Final injury for 2009

...and it was me.

So, if you all remember, the first injury was Oakley. He fell and needed stitches (in the form of strips) on his eyelid. Then Thomas broke his toe. Then Clover broke her wrist. Thomas broke his other foot. The the catastrophic break of Jul's arm.

We had a good six months of no injuries, or ER visits. It was so nice. Then while in Kingston, Thomas took the kids skating on a lake. My mom and i joined them after they had started. I dont really remember going skating, or taking my skates off.... or going back to my moms house. But i do remember waking up on the ice (kinda) and i remember throwing up.

I was standing on the ice, doing.. i dont know what. Then i felt like my head had been split open by an ax. I fell while standing. Thomas took me to the Napanee Hospital. I got to have xrays. And then i got to be the butt of many jokes. My skull wasnt cracked, thankfully, but the Dr 'saw nothing'. Get it? Yeah.... it was cute the first few times.

So, i had a 'boxers concussion'. That means i bruised both the front and back of my brain. Not fun. But i survived.

While hooked up to the moniters, my heart rate jumped when Thomas touched me. It was really cool. So i told him to tell me something to see if it would race again. He said "I am ready to adopt again". My heart did nothing. I told him it was because i didnt believe him. But it is true. For those of you who are privy to all the details with our previous experience, we have called the CAS and are starting.

Happy New Year to you all! And please pray for our family as we try to grow.

Jordin!!!!! I am in tears! I am sobbing like a baby! I am SOOOO EXCITED for you! Wish you were here so I could give you a big hug! Hoping the process is as smooth as can be.

Sounds like quite the adventure on the ice. Oh my!

Erika said...

Wow - that sounds like a nasty drop!!

And "Oh My" adoption!! Love it, amazing. Watching Amy go through it is so inspiring. (although I know I can't, won't, shouldn't even consider it) I'd love to hear about your previous experience...?

jordin said...

Rachel, I will take a hug when i see you next!!!

Erika, i can tell you all about it next time we get together!

Please keep praying for us... our first meeting didnt happen... the CAS stood us up. We are feeling a little confused.
