Week 2 day 1 cancelled for RyLee

My poor RyLee Kay. :( Yesterday was a bit traumatic for my baby. ( Who happens to be 11 today)

She was at a friends house yesterday playing. While they were playing she was running in and out of the house and while doing that she accidentally slammed her finger in the door. From what my husband told me ,it was a solid core fire door. Its a heavy door and shuts fast!

Her little friend called us and said; "Its an emergency!" "RyLee hurt her finger in the door and the nail popped out!" Bless her little heart.... We dropped everything and drove to get her......

Making a long story short, she lost her nail. The entire thing and the skin that goes over the nail (normally the part of the nail that's under the skin... is the skin she lost)She now has a fake nail with 2 stitches in it. Its holding the nail in place so the skin wont close down and not allow a new nail to grow.

What broke my heart was watching RyLee panic when they were numbing her finger. I have never seen RyLee panic before.... but she had a full blown panic attack while the were numbing her hand to clean it. The crying the babbling... and then she made her self sick.... literally.Its so hard to see your kids in pain and sacred and you cant comfort them while in that state.... My heart was just breaking inside for her....

Now... it was bad enough feeling this way... and all you want to do is comfort this child......and then your husband and other daughter are turning white, getting hot, feeling sick and putting their heads between their legs! I didn't know who to tend too! I felt like Florance Nightingale going back and forth from patient to patient! Putting cold towls on the back of necks.... rubbing backs....it was really sad....

7 hours later we made it home (12:30 this morning). Its now 9:02 am and Ry is still sleeping. She was such a little trouper....

I was going to surprise her and let her have a half day of school today... Its her birthday.... but now... she gets the entire day off!

If you will, after reading this... will you pray for Miss RyLee? Thanks so much!

Till next time....

Oh! Poor RyLee! Glad to know that you were able to get her in and they expect the nail to grow back! Between that & her birthday -- I say take the whole week off! :)
Praying for healing!
Lee
PS Keep up the good work, Florence Nightingale!

Oh, poor thing! I hope she's recovered. It sounds like a perfect day for cuddling on the couch and reading together.

wow, praying for your RyLee, so sad. Wow what an event! I would have been the one with my head between my knees. My son once cut himself with a butter knife...I started running in circles wondering if we should call 911...I don't do well with blood.

how wonderful that the nail can grow back, wow.

I hope her week gets much, much better.
