A trip to A&E πŸ˜„

So following on from the Roller Skating malarkey the anticipated trip to A&E ensured. However, it wasn’t me who needed treatment – but my baby Giraffe 😳

After falling over on Sunday she couldn’t weight bare on her right knee. Β After 2 trips to the Drs – 3 days off school, 3 disturbed nights, a missed course at work, emergency leave – and a partridge in a pear tree – we were advised to go to A&E today.

Let me tell you folks – if you need to go to A&E – take a child – any random child – beg, steal or borrow a child – reason being – after seeing there was a 4.5 hour wait – we waited all of 10 minutes! Β Infact we were in and out within an hour – happy days πŸ˜„ Β The staff at the hospital were amazing, kind and professional – I cannot sing their praises enough!

Anyway the long and short of it was no broken knee-cap, just damaged tissue and bruised ligaments, which naturally I’m happy about – seeing as she’s done no bloody chores at all since Sunday πŸ˜„

21 year old 2nd born drove us to the hospital – a funny moment when he was mistaken for my husband and Arowyn’s Father – I was rather flattered – him less so 😜😜😜

Let’s hope the rest of the week goes smoothly – although it won’t because I’ve got to somehow make a bloody Roman costume for 4th born for tomorrow – I’m just going to roll her up in a white sheet! Β Bloody school – paying me back, yet again, for missing World Book Day – bastards! 😳

  1. Glad to hear it’s nothing major. πŸ™‚
    And I have to tell you that reading that you have to make a ‘bloody Roman costume’ conjures a whole different image to someone in the US who doesn’t use the term ‘bloody’ unless we’re talking about something covered in blood. Which, when you think about Roman history, isn’t completely out of the realm of possibility. HAHA

    1. Ha! I could have used another swear word but try to use that sparingly 😁😁

      No the costume she wore was virgin white – my best sheet no less – no blood in site – although there will be mud no doubt on her return 😁
