Life lesson (hopefully) learned

I'm hoping Sam has learned her lesson that plastic bags really do not work as parachutes. However, she broke her arm jumping on beds and she still does that. Sam's foot/ankle is not broken. It is sprained though. She has yet to walk on it. yeah, she has crawled around and been carried a lot.

Pete took her to the doctor Saturday morning. They came back and her foot was wrapped up with an ace bandage. The X-ray tech was sick that day so they were still waiting on someone to come fill that spot. The doctor even thought about putting a cast on her foot until they knew for sure. Pete said he'd rather not have to go through all of that if it turns out not to be broken. She they had to go back at 1:00. They went and came back. Sam still had just the ace bandage wrapped around her foot. Thankfully nothing was broken though.

She is pretty pathetic. I'm really hoping within a couple of days she will be walking on it.

Poor Sam....not fun! Flying that way could really be dangerous, hope her feet stay on the ground ;)

Kids. You just have to love all their quirky ways! Hope she gets to feeling better soon!

I'm sorry to laugh. But really, in large and active families it's always something, isn't it? I'm glad she's alright and hope she walks soon. And let's hope this lesson wasn't in vain this time.

I am laughing as well! When I read it I think about the family story where one uncle tried to convince the others they could fly and he jumped off the porch roof and broke his leg. He was always doing things like that! I hope her foot is healing nicely and that she is starting to learn!
