A little prayer....

Nothing stitching related here today, but I wanted to share just a few words about my daughter Katie.

She fell today at school and injured herself, pretty badly. Let's just say she was standing on the monkey bars and someone jostled her and she fell - straddling the bar and then fell to the ground. The fall to the ground is not what hurt her, it was the straddling part. A frantic call from school, a frantic drive to the ER and 10 stitches later in area that shouldn't have trauma until babies are born....well...that sums it up.

She's resting well now, but she's bedridden for the rest of the week. Would you all be so kind as to leave a comment to cheer her up? She's in a lot of pain and I know a few bright notes would make her day.

My sincere appreciation,
Vonna

    Vonna and Katie-
    Here's a great chance to do some mom-daughter activities... making a lap quilt, stitching a cute pillow top, or creating a cool bead bracelet. Hope Katie is up and about soon... and stay off the monkey bars!
    Hugs,

  13. Katie,
    I am so sorry this happened. When I was 10, I was on my bike and the handle bars came off. I was standing up and pulling on them at the same time. I ended up with a terrible bruise (black then purple) where I would rather not have had. I remember being very sore. I hope you will feel better soon! I know your mom will take good care of you. I know going through this was difficult, but I think you are a brave young lady. I have been meaning to let you know I like your eye glasses. I wear glasses too and have been looking for a knew style. They look good on you. Vonna, give her a hug for me!

    Hugs to Katie and Vonna

    We are praying for you from down the road. What a brave girl you are. I heard about your accident at school tonight and everyone was concerned about you and thinking about you. Your sweet, smiling face will be missed at school this week. You are as strong as they come and we know you'll fight through this. Praying you are feeling better soon and that your sweet family takes extra special care of you.

  27. Katie I'm so sorry to hear about your accident! As a nurse my one concern is that you're not in too much pain and if you are they gave you something for it. Kids shouldn't be in pain! Sending healing vibes your way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow Katie, that sounds painful. As a gymnastics coach and a former gymnast myself, I am all too aware of such injuries....falling on the Bars or the Balance Beam. At least once a week one of my girls takes a fall like that while performing. Very painful and also very scary. We have a prayer circle every night at our team practice and I will make a special prayer request for your speedy recovery. I hope you are doing better soon.

  29. Hiya Katie!!

    I really do hope you'll get on the lightning track of getting well.

    Think about all the fun things you can do while recovering, reading as much as you want, stitching as much as you want, watching as much videos as you want ... well you get the drift :D

    You take care now! :)

  41. Dear Katie, You should ask your mother to tell you something about herself that you do not already know, and you should also tell her something about yourself that she does not already know. This will mark this occasion in a happy way so you will also have something nice to remember about it. And smile :-)

  42. Hi Kathy! I am so sorry to hear about your bad accident!
    I am sure you have been very brave and now I suppose you are as famous as a heroine or a star among your school friends!
    Try and eat lots of chocolate while you are in bed...it may be very helpful sometimes! I wish you to feel better very soon!
    Hugs from Italy, and please, forgive my bad English!

    Hi, there. I just wanted to say that I am so sorry you're hurt, and that I hope you get lots of rest and are better real soon.

    Your mom is so creative, I am sure she will be able to find some fun ways for you to pass the time in bed, and that you'll be up and around in no time.

    I'm so sorry you are hurt Katie. Rest and let everyone take care of you! :D Have Mama dig out a sweet spring project to stitch while you are resting. You can always send your brothers or sister to get you a snack while stitching. Take care and do what the doctor says.
