A couple hours later we found that she had a fractured finger, and didn't (thankfully) need stitches because of the fracture right at the tip. She just got a nice bandage, and some drugs. The doctor recommended I give her codine to help with the pain and get her to sleep. Instead of making her sleep, she went crazy! It made her hyper and druggy. It was the WORST combo for our already clumsy girl. So we loaded her in the van and got some ice cream. She finally took a nap after we got home, 3 hours later! I also gave her the doll I made for her birthday because she definately needed a friend.
All seems to be healing well, and with some ibuprophen she seems to be doing okay with the pain. At her re-check she got a pretty pink bandage with purple hearts. If only she were 6 it would be really cool to show off to her friends. Right now it is cute in a pathetic sort of way. Poor baby. I am thinking with all these injuries she will be a pro with this medical stuff by the time she is 18, and become a very successful doctor. All I know is that she is one tough little girl and will be successful at whatever she does. It takes her no time at all to get back into trouble!
