My daughter recently fell getting off the bus and sprained her ankle. Many diagnosed with autism have a high tolerance to pain. She rarely cries and this fall was a tear jerker for her. I knew it was bad when I saw the tears falling quietly and it swelled up to a goose egg. I took a photo to send her father when he asked how bad it was. I am not a nurse so I figured a trip to ER would be best treatment. 7 x-rays later it was determined it was a #2 sprain. Not the worst and certainly will heal in time thankfully.
Meanwhile, the crutches are not the easiest. Because she is on the spectrum, it makes using crutches very interesting. Like how to space the crutches without doing a face plant, how to maneuver around objects without crashing into them, and most importantly, how to remain a tip toe walker with two sticks and one injured foot not cooperating? Good times in my household and at school. The shining aspect, she has friends carrying her backpack for her which encourages social interaction with peers. She also gets to ride the elevator at school. ;-) I really am trying to see the positive in this. It happened, let's deal with it and make it work.
I sat down yesterday and was able to create a card in between running the stairs which is really good exercise for me. I made a card for my daughter's friend who had a birthday in August. We missed it. By a month and half almost. :-( Today we will see her to celebrate and catch up though. :-)
I made this card for the latest challenge at Sentimental Sundays which is black, white, and one more color. I used a Bugaboo image who is are sponsor this week. I popped up his 'stache with foam dots and gave him a light coloring of pearl white from Copic. That's a SRM sticker for the sentiment The gingham print paper is from Lily Bee. I love this paper so! I am down to a tiny scrap. I wrapped a piece of pink twine and made a bow to complete.
