you can get her down
but can't keep her down
after spending 5 hours in the woods
climbing trees, building forts, having adventures
a broken, scratched, tearful, grass stained, leaf covered girl
met me at the back door
gingerly holding an obviously broken arm.
a trip to the local children's hospital
lasted..get this...almost 10 hrs.
no. i. am. not. kidding.
we had to wait long enough past
the last time we ate (5 ish hrs)
then thru shift change
THEN the docs
re-set or reduced
we waited some more.
note to self:
only break bones during business hours
and on an empty stomach.
thankful for an amazing hospital
these days i don't take things like that for granted
thankful we left that place with only a cast
and the promise of complete healing.
yep. this adds some chaos to our journey.
but we are praising God that only an arm was broken
falls from high atop a tree
could be so much worse.
be prepared to sign this cast
and her "real" one she gets next
she takes autographing seriously
