Life 365: Accidents Happen

Accidents happen, right? And we as parents are supposed to handle them in a particular way.
Today this little stinker decided to jump off the couch (I am assuming bc I was upstairs packing to go the the park).
I ran down to screaming and found her sitting on the ground saying "my elbow"...
she's one folks- so I thought does she really mean her elbow or shoulder?

Leah typically shakes things off, but I quickly realized something was wrong.
She couldn't/wouldn't move her arm.
She had it pulled into her body instintively.
And she was shaking from pain.

Insert sad face and a trip to the ER.
Honestly, it could have been way worse.
We got in and out within 2 hrs.
I did have to hold her down for Xrays and damaged me.
Hence the popsicle pic. I felt SO bad.

Sorry for the photo quality (cellphones).
Anyways, long story short... dislocated, popped back in place, 2 mins later she was smiling and using it!
*sigh. Im ready for vacation...
