Monday, Monday

What a Monday!

Monday morning, I needed to call and make an appointment for the doctor to look at Alex's wrist to see if it was broken. As I was waiting for the office to open, my mother called. She'd been taken by ambulance to the hospital during the night.

My mom hadn't been able to get ahold of my sister (who lives a lot closer) so I called her and made a few other calls. Then, I called the doctor's office and they could get me in if we could be there in 40 minutes! So, we hurried to get ready and I took Alex to the doctor.

We had to go to the doctor, then the x-ray room, then back to the doctor, then to the splint/cast area. Yep! Her wrist was broken! What a trooper, though.

Then, we went home and loaded up all of our dirty clothes (from camp), computers, school materials, etc, and packed the car and headed to my mom's - 4 hours away. I stayed Monday night in the hospital with my mom and she got released Tuesday. She's doing better, though she still needs to run more tests to find out what was wrong.

So, the photo is kind of a 'trick' photo. Alex wasn't hospitalized for her broken wrist, but she spent 2 days in the hospital room with her Grams! We are praising God that Alex wasn't hurt worse and that my mom was released and is doing so well! But, what a crazy Monday!

Oh my goodness! I saw that photo and panicked! I am so sorry to here that the wrist is broken. Poor girl. You are right, that girl sure is a trooper. Also happy to hear that your mom is back at home. I sure hope that the results are in soon and that it is not something too bad. I can only imagine what your day must have been like. HUGZ!

Good grief! You must be frazzled! What was up with your mom? Do you think she was having a heart attack or a stroke or something? Poor thing.
I just have to admire how you and Alex just quickly got your stuff together and went. You didn't wait by the phone, you just went. That is so rare these days. Good for you!
I'm glad you were able to get into a doctor for Alex to be seen before you left, too. It's funny, both my boys have broken things, a foot and an elbow, and the breaks were far easier to deal with than sprains. Does she have to be in the cast for six weeks? Give her a hug from me.
And here's a ((hug)) for you because you've really been through it, too.
