OUCH!!!!!

Alright, so we go to football practice worrying about Bug right...praying he doesn't get hurt?! Who would have known we were worrying about the wrong child!?!?!? Here's the story....we had moved across the field to watch Bug scrimmage another team, where we had been before there wasn't anyone else close by, where we now were there were quite a few other parents(thank heavens!!) The girls were playing behind me, and just a couple of yards behind us there was the chain link fence separating the school grounds from the park. Ashie was having a ball rattling the fence by shaking it. Lexlee calmly walks over to me and says Ashie's arm is caught. I immediately jumped up thinking she must have stuck her elbow through and bent it and now it was caught. I WISH!!! Her arm was so tangled in the fence I couldn't believe it, it looked like she had woven her little arm elbow through one slot, forearm through the next, and wrist through the following. I couldn't budge it at all, and she was starting to panic. When you count on momma to be able to fix everything, and she can't fix this...what is left but to panic and start screaming?! I thought, either we need to cut this fence or break her arm to get it out. It was swelling more every second. We gathered a crowd quickly(so much for cheering for the scrimmage that was being played), and luckily in that crowd was a nurse, who calmed Ashie, and me because I too was crying at this point. A couple of different guys ran to find something to cut the fence with, and one just happened to have some large tin snips in his truck. After a couple of cuts she was free. The nurse who helped me checked her pulse, and made sure everything looked o.k., another mom got some ice, and I just held my sobbing baby. How in the world did she manage to weave her arm in the fence? I have NO idea, but I am so grateful to everyone who helped out, what would I have done without the nurse and the man who had the snips? What really makes me sick, is that where we had been sitting before, there was also a chain link fence, but we were off by ourselves. Never a dull moment with this little monkey!


This morning her arm is quite swollen, and starting to bruise nicely, but she doesn't seem to be bothered by it hurting. Too scary!!!

That’s so terrible! I’ll be praying that he will get better soon! I always fear Jayden is going to get himself hurt like. I guess I should stop worrying… HE’S A BOY!

Oh my goodness!! We have a chain link fence right behind us where our oldest practices football. I'll be paying better attention to what our middle son is doing from now on.

Glad everything worked out well!!

Glad she's okay...how scary. Scary just to read it can't imagine being there.

Love the giveaways! Maybe your next giveaway should be a Halloween theme. I saw Halloween decorations in the store last week and had to remind myself it was early August.

As a Gammie with 18 grandchildren I have a hard time getting all the birthdays correct. I wish there was some type of small gadget where I could see at a glance whose birthday is coming up next. I've seen birthday calendars but never saw one I liked...they're either too big or not big enough for all of our names. Put your little "noggin'" to work on that one sweet cheeks! Thanks for your kind words on my blogs!
Take Care!

You and Ashie are so fortunate that there were willing and able people on hand to help out! Who would have thought that a chain-link fence could be so dangerous?!? I'm glad to hear that her little arm is okay today!

Glad she was feeling better the next day.
