poor tessa...

when she was born, the doctor thought that he heard a "pop" and suspected a clavicle fracture. they checked her out and felt that because she had good range of motion and wasn't crying in pain, that she was okay and deferred the xray. shannon however, suspected that something wasn't right and took tess to the doctor yesterday. they sent her for an xray and sure enough, the clavicle was a complete fracture. shannon called me at work sobbing, and told me what happened. she felt so bad that maybe she had aggravated the injury by dressing and holding her wrong, albeit carefully. doctors said to keep the arm immobilized by pinning a long sleeved t-shirt to her shirt at the chest. with the warm july weather she had to become a little more creative so this is the result.
tess is still very content and does not seem to be in any pain.
shannon took the girls to kelly's for a play date and kelly took these pictures. i am having major withdrawls because i have not seen tessa (or scarlett) in 2 days. she still looks like her daddy, especially in this picture. what a doll.

Oh dear, I am sooo sorry that happened. I can only imagine what the mother is feeling right now. At least mom new something was wrong...just last night I had to take my son to the er because he has been complaing about his foot and ankle hurting. I kept telling him it was growing pains and come to find out, he has a fracture. Talk about feeling bad!!! I'm sure that precious one will be just fine!!!
