OOPS!



Did I say I would be back to happy, healthy posts this week?


Um, I may have lied.




Here is how my evening played out yesterday... I went to work, just like I do every Sunday evening. At about 7pm my boss approached my with an odd look on her face and said, "Lily is OK, but Jay is on line one and, um, she is OK, but he is taking Lily to the emergency room." I began to cry as I made my way to the phone to see what happened to my baby. Apparently there was an incident at the park. It involved one slide, one little girl, and one (large) daddy. I quickly finished up a few things at work and made my way to the hospital. By the time I got there they were just waiting for the results of the x-ray the doc had taken of Lily's knee to see if it was broken or not. My sister was there too -- Jay had called her in kind of a panic, so she met him there to help him through. (Have I mentioned lately how GREAT she is? ) As we waited, Lily gave me the recap of how things went down. As she sat holding her knee, saying "ow" occasionally she told this story: "got a boo-boo. I stuck. daddy be tareful swide. too big."
Anyway, the results came back negative for a tear or break, so it is just a sprain. (Thank you Lord.) They wrapped her knee in an ace bandage and sent us on our way. She slept OK last night, but it is going to be strange having an almost 3 year old who "can't walk". So far I just have her set up on the couch with some snacks, her juice, and her Einsteins video. I am spoiling the crap outta her today...she has already had candy, chocolate, pretzels, and she is currently eating a sucker. Her wish is my command. "Momma HODE you!" OK baby, here I come!
Hubby has already called about 10 times today, the guilt is really eating away at him, poor guy. Accidents happen. She's gonna be just fine, but keep her in your prayers (and Jay too!)
Thank you! And, I promise happy healthy posts ARE coming!

Oh gosh...poor Lily and Jay (and Mom)!!! I'm sorry this happened, but sooooo glad it's only a sprain. I hope she's walking and feeling better soon.

Tell Jay that the internet said he shouldn't be so hard on himself. He is a great dad and accidents just happen sometimes.

Awwwww, poor little baby. I would be spoiling her silly as well.

Dannye said...

Poor baby (both Lily and Jay...), sounds like Lily is loving every minute of being spoiled, but hey it's a Mom's perrogative right??

glad to hear it's not broken or torn, and hopefully the sprain will heal quickly, although you've got your work cut out for you keeping her off of it...

get well soon sweetie pie!!

Carrie said...

What a rough time for everyone. I sure hope Lilly's knee is feeling better soon and Jay doesn't beat himself up over this. It really stinks when accidents like this happen but I know Lilly still loves her daddy! Sending you all hugs!!!!
