My Poor Little Jader Boo!


On Saturday we went to a friends house for their daughter's 3rd B-day party. Everything was great til 7:30 when Jade decided she was going to climb up the slide instead of sliding down the slide and the second time she tried she fell off and landed on her arm. It was realy weird cause it was in slow-mo and I didn't see everything that happened. I was talking to my friend Stacey and she was partially blocking my view of the slide. I saw what Jade was doing then all of a sudden she was facing the opposite direction and on the ground screaming. I felt so bad and the first thing I thought was oh no please don't let her have broken her arm. Her arm swelled up pretty quick, but she was able to wiggle her fingers and move her arm so I we decided to watch her before we took her to the ER. When I put her in the truck she used her left arm to grab her baby doll but when she tried to lift up the doll she started screaming again and that made up my mind that I needed to take her in but for some reason Brandi said well if it is still hurting her in the morning we can take her in! (guys just don't understand the power of a mothers intuition) So we had our friend Joe come oven and help Brandi giver her a blessing and shortly after that I took her in to the ER and 4 hours later they confirmed that she fractured her arm right above her elbow. Because it is a soft splint she keeps taking it off then coming to me and saying owie mommy and I'm like you think??? LOL so it will be nice to get the hard cast on her. Last night Lilly decided to freak me out too by falling off the couch right onto the tile! Thank goodness she didn't hurt herself! Needless to say I have been a little stressed, oh well I guess you just have to roll with the punches.

Poor thing!! How's she doing with the cast? I remember when Logan had a cast put on and he did great until it dried. He cried and screamed for like an hour. He did not have fun at all!! He did get a blue cast, though.

Ahh...poor baby! Kids heal so dang fast though. Makenna broke her arm when she was 18 months old and it was healed in two weeks. That girl pulled her hard cast off though too so watch out;)
