up the hill to find Charli, on the hard pavement, bleeding on her
leg, and clutching her arm.
"We're coming!" Tyler and Isabelle said running up to
"Sweetie calm down," I said to Charli.
'Mommy! It hurts! Make it stop!!!!!!" Charli said
"Sweetie you need to stop crying and calm down."
"Okay," she said taking a deep breath.
"Good, now tell me what hurts."
"My ankle and my arm. Please make it stop!!!!!!"
"Okay sweetie we're gunna get you to the hospital. The
doctors will help."
Tyler picked her up carefully and we practically ran to the car. We
started driving to the hospital and I called my mom to tell her
what had happened. She was meeting us at the hospital so Aubrey
didn't have to wait. Isabelle said she wanted to stay with
We got to the emergency room and we waited for a good 2 hours.
Finally, they took Charli in for X-Rays. She was really
scared, so I stood in the booth where they take the X-Rays so she
could see me. First they took an X-Ray of her arm, and then her
ankle. We then went into a room and waited for the doctor to come
back with the X-Rays. The doctor came in and put the X-Rays on the
light thing so we could see it. He said Charli had shattered her
elbow and would need surgery to reconstruct it. She also broke her
ankle, she would be in a cast for 1 month and then they would see
how it is.
"Charli,does anything else hurt?"
She showed him her knee, which had a big cut on it. He said she
would need stiches for that. The doctor put on casts on her elbow
and ankle, we set up a date for her surgery, we also had to get her
a wheel chair, because she can't use crutches because of her
elbow, and well her ankle is broken. We pushed her to the car and
drove home. When we got home Tyler brought her bed downstairs into
the living room because she couldn't go up the stairs to get to
her room. She had to take pain medicince because she was in a lot
of pain. My poor baby, 10 years old, a shattered elbow and a broken
elbow, what type of mother am
