Well, its never boring here! My youngest child - Olivia (11) is quite the tomboy, she live life with great zest and enjoyment. Here is a picture of her in her current state.
Yes, the grimace is due to pain, and yes, the splints are due to two broken wrists. She had a good time on the playground though. We are currently working our way through the very convoluted system of military healthcare to get her an appointment for her casts.
Here is a pic of her about one year ago.
Yes, its a hospital room. Last year, she got an acute, spontaneous bone infection deep in her hip bone (cause unknown) which was quite resistant to antibiotics. We were in & out of the hospital and she missed an entire semester of school.
She is in good spirits but still in a great deal of pain. She did mention proudly that she has almost gone 12 years without breaking a bone. That's my girl!
