Injury Updates

My wrist is doing fairly well. I finished PT and had almost all of my mobility back. I think it is all back now, but my wrist still has times where it hurts. I was told this would be normal. Most of the time, it is at the end of the day.

Chris’ scar on her forehead is fading. It will always be there, but it is finally starting to lose the pink color.

We have a new injury. AnnaBeth has broken her collar bone… again. All of the kids were outside playing about two weeks ago (the Saturday after we got back) and she fell off of the slide of our playset. Thankfully, the ER was fairly empty and we were in and out within an hour. This is the third time she’s broken a collar bone. She broke her left one when she was almost 2 years old, falling out of bed the first week she was out of a crib. Then when she was 4 and a half, she fell down the stairs at my sister’s house and broke her right one. This time, it’s her left one again. She remembers when she fell down the stairs and was telling the dr and nurses about it and saying that she knows what to do with a broken collar bone. This one is a bit worse than the others. They were both clean breaks, but this one is broken and at an angle. When I saw the x-rays, I cringed. It looks like it would hurt pretty bad. She’s tough and has been fine most days. She isn’t too happy about the fact that she won’t be allowed to start dance until October though.

So, that’s our injury update. My next Dr appointment is Sept 7th and AnnaBeth’s is on the 8th (on her birthday. We’ll probably be celebrating it on the Saturday before since it’s on a Wednesday and Kids Club will be happening at church.) Then on the 9th, I’m heading out to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to spend time with some friends and do some photography.
