July kicked off with C’s birthday. Another family birthday followed, plus two wedding anniversaries, a family gathering and another anniversary and yesterday July ended.
For us it ended with C’s hand in a cast.
This is probably the worst thing that could happen to anyone in a Maltese summer’s heatwave. An adult could perhaps understand what is going on, but how do you explain it all to a toddler? Luckily enough, C is not in pain and she is really going well with the flow. The cast does not seem to be bothering her that much because she can still do whatever it is that she wants to, though the sling had to go. That much restriction proved too much for her.
For the next three weeks, she can’t swim (God help us) nor wet it. She has to put up with the cast and hopefully it will be removed by the end of the month. In the meantime I’m watching her like a hawk, praying that she does not bang it against something, or fall on it. She’s lucky she does not have a full fracture or any serious damage.
C’s cast has been renamed her Special White Glove. Ask her for her White Glove and she will wave it up and around…till it tires her out and she needs to rest it. Unlike her mother, she’s a little trooper who’s taken all of this with a pinch of salt.
I’m praying the next three weeks will fly by!
