For the first time in 16 years, Jon and I went on a short vacation-JUST the two of us! We went to St Pete beach and had a great time. It was a little odd not to have any child with us...but we had a really nice time.
After lunch we swam all afternoon. Usually when I'm at the beach, I'm holding kids, watching kids etc... I swam so much that I was aching by the time I went to bed! I had to take some advil:)
We just stayed one night and then came home on Saturday. I have to admit, I was glad to see my little people, all my kids but my little people were glad to see me! I had planned on surprising Jon with a DVD set to music for our actual anniversary on the 12th (Sunday) so I had scanned all the pictures and given the disc to my friend, she then put it to music for us. She sent it to me via FB and we had to figure out how to download it so we could play it at church Sunday. That involved going to Staples and one of the guys there helping me! I was able to download it to my computer after much work but could never get it off my laptop. Luckily we were able to connect the laptop to the church's system to play it Sunday morning. I really wish I could down load it to the blog. Maybe one of the boys in our church can figure it out, we have a genius, who is only 15 who has more common sense than most 50 year olds:) No one else has been able to figure out how to do it, it really got complicated! Anyhow our pictures are set to the music "Still the One" by Orleans and the other song "Still the One" by Shania Twain - totally separate songs but meaningful to us! Everyone had some good laughs at some of my hairdo's....I took BIG hair to some extremes at times in the early 90's!
So anyhow we get that all squared away, as well as getting clothes out for Sunday....the nurse calls me to tell me something had happened to Selah's elbow..... the nurse was changing her out of her day clothes into her nightgown and she started crying. Her elbow was a little red and sore. So we called the ambulance, not wanting to try and move her ourselves if something was broken. The ambulance crew was wonderful, we went to the local hospital HOPING they would allow her to be seen there (sometimes the smaller hospitals don't want to deal with a complicated case) But since this was just an x-ray, they worked with us, did the x-ray. First they told us that there was no fracture or break, but then someone thought there could be a tiny bit of bone that was off the elbow. I could see it in the picture but they couldn't tell if that was new or old. By that time, she didn't seem bothered by the arm/elbow, there was no redness, swelling or problems. To be on the safe side, they put her in a sling and we will see her orthopedic doctor next week. I talked to him today and he wasn't worried since she does not seem to be in pain, even if it is a small fracture, this sling is all he would do for it.
Then we all watched Jurassic Park III & dream of dinosaurs LOL!
Sunday morning we get up early, I rushed Jon out of the house so I could run to the store and pick up the cake and food for our party. (it was also a surprise for him) Get to the van, and it's DEAD! Luckily I was able to borrow the nurse's brand new sports car-so hard to do LOL and was got everything, arranged it in the Fellowship Hall and got everyone ready....WHEW!
