I couldn't believe it last night when I got the call at 7:15 just minutes after guests had started arriving for my CAbi party. It was my husband telling me to meet him at the Emergency Room because it looks like our youngest daughter Audrey might have broken her arm at basketball practice (tripping over her sister of all things). My heart started to race as I ran out the door just thinking to myself can this possibly be happening again?!? Mind you we have had our share of broken bones in this house over the past several months with 2009 alone holding the record with two broken arms and a broken nose. I couldn't bear the thought of another round of visits to the orthopedic doctor's office, dropping out of sports activities and all the rest...not to mention not being able to take showers or go swimming and all the other things that one with a broken arm has to miss out on.
At the hospital they took x-rays of both her right and left hands and arms BUT, to my great JOY, her arm was NOT broken after all. I can't remember the last time I felt so nervous. It was our first false alarm...yeah! She has splint on it now and we have to got to our doctor for a follow up but it looks like with in a day or two she will be just fine. Whew and thank you Lord is all I can say!
