i feel like this is the third update in the now trilogy of madison's broken nose.
after seeing the doctor tuesday, we were referred to an ENT yesterday.
the doctor's office had lead us to believe they'd "snap" it back into place in the office.
well, first of all, there is no "snapping" back into place in the office. she'll actually being having surgery in the morning to put it back in place, under general anesthesia & all. goodness.
& yes you're right, we could opt against the surgery. i've heard stories of coaches popping broken noses into place etc. however, she's a young female with quite a crooked nose. if we opted to wait and see if it healed well on its own, she would probably continue to have the persistent headache she's had since the injury. also, waiting means waiting at least a year for the healing to finish. at that point, if it's still noticeably crooked and we desire to do surgery, they would need to re-break it, scrape all the new bone growth and then realign the nose. a much more involved surgery. and in the mean time, she would continue to have headaches & probably some sinus issues. etc.
she's a trooper though. no complaints from her. however i've been so impressed with her passion & ownership of her squad. when i told her she probably wouldn't feel well enough the day after surgery to go watch them compete ( in a very loud gym mind you , in a competition that lasts for hours), she was all "mom, that's my team. i have to be there to cheer them on". seriously that was the most upset she's been since the injury. well alrighty, no holding her back!
thank you to those of you who have been so super sweet & encouraging. while it's certainly no life threatening issue, ya'll are the best.
on another super fun note, the country living fair will be here this weekend. & by here, i mean around the corner from my home! i'm beyond excited! i plan to swing by friday afternoon after her surgery, hoping they won't be all sold out!
