Short version (as short as I can make it): Little girl get hit by a car Feb 19th. Is placed in a full leg cast from mid thigh down for 4 weeks. Goes back at 4 weeks for a check up. Cast is removed, x-rays taken. Fracture (tib-fib just above ankle) is still clearly visible. Also visible: fracture not set correctly and bone are now bowing outward. Family is sent home and told to walk on leg like normal. If the problems in the leg have not fixed themselves in 6 months they will have to rebreak the bones and place pins in.
Just got a call from Mom asking if I can watch the two younger siblings. Mom thinks Little Girl either just sprained her leg or broke it again.
So now, I'm watching my two, my neighbor's two, and these two. Good thing it's a nice day. :D

I seriously hope she gets a different Dr. to help that little girl. This is ridiculous! Keep us posted. Good to know she has someone solid to lean on at a time of need. :)
