This was not in my appointment book!




Not exactly what I had planned for tomorrow. I had plans ... realtor luncheon, junior achievement for Kenna's class, work until 5pm those kind of plans however last night my week took a huge U-Turn. I was showing a house that should be closing early next week when I got the call. I don't usually answer my cell phone during a showing but I did pull it out of my pocket to see who was calling. I knew something was wrong as soon as I saw the name. It was my girls gymnastics teacher, Chloe's class was over in 10 minutes and I was just getting ready to leave to pick her up. Although the girls coach is a very good friend of mine I knew she wouldn't be calling to chat during class. So I answered and the first thing she said was Rachel this is not a good call. She went on to say Chloe had an accident during class and I need to come asap. She said that while Chloe was practicing her back-handsprings on the trampoline she fell and hurt her arm and that they heard a very loud pop and that I probably need to take her to the ER to have it checked out. Heather said that Chloe is a pro at her back handsprings and had done about 20-30 before the accident and that she cleared the flip but her elbow gave out and she was pretty sure it was something serious. I decided to call Josh (he is my rock) and tell him what was happening. We decided that I should come home and have him pick her up, I was only 2 minutes from home and we only live 2 minutes from the studio. Josh called me after he picked up Chloe and said that it was bad and he was on his way to the hospital. After the x-rays were complete the ER doc told Josh that Chloe had actually broken a piece of the bone off and that she may need surgery. They wrapped it up in a temporary cast and we had an appointment today with the orthopedic surgeon. My Chloe will be having her second surgery in less than a year tomorrow. My heart breaks for her. She has been so strong through this all but as soon as the doctor mentioned surgery she started to cry. The last surgery was very hard, she was in a lot of pain for quiet a while and she has not forgotten. Please say a little prayer for my girl tomorrow. I know that this could be so much worse but she is my baby, she is only 6 years old and she is scared. I will post tomorrow and let you know how everything went. On the up side she was very excited to see she would be getting a pink cast...that's my girl! ;0)
