Broken arm!

Hi, need advice from anyone who knows about broken bones! My 5 year old daughter has a slight fracture to her arm just below the elbow. It's very minor and the doctor is confident it will be fine in around 10 days. She was plastered with a back slab rather than a full cast and given a sling. I'm worried about the amount she is still able to move her arm though - she can bend it enough to touch her nose and can lower it past 90 degrees. Should she be able to do this? I feel another trip to a&e coming on!!!
