What A Day...What A Night! ♥

Wow! We had quite a day...and night yesterday! 

It started out as a normal, wonderful Valentine's Day with lots of fun and goodies planned for our party.  Tim and I were finishing up the last details for food, so I sent the girls in to wake up Titus from his late nap.  Almost immediately, we heard the thud followed by wailing.  

And my fellow parents will understand that you can immediately tell when it's bad - not the normal crying.  As soon as I saw Kourtney on the floor, I could tell she wasn't quite right...and it was actually quite scary.  It's hard knowing something is definitely wrong, but not being able to get any answers... Kaelyn did tell us that she had fallen off the ladder of the bunk bed. But we weren't sure if it was her head, her neck, her back...she just wanted to lay down and close her eyes, so I immediately thought concussion. But then noticed she didn't want to really move at all. Aaghh! 

This was a first for us! I've managed to avoid the emergency room for 31 years! We knew we needed to take her in, but weren't sure exactly where - we live in the City of Medicine with a hundred, it seems, options! But a nurse friend recommended the Duke emergency room, so off they went...Tim and Kourtney.  

After many hours of waiting and watching her, Tim was convinced it was her clavicle.  So after 6+ hours, a hundred text messages/pictures/videos back and forth, a CT scan and an x-ray, the doctor came in and told Tim that "Father knows best" - she had broken her clavicle.  As pitiful as she was, it was actually good to finally know what was wrong!



And so life only gets crazier  - adding full-time nurse to my list of responsibilities. She'll recover just in time for the new baby's arrival in 4 weeks. :) 



We ended up having our Valentine party at 12:30 am.  Kourtney hadn't eaten since lunch and was starving!  Not quite the day we had planned, but we still had a good time when they finally got home.  The kiddos finally went to bed at 1:30 and were out in 30 seconds flat.

WOW! What a day! What a night! What a life!!

Gotta love it! :)))
