37: A bigger boy collided with Aria and fell on her leg! about 7:30pm on 02-20-10 | They put the box splint on her to get her off the hill, then splinted it with the cardboard and foam for our trip to Newark Hospital's ER. There they X-Rayed her left leg and found her left Tibea and Fibea were broken, What to do when the Newark Orthopedic Doctors are in Haiti?
38: At Newark's ER, they put on a temporary cast to transfer her to Strong. | The bruising at 12:30am
39: Finally on our way to Strong Hospital's Pediatric ER in Rochester, It was about 1am on 02-21-10. There they x-rayed the leg again and put a full leg cast on her. They semi-sedated her to put the cast on at about 4:00am. She was really tired and groggy when they woke her up.
40: Here the resident is putting a slit in the cast for any swelling the leg may do. We finally left at 8:30 am with her in a wheelchair, with strict instructions that if her toes turned bluish or were cold she immediatly had to come back to get the cast cut off. Oh, the other doctor gave us a pair of crutches and said by the end of the week she would want to use them!
41: Once we got Aria home she wanted to use the bathroom, sit up, then relax, up again! She had a couple of visitors. Aunt Adria brought her a puzzle! She rested some more then got up again and wanted to be in the recliner, then her toes started changing color, so Dotti and Elie came down and we called the ambulance to bring her back to strong at 3:30pm. Once in the right position the blueing in her toes went down, but she was still having so much pain. They did a x-ray to make sure the bones were still set. The doctor explained that she was having muscle cramping and the spasm were causing the bones to rub against each other causing the pain. They cut 1 1/2 inches off the top of the cast making it easier to go to the bathroom, so it was worth the trip. By now it was 8:30pm by the time we got to bed we had been up 36 hours!
