Recess Adventure for Kennedy

I got a phone call around 10:15 this morning, wondering if I could come to school. Apparently, Kennedy was playing a game of 'chase' with the other kids on the playground at recess and she took a fall. She was crying when I got there so I knew it was something, she usually has a pretty high pain tolerance. I took her to the hospital and lo and behold, she broke her arm (humerus - bone between elbow & shoulder).

They don't cast it up that far, so she has to wear one of those slings that keeps your arm sucked right in to her body for four weeks. And yes, of course, it's her right arm, the one she writes, eats, and does everything else with.

I guess I have to feel a little happy that she was playing 'chase' and that this was a hospital visit not brought on by anything CHARGE-related, just regular ol' kid-playing stuff. I still feel bad for her though. Here she is, slightly later with her new sling on:
Kennedy with her sling on, still saying I Love You, even with her hand inside the sling...what a doll

Hope your arm heals quickly!
