They Think It's a Fracture!

So, Keely has continued to limp. It has been more than five days since it started. And, it has continued to get worse. So, I took her into the emergency room today at Emmanuel (a children's hospital). We actually got seen right away and ended up only being at the hospital for 1.5 hours. They examined her more than once (and more than one person), checked her vitals, and did some x-rays.
Guess what?? Nothing showed up. She's healthy, but she has this mysterious limp. The doctor we saw and the pediactric orthopedic doctor that looked at the x-rays are both fairly certain that it is a toddler fracture. They don't cast it. So, basically we wait for it to heal. We have a follow-up appointment this week before we head up to see my family.

Please be careful Keely...

...Keely, careful means to be careful. (So said Tyson to Keely when I asked her to be careful as she was hanging over the chair.)

Unexpected trip to the doctor

So, I had been doing less than 30 minutes of cardio this morning when I was called back to Kids Club. I thought it was to change Keely's diaper, but NO. Keely had a rash on her one arm and on her back above her diaper. Her rash looked like a burn and was raised. She also was limping.
So, I picked the kids up, called the doctor and headed there immediately. AND...absolutely nothing is wrong (YAY!).
She has something called DERMATOGRAPHIA (also known as dermographism, dermatographism or "skin writing") is a skin disorder seen in 4–5% of the population and is one of the most common types of urticaria,[1] in which the skin becomes raised and inflamed when stroked or rubbed with a dull object.[2]
So, she probably had crawled through the play thing in the room and caused herself to become inflamed.
AND, her limp had mysteriously disappeared too. (The doctor thinks that this could be her being dramatic and not wanting me to leave. WHAT?)

But, at least nothing is really wrong!! Just something that she will deal with through her life and her being dramatic.

Keely's Sentences

Keely is such a character! She is so funny and does the silliest things. I also can't believe how much she is talking. This past week she started saying sentences.
Her favorite thing to say (especially when it is time for bed) is where's Bubba? Where's Daddy? Where's Jakie? Tonight it went even further. Where's Braden? Where's Kenzie?
Yesterday at dinner, we were sitting eating dinner on the deck. She all of a sudden was very upset and stood up in her high chair and said, "I sit by you mommy." (What?)
At bath time she said, "Ready to get out."
WOW! I cannot believe how much she is talking all of a sudden. She does still babble a lot, but wow!
Oh, and on the way home tonight, she was constantly saying and wanting to give me HIGH FIVEs.
