    Face, Ground. Ground Face

    Well, another deductible met and another broken bone. This child is crazy. She was out riding bikes in our neighbors tennis courts, and hit a crack. She flew off the bike and took the full brunt of the fall with her face. She has a broken arm, and her cheek and nose and forehead are all bruised up pretty good. The docs don't think any facial bones are broken, but with the swelling it was hard to tell, so we'll know more about those today. She gets her hard cast on this after noon. This picture doesn't do it justice. You should see her this morning. Black eye, fat lip, and she has a huge cut on the inside of her mouth. She definitely knows how to do everything all the way. No half-ass attempts at injury for this gal.

    I'll post later about the ultrasound.

    Ouch Emma!

    Sorry to hear what happened. We're waiting for the same things to happen to Aaron and Aimee when they start getting good at riding their bikes.

    At least it was your left arm and not yor right. You can still do homework. ;)

    I am sorry to hear of your accident. I hope that you get better soon. (My advice to Emma, fake it as long as you can.) :)

    Ken's advice is to "milk it for all its worth".

    Get better!!! and make sure everyone signs your cast.
