Maisy Goes to Hospital

Maisy Goes to Hospital

Maisy is having fun bouncing on her trampoline, but then she accidentally falls off and hurts her leg. She goes to hospital where she has an X-ray that shows her leg is broken so she has to have a plaster cast put on it. Maisy has to stay overnight on the children’s ward. She is a little bit homesick but makes friends with another patient in the opposite bed. They swap toys and share presents. When it is time for Maisy to go home, she waves goodbye to her new friend, while balancing on her crutches.
