Just One Emergency After the Other.

in Family, General

Sorry peeps, we’ve had a rough week.

I’ve been x-rayed mri’d, jabbed, poked, prodded and parted with all kinds of fluids.

I’ve had several more ‘episodes’ where I loose feeling and the use of one or both of my arms (not fun). It comes with the most unbearable feeling … not pain but just as unwanted.

Will and I spent 13 hours in the ER over the weekend … tiring … boring … worrisome.

Lizzy scared us this evening by getting a BIG HONKIN’piece of wood stuck in her leg. There were no tears …

The Doc says, “she’s the toughest kid I’ve ever seen”. I agree :)

Oh … you wanna see?

Leg Pain

She also wanted me to take a picture from the top too, because you can see some blood. HAHA

Leg Wound

Talk to you soon!

    Far out!! Lizzy is amazing! I almost felt pain just looking at the photos. Yikes!

    I hope you are okay, Kim. I hope the tests will show what’s wrong and how to fix it. Thinking of you, xox

    Hello, I have been concerned about you since reading about your paralysis. I have checked your site a few times a day to see if you had written. I hope they figure what is causing your problem and help you very soon. I don’t know I your daughter didn’t cry. I got chills just looking at her pictures. I am sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. Cindi

    OUCH! That must have hurt. Shes a brave one. I hope you and her are feeling better soon. Did you get any answers for why you are having these episodes?

  • Safire April 15, 2008, 5:34 am

    Ouch! She is one tough cookie! Looks kind of cool, though. How far in was it?

    And I hope you find some answers soon!

    Yeouch! That looks painful. And they have no answers from all your tests? Hopefully you get some answers really soon!

    OWIE! That must have hurt like an SOB! I know I would have cried over that…Lizzie’s so brave and tough! I want to say “How did he manage to do it in the first place?” but I would guess she was on top of a fence or playground structure—the one behind the Catholic school across the street from our school is the worst one for that.

    I hope you get some answers soon!

  • Jamie April 15, 2008, 9:01 am

    Is it sad that I’m saying “How much would would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck woods? over and over in my head?

    I must be sick.

    You got a really tough kid. I dont know how you managed to get that photographed. Had i been your child i this case you would have to start running and pampering me. The doc was true, your child is really tough.
