"No more Monkey's jumping on the bed"

My one-year old daughter lately gave us the scare of a lifetime.  The six year old and one year old were jumping on the bed.  Jumping hard our youngest flew 4 feet and landed on her ankle.  She was unable to walk or stand without pain.
We rushed to the office to take x-rays and nothing was broken, growth plates were intact, but she will now have a 3M washable cast for Christmas.
