Broken :(

Tough week at the Spears house... last Wednesday, Sarah took a tumble off the monkey bars at school.  A trip to the ER revealed that her shoulder wasn't broken, dislocated, or separated... but when her pain was still high on Monday, I took her to the orthopedist.  Turns out, she has a broken collar bone.  Pretty plain on the X-rays, so I'm not sure why the ER doctors didn't see it.  Anyway, the sling is her constant companion for three weeks.
Poor little Sarah was in a lot of pain.

Monday night, it was Candace's turn.  Tumbling and dancing shenanigans in the kitchen led to a collision between Candace's forehead and the granite counter top.  Fortunately, I was able to close the cut up with a butterfly closure and a band-aid... we really didn't want to reappear in the ER so soon!

An unhappy Candace.

Hopefully Thomas doesn't feel like it needs to be his turn next!
