If it's not one thing, it's another.....

Wow....yesterday was an eventful day to say the least. I came to work thinking everything was going good. I met Dustin at lunch at the car dealership to look at a car and we were there for a couple of hours when I got the call....Kensley had fallen Monday night and she said she thought she broke her arm, but we all kept saying "Your ok, it'll be fine", but she went to therapy and the therapist said I needed to get her to the doctor, so I called and got her in and left Dustin at the dealership and met mom and Kensley at the doctor's office. They sent her for an X-Ray and we waited around for the results and sure enough her wrist was broken. They got us in at the orthopedics office and in the meantime Tasha had called me to talk to me about something else so I told her about Kensley and she said that her and Darrin would pray for her, so we headed over to TOC and got in there and was waiting on the doctor and by this time Kensley was so delirious, she was sooooo sleepy, she was cracking us up....she would just start laughing at herself and being very silly. Dustin and Suzie both asked if I had given her something to make her like that, but I hadn't she was just being silly. The doctor came in and showed us the x-rays and it wasn't bad at all, you could barely see it. I told him about her new arm brace that we were getting and they had just called that morning to let me know it was in and he seemed to think that would work just fine for the healing process. So I called and got my appt moved up and he put her in a velcro splint until we get hers today. She is doing very well with, she actually likes the splint and she hasn't been crying with pain either.

I was supposed to help cook for Darrin and Tasha last night and I didn't think I would have time since all of this happened with Kensley, but it worked out to where I was able to run home and fix my stuff and take it over there. When I got there I told Tasha that their praying had worked because Kensley's break was not bad and they didn't have to cast it. Prayer really does work and I'm so thankful that we have Him to call on. And Darrin was doing really good last night, he was moving his feet while we were there. God is so good and our church has so much to be thankful for, we've had many obstacles over the past several months and He has been right there with us all.

Oh and by the way I did get a new car....well it's not brand new, but new to me. It is a 2007 Sequoia.

I know your so sad to part with the van..... :) lol! I am happy for your new car, and happier that her arm wasn't badly broken! Maybe you will make it through the rest of the week without any other mishaps :)
