Thankful Post 4

>> Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Last night, my Hannah Joy, broke her arm.
I've had to think to come up with some thankfulness out of this.
I'm first thankful that when she got to the ER she was the only one there.  I am thankful it was a broken elbow instead of something much worse.  (she fell off a twin bed standing up on it and caught herself with her elbow and fractured it)  I'm thankful that she was so happy at the hospital and smiling at everyone.  Nothing gets her down.  I'm thankful she was able to communicate to me where it hurt and that today she's been able to communicate to me when it is hurting so I can give her Tylenol.  I'm also thankful that the Tylenol is working.  And I'm so thankful that this Princess of mine is okay and is up and playing with her sisters.  I'm so blessed that her sisters have drawn her little  paper dolls all day and have pampered her completely.  They do whatever she wants the minute she wants it!
I am going to share pictures below from her time at the hospital.  My husband went with her while I stayed with the other children.  He said she was smiling and waving (with her arm that wasn't hurt) to everyone she saw and that everyone there loved her!
She's such a happy girl!
Madi Grace said, "mom, nothing gets her down, she just keeps smiling even when she is hurting."  I can learn from that!
This is right after her x-ray.  She did so well.
That's a radiation blocker she's still holding there.
Here she is as she was at home (after her x-ray) holding her hurt arm so it doesn't move... but she's all smiles as she waits.

 Here she is waiting on discharge.
She has a partial cast because it was swollen and they can't fully cast it until the swelling goes down.  So they casted the back of it and used all the stuff used for a cast to put the cotton around her and wrap her up with casting material but not hardening it on the front because of the swelling.  The sling really gives her more movement because she can now use her other arm instead of using it to hold up her broken arm.
PRAISE GOD that He took/ and is taking good care of her!
A Thankful Mommy, Cassidy

Hannah Joy you are quite the little trouper!!! I squealed like a little piggy when I broke my arm snow-skiing one time... :) I had a nice green cast when it was all said and done. What color are you going to pick out? Maybe you can write a great Christian message on your cast like...Jesus saves... or Jesus protected me... :)

I am glad you are ok, and you are a great testimony to God on how to react in the face of difficult situations!!

What a trooper!! She is such an example to all of us when we are in a similar situation...I know I will remember her if ever I go through something like this.

Finding blessings amidst the trial is exactly what Our Lord wants us to do!

What a testimony of your love for Him and your complete calmness through it all...correction - His calmness!

Hi Cassidy...Hannah Joy is such a pretty name for such a pretty little girl! She is such a brave little girl and also it is such a blessing to have little girls who have been so loving to their little sister through everything! Also, I want to thank you for the kind comment that you shared on my "little space." Sweet and simple blessings to you and your family! Hugs ♥ Teri

Sweet, sweet little Hannah Joy! It was a blessing praying for her last night. She certainly is a special blessing :) and I'm praising the Father that it wasn't something worse.
