The Perils of Childhood

My baby is hurt. :( Katie fell yesterday and has since whined every time she tries to walk. So she's crawling everywhere which is unusual for her. But nothing swelled up immediately, and I didn't see any bruising. So we took her to the docs this morning and she has a pulled hip muscle. Poor thing. The Rx? Complete immobility, warm compresses, and Motrin/Tylenol. Warm compresses? Pretty easy. The drugs? She likes 'em. Complete immobility? Yeah, that's gonna be the hard part. You ever try telling a very headstrong 21 month old that she can't do something? It's like waving a piece of raw meat in front of a hungry lion and saying, "NO! You can't have this". I'm thinking she's going to be spending a lot of time in her booster seat, eating snacks, lol.

oh no....poor thing! I honestly don't know HOW you will keep her immobile. She's the same age as Pierce, and he won't sit still for NOTHING! Oh, and he wouldn't tolerate the warm compresses or the meds either, so you're lucky there.

I hope she heals up quickly.
