We have resorted to bribery and it FAILED! We did discover that it was painful (duh!) for her to take it on and off, so for the first couple of days we made sure that she took her prescribed pain killer. Now that it's a little better and it's not as painful I don't want to give that to her. It's a narcotic, and I don't want my little girl addicted. We had a follow-up today and the Dr. isn't to worried about her not wearing the splint. His focus is on what to do about the cartilage that is out of place. He's researching some old cases with similar circumstances to determine the plan of action. It's either surgery or, since she is so young, see if it will heal on it's own.
