Today is the Feast Day of St. Therese of Lisieux, my all-time favourite Saint! She is the one I admire the most and aspire to be like and can really relate to.. She has interceded for us many,many times. Thank you, St. Therese.
The 10 year old fell off her bike and hurt her wrist.At first it seemed ok and even feeling a bit better,but then later on as time passed it came back and felt worse; she couldn’t make a fist anymore and screamed in pain trying to bend it upwards, so we went to the ER for an X-ray in case it’s broken.(Her brother broke HIS arm on the trampoline 5 years ago!) and so they took the X-ray which didn’t SHOW a fracture, but the doc said it often doesn’t in that location esp. if a small break;she THINKS it’s just sprained, but as a precaution casted it anyway( half a cast with a tensor bandage) and go back next Friday(just a day BEFORE we leave for our trip!!) for another X-ray. They said if it does have a small fracture it will show calcium deposits growing there(as it heals; filling in the crack) and then they will re-cast it premanantly for 6 weeks or so, but if it’s not there, it’s a sprain and they’ll remove the mini cast. Either way, even if she does end up needing a full cast we’ll get a “fiberglas” one so she can still swim on the trip as this trip’s ALL about water; swimming, at the beach, snorkelling,sailing,etc…poor kid, though, regardless if it’s a sprain or a break it still hurts either way. This is her first time AT the hospital though, except for whenshe was born,that is! 🙂
