A couple weeks ago, I posted this on Facebook.
I commented how Kate scares me a bit with her flipping on the bars.
And less than 2 hours later, Kate came crashing down (onto a gymnastics mat, but still… crashing down) onto her left arm. The one she writes with, eats with, does everything with. Broken left radius at both the wrist and elbow ends.
It was kind of eerie watching that play out…
Thankfully we’re down to only 6 days left of the cast. She has a dance recital at the end of May for both tumbling and ballet. Hopefully she’ll be able to get her arm strength back in time. If not, well, she’s already been doing one-handed cartwheels on the other arm. She’s learned to write with her right hand.
So yeah, hindsight is 20/20, but we can make lemonade out of our lemons anyway. (Nice! Mixed cliché metaphor!)
