Yesterday morning my older daughter and I arranged for my granddaughter to come over. She’s the one that I wrote about who makes me laugh. I was looking so forward to spending time with her, as we were going to go skating at the local Roller Rink.
Well, we did go skating.
Unfortunately, I’m not as good at skating anymore as I used to be, and looking back to make sure that she was okay ended up not being such a good idea.
The bad news is that I fell. The good news is that it was at the far end of the rink, so not too many people saw me.
So, I didn’t end up spending a lot of time with my granddaughter, but I was glad to be there so my she and my youngest daughter could have fun.
The manager of the rink was very kind and came to check on me every so often. I really appreciated that, and a few people I know showed their concern and said they would pray for me. I always appreciate people’s prayers.
Today my youngest daughter drove me to the Urgent Care. After a long wait, the provider had X-rays taken. He said that there are no visible fractures, but I have fluid on my elbow, which could indicate a hidden fracture. So, they splinted it and referred me to ortho.
Tonight I’m glad that’s over with! 😁 He he.
I’m so thankful that my daughter was able to drive me around and that we didn’t have any accidents.
I’m thankful for insurance and for those who served us and did their best to help.
I’m also thankful that my daughter and granddaughter had fun skating last night and that no one else got hurt.
And I’m thankful for the kind helpful people at the skating rink and for their prayers.
What about you? Have you ever fallen and had to get a splint? Have you ever been glad something was over? Would you pray that I will be referred to an ortho who will seek the truth of whether my elbow is really broken or not? With my unofficial Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes diagnosis, I’m concerned that it could be dislocated instead and don’t want to be in a cast if I don’t need to be. Thank you in advance for your prayers! ❤
