Mackenzie wrist surgery

The doctors decided that they needed to put pins in Mackenzie's arm because her bone wasn't healing right.  It was at a 32 degree angle.  So they did the surgery a couple days ago.  Mackenzie was very worried about this one ( I think since she had gone through this a few weeks ago)  She told me very seriously that when it was time for her surgery she was going to run away.  However, when it was time for her to go back, she just walked back there all by herself!  She is such an awesome girl.  She has never complained about anything and all the Doctors say she is the BEST kid!  I am so proud of her!  They were able to fix her arm without making an incision so that is good.  They just stuck 2 pins in.  I have to say that the care we got at the hospital was awesome!  I was very impressed for a base hospital!!  When she got home from the hospital she was doing great.  She just watched movies (even a friend came over to keep her company) She will be in a cast for 6 more weeks!  But she was pretty happy about this cast because it is striped with glow in the dark!  Again, she was overwhelmed with love from friends and family!  Seriously, so many people went out of their way to make sure Kenzie was happy!!  We are so blessed!  She is working on thank you cards......which might take awhile :)  We will all be so glad when this is all over and she can resume normal activities!
