Update on the Girl. With x-rays!

The girls arm when we got the the hospital:
You can see the full break on the one and the bending on the other.  Brave girl
 All set!
Pink cast is all set, and she's getting use to it.  
I'm beyond proud of my little girl.  She did so well, and she's taking it all in good stride!!

Awesome news, breaks are no fun at all (says the guy who shattered his right wrist).

Soon enough she'll be right as rain.

Ouch... I think that cast needs some stickers... hope she heals quick...

Brave girl indeed. That's a painful break. Glad you were there to care for her and get her to the doc (even if she did miss her ballet lesson).

Thanks Instinct. Always good to hear that from one who has been there!

We tried Dann but she's very particular about some things. She thinks the cast is so pretty she won't let anyone put a thing on it.

I was too Brigid. I think my heart would have broken if I hadn't been able to scoop her up in my arms and just hold her. The DO was a rock. Good genes :)

What a break! Glad you got her to the hospital, and everything is going to be okay.
If if gets itchy, give her a blow dryer, and have her aim it down the cast on "cool." Often just the movement of air is enough to quell the itching!

Well, I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and your comments. I've been to the ER with a kid before, but nothing like this!! We appreciate all the good thoughts!

And Kanani, thanks for the advice, she's already gotten itchy a few times and so I'm ready to help her any way I can.
