See? I Really Have Lost It!

Uh huh. If there was even an inking of a doubt in your mind...I have truly lost my mind to blogging, Yes, I even take photos of my girl in the ER. Hey! It was HER idea. Really. It was. But, as you can see, she is smiling! The ER doc was a sweetie and got her smiling and giggling. All good things if you have to be in an emergency room.

This poor child was battered in 12 places. She must have hit the ground and rolled...and rolled...and rolled. Her knees and elbows were the worst, with the right side *hinges*, (AKA, knee and elbow), the most, "let's see if they make Daddy faint" yucky.

For the record, Daddy did not faint but he was teary eyed. Yes, I know...he is a keeper.

She is healing well, getting re-bandaged twice a day and even has her brother catering to her (He called 6 times during the 3 hours we were in the ER. "How is she now", "Is she in pain?"

Uh huh. He is a keeper too.

I wish you all a sweet Friday with NO bumps, scrapes or bruises!

Love and Hugs,

Susie Q

It'll be a hard night for her to sleep.

Ya know you've got it bad when everything is a photo shoot!! Dinner, drives to WM, hubby moving, making the bed(!), removing wallpaper, trips to doctor/dentist, going shopping, picking veggies in garden, ironing, remodeling just about any section of the house and hubby's boo-boo!! LOL So my little sweet chick, don't feel like you've lost it, in which case I'd have had to been committed by this time!
LOL
Smooches,
Connie

Oh poor Grace! What a trooper to have a big smile on her face like that. Hopefully she will heal quickly and feel better soon!

Susie said...

Poor Grace! I'm sure she's one sore little girl, but thankfully cuts and bruises usually heal quickly!

Sugar Bear said...

Sandi McBride said...

Poor Gracie, she's a trooper...look at that Mona Lisa smile as she sits suffering and knowing they are going to make her suffer more! Poor baby! Yep, Navy guys are always keepers, or at least most of the time, lol! (And no, didn't get the e-mail can you try again? digby@shtc.net should get me!)
hugs
Sandi

Hey Suzy Q; I am so glad to hear she is doing well. It sure looks pretty bad, and she is smiling, what a brave young lady, and a very wonderful brother to worry so about her. Hope you share your fluffing and fall decorating with us, would love to see your outside. I am still working on mine too.

Have a good day tomorrow.
Hugs;
Alaura

She is definitely a trooper. I hurt just looking at her. I'm glad she's doing okay. Kids are always the toughest cookies.

Charli and me said...

Oh poor Grace! Give her a hug from Charli and me.

Sheila said...

Poor Grace! Tell her I hope she heals quickly, and I love how she's so brave with that big beautiful smile!

OOH she'll be feeling it in the morning. But at least she has a great attitude...and I love that you were taking pictures in the ER...the docs had to be laughing!

Valerie said...

-Jennifer said...

any stitches?

Oh well, I've lost it too then, a long long time ago because I carry a camera in my purse and I too take photos of my boy in the ER :)

Alice said...

Oh, no, poor Grace! I hope she's feeling well quickly. And what's wrong with that hospital that they didn't have any pink bandages!

Hope Miss Grace is doing all right. She looks so brave with a smile on her face. Thanks for wishing my Caitlin a Happy Birthday - she was so excited that Grammy's blogging friends would take time to comment on her birthday post. Sally

What a cute little trooper she is!
Isn't it amazing how men sometimes react when their kids are hurt? Mike almost hit the floor when he saw Jamie after his accident (that was back in 1994). I just love these tough guys who really have soft hearts!

Terri said...

Poor baby! Glad she wasn't hurt worse though. Actually, bandages aside, that's a terrific photo of her. She is growing into quite a lovely young woman!

Brenda@Spareminute cottage said...

What a sweet little girl,I hope she is feeling much better now.

Andi said...

I'd say the whole bunch of you are "keepers"! Bless her heart...but Grace still looks pretty even with her bandages. She'll probably be skipping any day now.

Gretchen said...

I think photo shoots in the hospital are perfectly appropriate. Memories, right? Poor Grace. I'm glad her injuries weren't terribly serious. Nice to have a fawning big bro, too. You've raised incredible kids with Brian...er...Bill.

hugs, gretchen

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Poor Grace! That must have been quite a tumble! Hope is healing up and not quite so sore.

Jeanie said...

Oh, Sue, she is so beautiful. And, I think, a blogger at heart (who else would put up with the photo call at the ER!). I hope she heals quickly; that's gotta be tough.
