ER Visit

This morning found Amelia and I at the ER for a little visit. She was doing a fancy trick from the slide to bean bag and dislocated her elbow. I was in the shower when all the excitement went down. Amelia is quite the crier and such so sometimes it is hard to tell when she is really in distress. This time, I had no problem distinguishing her distress. My VT, Christine, came quickly over to take the boys home while I went with Mia to the ER. Our doctor's office was booked up clear through 4 pm with appts today so it was the ER for us. We were in and out very quickly. She ended up dislocating the two bones that connect to the elbow (commonly called Nursemaid's Elbow). The Dr popped the bones back in place, gave her some pain medicine, some stickers, and discharge papers. I am so relieved she did not break her arm.

I was back at the hospital an hour later for my own appt. I was getting over my sinus infection and finally feeling much better yesterday morning. After lunch my nose started running again and wham! I had a full blown infection, fever, chills, headache, and low muscle tone. Toasts to amoxicillian! Here's to modern medicine baby!

Not much else to report about the weekend. Justin worked, actually got the laundry done, fed the Elder's on Saturday, spray painted a little table, and appliqued two shirts. The house is a mess and all I want to do is lay on the couch and cry. Boo hoo! LOL.

**Phillip's newest phrase is "I DID IT!" He is all about doing it himself, if he gets some help he still claims all the praise. So endearing! Everett is working on a bottom tooth. Deb sold me a fun little high chair that clips to the table. Everett LOVES being at the table with everyone. The chair swivels around so I can feed him while sitting on the bench or on the chair.
