ER Visit

Well, I've had an exciting afternoon. I just got home from the Emergency Room where I had to take my 3 year old. Her brother shut her finger in a closet door and broke it. It snapped it in two and the top part of the bone slid off the bottom part. They tried to fix it buy pulling it back into place but that didn't work very well so it looks like she might have to have surgery to have a pin put in it. Probably tomorrow. We go to the surgeon in the morning at 7:30am.

My husband is out of town and I had to take all 5 kids with me. I almost forgot about my 5 year old who was in school! (yes, I'm working on that mother of the year award) Luckily for me my older daughter reminded me and I called his school and barely got him before he was put on the bus. We swung by to get him on the way to the hospital. 5 hours later we finally got to come home.

I was so awful listening to her cry all the way to the hospital and say over and over, "I hurt momma, I hurt momma". Ripped my heart out. She has it in a splint and has been given pain medication so she is doing okay now. Phew, rough day!

I uploaded these two card photos yesterday so it would be easy for me to do the post today. So I guess I will tell you a little about them.

The first card is a little thank you card I made for my card challenge at Sketches4all. You have to use a Pagemaps sketch. I wanted to make it monochromatic. And I embossed the sentiment and star.

The second card I made at The Color Connection Tour. I actually made the whole card there at the crop but hated the flower I put on it. Well, it has sit to the side now for a little while because I couldn't think of how to fix it. I finally decided to pull off the lime green flower and add this bling to the top. I think it looks much better now. It is glimmer misted and inked within an inch of it's life! lol It was messy to make but super fun too.

Okay, I need to get offline and get the kids ready for bed. Hope you had a less eventful day!!

  4. OMG.. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. That happened to my son when he was 18 months old and we rushed him to the emergency room. Thank goodness it was not broken but his finger was flat as a pancake. It was hard to go through. So I feel your pain. It is so hard to see your baby hurt like that. I hope she does not have to have surgery. I wish her a speedy recovery!! Terri of Two Pink Peas

  8. Oh my gosh.....How horrible. This happened to my then 2 granddaughter, smae thing the stupid door. It amputated her finger at the top knuckle. Squad had to be called because of the bleeding and my son was alone with the two girls. She was taken to Childrens and they reattached the finger. She was put in the splint and had instructions to clean it daily. The reattached part turned black.
    AMAZINGLY at six weeks, while cleaning the finger the black part fell off......she had REGROWN A WHOLE NEW END OF HER FINGER....including fingernail.
    Now your daughter's sounds pretty complicated but little miracles happen. I will be praying for your sweet girl. (((((HUGS)))))

  9. Aw, poor little one! That is just so sad. I'll keep her in my prayers.
