break a leg!

My girl is fragile.

She has had four broken bones in her arms. On Wednesday, she added another bone to her tally: a spiral fracture of the tibia, courtesy of a quick move in a game of Capture the Flag.

Poor little bunny. It’s tough to be stuck on a couch for days on end, unable to so much as shift position without someone to help you hold up the massive cast of doom. It’s hard to be stuck on one floor of the house, unable to sleep in your own bed upstairs. It’s seriously disappointing to have it happen during your favorite season of the year, just before Girl Scout Camp and your birthday and Halloween.

But my girl is an amazing girl. She thanks the x-ray techs and the people in the cast room so graciously. She finds things to occupy her time while stuck at home. She entertains friends at couch-side, and even stays awake (when she is soooo exhausted) to watch Glee with her mama. She keeps her spirits up through it all.

I love my girl so much. She impresses me over and over again with her grace under pressure.

I’m grateful for the outpouring of love and support during our hard week!

  1. Poor little bunny! This is WAYYY worse than a man-cold, which is what I wish she had instead – if she had to have something. Big hugs and kisses to the real Speshy.


    1. I have been contemplating making a cast for the real Speshy, in homage to the broken arm the doctors gave him way back when… but his little “legs” are so short! Poor little bunny…
