nataya's pink plaster cast

on tuesday night (12.05.09) nataya fell in front of the bathroom. we'd have just done with our routines before bed-time: brushing teeth and washing feet. her feet were still wettish when she was stepping out of the bathroom and so she fell. she cried out loud. i thought just because she was shocked of the sudden fall. but she kept on crying and seemed that she couldn't move her left foot. i asked her to stand up but she didn't want to. i was still thinking that she was shocked, not in pain.  

then, we moved to her bed. i tried to calm her down while changing her clothes but she kept on crying. she refused to read any books nor magazines. tired of crying, she then fell asleep.  

the next day, she still didn't want to stand up. she got cranky all morning. so we decided to take her to the hospital. she got x-rayed. then we knew that she got a small crack in her left leg. OMG. i was shocked. yup. and felt so so so so sorry. i was there when she fell the other night :( how come i didn't hold her when she was stepping out of the bathroom? :(  

the doctor put a plaster cast on her leg. she estimated that it could be taken off around 2 – 4 weeks. she assured us that children's healing are usually fast. 

here are the pics when the doctor was putting on the cast. nataya was a bit hysterical, by the way. she couldn't like doctors, hospitals in ANY ways, althought the doctor was pretty and friendly.
