This is going to be short because I'm supposed to be taking a nap now that my kids are settling down for theirs.

As I was re-reading my last two posts... and the comments people have left, I realized that I left a few facts out. First off, quite a few people have asked me if Dolly's broken arm was the same limb as her hairline fractured wrist. Erroneously, I've been telling them, "Yes." and then I caught a glimpse of one of the pictures on my screen saver and realized, that no, she fractured her RIGHT wrist back a few months ago.

The other thing is I didn't actually say how Dolly's arm got broken. One reason is because I wasn't there when it happened, but from what we've gathered from Dolly, PC is the one who broke her arm. Dolly says she was "Helping PC to get down" and he fell on her. I'm not really sure what he was climbing or how high he was before he came down on his sister. There wasn't a scratch on PC, so I'm guessing he wasn't really very high at all, and that Dolly wasn't 'helping' him get down... she was probably trying to 'make' him get down and in the struggle, they both crashed. Because of how thoroughly her arm was broken, I'm also guessing that her arm got propped up against something before her brother landed on it - sort of like a log across a canyon style.

Anyway, I should go. I'm wasting precious nap minutes and I need them more than ever with one kid half handicapped, one trying to cling to me every possible minute because he still hasn't gotten over his latest cold and one wailing at me because she's sure she's going to starve to death before the three hours between feedings run out!

And someday I'll actually get the post I was working on Thursday afternoon finished and posted! - Ah! Somebody waileth a summons... I must attend to said child... but at least she can nurse in bed.


  1. How I wish I could hug her right now. I'd be careful about her hurting arm. Soon Texas Lady will be there and I'm sure she'll be able to help you...at least to the watching for mischief. After all she has two very active, curious, boys

  2. Happy USA Thanksgiving Joy. Hope you were able to get a nice nap.

  3. You have been through an awful lot this last year! Aren't you glad it's nearly over? (haha!) I'm praying and hoping this next year, IF we're still left here, is not nearly as eventful - at least this sort of eventful! Dolly seems so cheerful in spite of her broken arm...what a trooper she is. The pictures of her were so sweet and sad at the same time. The x-ray pics tho - yikes! Poor little Dolly.
