Sept 5, 2019- She was doing cartwheels at school and lost her balance. She fell, landing on her shoulder and elbow. I took her to the ER and they were concerned about a broken elbow due to the swelling. X-ray showed no signs of a break. She is wrapped up pretty tightly. Doctors said if it is still hurting in a week to bring her back and have another X-ray done
Jessica (Cailey)- I think it’s horrible I think the disease is the most horrible thing I’ve ever witnessed.
