Presley's owie

Presley stopped moving her arm on Monday night. I called the doctor on Tuesday, but didn't hear back. I had an appointment today (Wednesday) for Presley's 18 month and Landon's 2 year checkup. Sure enough, her elbow was out of place. The doctor said "She is going to scream" and she manipulated her elbow back into place. We went and got x-rays just in case and I will find out the results by the end of the day. But she is finally using her arm again, so I think she is okay!!

Today's tally: Landon 24 pounds, 10th percentile for weight, 5th percentile for height.
Presley 26 pounds, 75th percentile for weight, 95th percentile for height!!

Presley had a fever, so she couldn't get her last immunization or flu shot. Since Landon is now 2, he was able to get the flu mist!! Wooo Hooo! No needles!!

UPDATE: X-rays were negative!!

That nursemaid's elbow happened to Rachel - It was terrible, and they had to do it twice to get it back in place. (My sister in law w/ 9 kids has had it happen so many times they don't even go in, just let it pop back in by itself!) You must be in shock to have a child in that big of a percentile!!!

Amy, so sorry to hear about Presley's elbow. Glad it's ok. I had to chuckle at her size. My little one (ha ha) is Kate from CHI. She was Makenzie list 12. Any way she is tall and thin. Way above the norm for little girls from China. I look it as a blessing, she is my supermodel in the making. Gorgeous, wild and funny.
