broken bones

niko, our 12 year old, broke her arm yesterday. it is a humerus fracture, right up at the top of her arm near her shoulder. ouch! they cannot cast it so it is in a sling and we have to visit an orthopedic surgeon tomorrow morning. she was doing a little pretend hannah montana concert with esme' on top of the picnic table in our back yard and fell off. tony watched the whole thing happen. being a pop star is very dangerous work, evidently.
please keep our family, especially niko, in your thoughts as it looks like she is in for a rough couple months ahead. and i will be sure to keep you all updated as she heals and recovers.
yours in mothering,
erika

Oh no Erika! Poor Niko. I pray she heals quickly. Jeremy works for a company that designs medical devices and he is working on something right now for your daughter's kind of break. Poor girl.
