The Waterproof Lining
So, today's visit to the orthopedist wasn't quite the outcome we had hoped for. Turns out Clare has an almost invisible radial neck fracture around her elbow. In the grand scheme of things, it's a minor injury, but a cast is the only treatment. Fortunately, it's just for three weeks. Even better, we were directed to a waterproof cover for it that should enable her to swim and take part in all the planned activities on our vacation. Phew.
I can't resist the opportunity to post a picture of Danny sporting his own cast (at 17 months). Tim has gone 36 years, and I 35, with nary a broken bone. Furthermore, it's not like our children rival Evel Knievel for crazy stunts. Go figure!
To wrap up the medical updates: Danny was diagnosed with strep throat on Monday. By the miracle of antibiotics, he is already back to his old self. And so we head out on our summer adventures perfectly happy, if not quite perfectly healthy!
