that before) and telling the xray tech exactly how to take the xrays, I sent the pictures to Dr. Paley and he called and told me her femur was broken!! Fast forward thru the shock, panic and hours of crying (me and Gracie) and Wednesday morning first thing we are on a plane to Florida for emergency surgery.
After waiting most of the day in pre op they took her into the operating room at around 7pm. They had to replace the 3 pins where her femur broke because they were all loose. He added another pin to the side of her leg and one in the top of her thigh! (Picture above) So much for her current wardrobe! She stayed in the hospital until Friday evening and we came home on Saturday afternoon. To say the least, it was quite a week!
