Didn't I say "Not Break Anything?"

if you read the previous post - I think I posted about not breaking anything while riding the horses .... well, 1 ambulance ride, 1 ER visit, 1 referral, and 1 visit back to our favorite Ortho Doc = a broken elbow - in 2 places no less - URGH ! Yep - same dd - #2 - but not from riding - she was FEEDING the horses, and tripped over a cut down piece of bamboo - landed hard on her elbow - and that was that!

I rode in the ambulance with her - since we were so far from home - it was easier on dh and the rest of the kids. They went to Chuck E Cheese - we went to the ER. We were actually in and out pretty quick - although they waited until our Ortho guy saw the x-rays in case he wanted to do surgery - urgh again. No surgery - barely. He said if the one break was just a bit worse, that would have been different as well.

BRIGHT PINK cast - just like mom's last one - although it looks so much better on her then on me !

I did blow my eating that Sunday - the stress and all - so Monday I fasted, and today I'll limit myself to liquids until dinnertime. We're doing Chinese Buffet - so I'll try and stick to salad and U-peel shrimp. High in Sodium - so I'll be careful the rest of the week.

Tomorrow I'll be making the italian sausage with black eyed peas and kale. Thursday I'll do a bottom round roast in the crock. Plus I'll make the red lentils as well - maybe tomorrow - in case the kids don't like the black eyed peas - they'll have another option.

Oh man...that girl needs bubble wrap. Give her a hug from Aunt Farmee, please. And yes, you get one, too.
