Updates on Not Me! Monday

Just so you'll know, I started my Not Me! Monday post on Monday but didn't finish it until Tuesday evening.

Tuesday evening Kelvin did take Carleigh to the Texas Children's ER after she and Luke were running through the den. Apparently (I say apparently because I was in the kitchen making grilled cheese sandwiches talking to Kelvin who just entered the door from work and school) she was holding on to the back of Luke's shirt while chasing him. He tripped and fell (I'm not sure on what, because in my house everything is always in the right place, and I never have toys or junk scattered on the floor), and Carleigh kept holding onto the shirt and did a flying leap over Luke directly into the wooden strip at the bottom of our sofa. She immediately began screaming and crying uncontrollably. After we figured out what area of her body was hurt, and after consulting with our sweet nurse friend Mona, Kelvin loaded her in the car and took her to the ER. They were there the entire night, arriving home this morning around 7 a.m. The doctor took x-rays and said she did indeed break her collar bone! Of course they can't cast a collar bone, so she has a sling to keep it still, and Tylenol with codine for the pain. The bad thing is she broke her right side! She won't be able to write for a while, which could pose a problem for school work. I'm sure we'll figure something out.

As for Luke, he recovered quickly from his melt down and was giving her get well kisses to help her feel better before she left. He slept as hard as a rock which is more than I can say for Emma!

Emma, on the other hand, was probably fussy and didn't want to go to sleep last night because her tummy hurt. She threw up twice and had a poopy diaper during the night. I'm hoping it was just that the tomato basil soup and grilled cheese sandwich was too strong for her and we're not facing a stomach virus.
