Kristy came home from school yesterday with a very sore wrist. She couldn't even pick anything up it hurt so much. I was going to take her to the doctor, but she refused. It wasn't swollen, so I wrapped it up in a tensor bandage.
My girls are not strangers to wrist problems. I don't know how many times they have sprained their wrists playing volley ball.
This is how Kristy hurt it yesterday.
When Kristy was just a wee little cutie. We were putting up one of those tin like sheds. Hubby told the kids to stay inside as the pieces were all over the yard and they were sharp. Well I guess Kristy wanted to go on her swings and came outside, walked on the metal, slipped and sliced her wrist open. I took her to emergency. and the next day they got a specialist in and operated. She sliced some tendons. To this day she can't give the thumbs up as her thumb can't go straight.
Here is a layout I did on this. There is journaling where the smiley sun is.
Her is my lovely Heather. She broke her wrist skateboarding. Well actually it was on a scooter. You know the ones that look like a skateboard but have a handle to steer with. She thought that it sounded wussy to say that she did this on a scooter so she told everyone she broke it while on her skateboard, because that sounded cooler.Last but not least is my daughter Ashley. We were at my sister's place about 1 hour out of town. Ashley took her son's kiddie quad for a ride. Those quads are so small, I didn't think that they went very fast. Well as she was riding it, she went out of our view and flipped it onto herself. She was actually lucky that she just broke her arm/wrist. It wasn't till the doctors finally set it that the specialist told me that the break was so bad they didn't think that they would be able to set it. They thought that they would have had to operate and put pins in it.
See this smile. This was the same day that she broke it. We were suppose to go to my SIL's camp and I said we weren't going to go because she would be sore and want to stay home. She was so upset, she really wanted to go. So here she is at my SIL's camp. When hubby was a teenager he broke his femur. He drove his motor/dirt bike off a cliff in one of his dad's pits. He needed to get a steel rod put in his leg.
Me I haven't broke any bones in my body. I did dislocate my left shoulder in public school. I was teasing a boy and he flipped me and I landed on my arm. Had to have it wrapped for a month or so. That sucked.
Ok onto my day.
I picked up my dad groceries. He also wanted McDonald's again?!? He is NOT a fast food eater, so this surprised me.
I took Ashley driving. We went to the Ministry parking lot as they have areas to practice your parallel parking. She did really good. She wanted to stalk the driving licence office to follow anyone taking their road test. But no one was taking the test today so she was SOL. LOL.
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
1. Been walking everyday
2. Been taking my vitamins (I think everyday teehee)
3.Been so patient with teaching Ashley to drive.
4. Eating healthier than last week
5. Organizing my craft/scrap room
