Nurse Mommy

Good morning friends. I didn't fall off the face of the planet, my little 5 year old daughter got hurt at school monday and her injury has gotten progressively worse. I took her to the dr. yesterday am to find out anything at all, and he did have answers and a neck brace. Someone was reading a book whilst walking and the open book hit my daughter in the neck. It wasn't a big deal until a few hours after she got home...and then the pain started!! We've been doing the warm compress, laying down, ibuprofen/tylenol, etc...and she's just in a lot of pain. We did have a slightly better night last night...but it was only slightly better than the night before. SO, she has been needing my attention every moment of the day and night too:) since Monday afternoon.

The dr. said that her little muscle(sincerely can't remember it's name) was having a spasam and that it will get better. It might take her a week to get there, but it will get better...YEA! It's so hard to see a little one in so much pain and feel so helpless as to giving her comfort! She's being brave and really being fantastic. She's not got much desire for food and can't get enough water...thank goodness for bendy straws!! She can't lift her head off her pillow, so the bendy straw saves the day!!

I'll keep you dear ones posted, and hopefully we'll be able to start sprinkling in some time with stamps...when mommy nurse duty calls, everything else just has to wait!! Thanks for being patient and supportive!
So, how about some Cutting Cafe fun!? I used some great images from the Beautiful Blooms printable stamp set. I think this plant would make a great addition to my kitchen window don't you!? oh to have a vase like this!! I used some Basic Grey paper for my color inspiration along with lemon tart and new leaf cardstock. I colored my plant with copics and used my oval punches on my sentiment.

Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for your concern and well wishes....it's so wonderful to have fantastic friends!!:) See you soon! Make it a great one!

aww, i hope your little pumpkin feels better soon. When ever my little isn't feeling good. I make her a smoothy. Just frozen fruit, cup a milk and a few chunks of frozen yogurt. Easy to make - and lots of fun!!
