What a day. Annabel fell of her little ride-on car, or rather she just fell over with the whole thing. She's getting too big for it but is still fighting over it with Thomas. Anyway, she cried and by the tone of it I knew something was wrong. So I ran to her and pick her up. She's very pale and very upset. She says her arm hurts. So I ice it. She tells me after five minutes it is 'all better now' so I put her in front of her beloved Blue's Clues morning show and quickly post my entry for the Last Scrapper Standing competition. I check on her. She doesn't look right, pale and very quiet. So I pick her up for a cuddle and she screams. Uh-oh.... ring the doctor and we're told to come in straight away. She's still in her jammies but I don't care.
Anyway, long story short: we're off to get X-rays and initial report is no fracture but films will be sent to specialist in town and in a couple of days we'll hear for definete result. She was fine with the X-rays until the $%^#@ technician grabs her arm by the wrist right where it hurts and turns her arm 90 degrees. My poor sweetie got a major shock, not to mention PAIN. And in fact I think she was suffering from a bit of shock because straight after while we were waiting for the initial report she went to sleep on my lap. Back to the doctor to get her arm bandaged and immobilized. She won't use it and flinches every time someone comes near it. She wants to be held and cuddled all the time but flinches when I pick her up. I don't know, my belly-boo (nic name) is a tough one and something tells me that is not normal for a sprained wrist or is that the paranoid mum talking?
Fingers crossed we'll make it through the night without drama.
btw, here's (sorry had to link it, blogger doesn't seem to want to upload my photos today) my entry for last scrapper standing. Circles! I will never again do something like this, I lost track of the hours I spent rolling the paper and then trying to glue it to the transparency. I said 10 in my entry but I'm sure it was more than that (sure felt like it). And you know what? I don't like this layout at all. And knew I wouldn't as I was assembling it but I didn't have any other ideas or time to do something else so there it is... shhh don't tell. Oh and excuse the dirty windows...
