Oh my this week sure has gone by in a blur so much so that after Monday’s post I never got back to blog or to read blogs lol.
In family news on Monday night my Princess Elizabeth who is the most adventerous of my little monkeys decided she needed an adventure to visit her sisters top bunk bed to see what it was like up there. Well I’m awful afraid to say she didn’t get to see it for to long as she fell off and broke her collarbone. After a nightmare visit to A + E which resulted in her waiting 7 hours in the middle of the night to be told we had to attend the clinic in Tullamore, the two hospitals are connected in so far as all bone breakages are sent onto Tullamore, but that is a rant for another time and it won’t go by without me doing something about it. Afterall we are our childrens advocates and if we don’t speak up for them when we need to who will ?
Throughout this ordeal Elizabeth was so brave as it needs to be noted she’s not yet 3 and was in a fair amount of pain, scared and didn’t know what was going on a lot of the time and was exhausted tired. We finally got to leave the hospital after 4.15am after being there from before 9.30pm got home managed to grab a few hours sleep as with the other small children and Evelyn the house just can’t stop so we were all back up and doing our normal things by 7.30am. We had to then head to the Orthopedic Trauma Clinic in Tullamore with her where we have to return in 3 weeks to check on how the bone is healing. We have to keep it immobilised as much as we can, which I may add is near impossible in an active wee girl and just keep some pain medication in her to ease her pain and just wait it out !
As Elizabeth likes to say I’m her other hand as she broke her left collarbone and is left handed she is able to do little to nothing for herself so I need to be beside her most of the day to help with little things for her. Here is a picture of the patient who on Wednesday was so tired told me she wanted a pj day and I being way to tired to argue agreed lol, of course by Thursday she was away again trying to do fairy dances for me !
I did eventually get to finish the market bag I was crocheting for my cousins birthday towards the end of last week. I’m going to just add a few flowers to the front for a bit of interest and wrap it up. I also got another couple of rows done on the back of the cushion cover I’m doing, not much as this was only last night I did this.
This week I am hoping to get more done on the cushion cover and finish off some knitting wip’s that are on my list but that will depend on Princess Elizabeth and any other family happenings. Never a dull moment lol.
I am also hoping to get the remainder of my posts for the week in this week so I’m hoping you’ll pop back to join me then.
Looking forward to catching up with you all.
