My week off goes by way too quickly! Friday was the last day of the pool school session. Savy actually had a private lesson because the other two children in her class didn't show up....nice! She did very well and has graduated to level 4.

Saturday morning, Mimi and Pappi came to visit. We went to lunch, then we went to Wal-Mart to get Savy a new bike (she's definitely outgrown her old one). Mimi and Pappi let her pick the one she wanted, and she was sooooo excited. She had to ride it as soon as we got home.

After Mimi and Pappi left, Savy wanted to ride again. She was doing great, but she turned a little too fast and fell over. There wasn't a scratch or bruise on her (she had on helmet, knee and elbow pads, and gloves), but her arm was really hurting. I was afraid it was broken - Savy's a tough little cookie, and she usually just brushes any boo-boo off (after a little cuddling). We took her to the ER for X-rays...fractured ulna.

She was such a brave girl. The PA and nurse were great too. She got a temporary splint until she's able to see the ortho doc this week.

We didn't get home until almost midnight. She was still in a lot of pain...thank goodness they gave us a prescription for pain meds.

This morning I made her breakfast in bed...chocolate chip pancakes. She's still having pain, but it's a lot better than last night. She spent all morning in bed with the arm elevated.

After the pain medicine kicked in, she decided to get up and move around a little.

Our poor girl! She's not letting it get her down, though...she's already asking when she can ride her bike again.

so cute. Glad she is feeling better and already wants to ride her bike. She is getting so big!

Beautiful bicycle!! I agree with Savy about the blue color. Poor little girl!! Tell her Nanny feels so sorry for her!! Debbie said she has a cast now. That will keep her from hurting it again until it heals. We love you!!
