Like I said before DH has been off work for almost 2 weeks with vacation. It was a really good thing he was. We have been having difficulties around here a plenty. Frist we are approached by one of the local police. He proceeds to tell us that our dog supposidly bit another dog. Huhhhhh? The only opening in the fence that we have is a 1" - 1 1/2" in gap at the bottom of the gate. We have a 6 1/2 foot privacy fence that goes all the way around the yard. So we freak! Then we wait most of the week for the dog catcher to come.... Needless to say we are scared that our dog will be taken and put down. Well, he come by and talks to us. He said we did everything right and he doesn't see how it was possible for our dog to get his snout out of the yard to bite the other dog. Or for the other dog to have gotten under our fence (Shar-pei). By the way we have a rottie/chow mix. If he had gotten a hold of the other dog I'm fairly certain there would have been a bottom bite mark. Which there wasn't. So that was the begining of the week. Think it won't get any worse... Guess again.

Usually on Fridays the monsters go and visit Grandma. So they went, we went home to get ready to go out. I'm just out of the shower when the cell phones start going crazy...... Teenage monster is down and can't get up...... We take off like a bat out of hell to get to her. Get to the park where they are playing and sure enough. She is down and can't get up..... Laying on her side. So DH looks at where it hurts and she says that it wasn't a pop it was a crack that she heard. We carry her to the truck... (the hospital is 300ft from where we are standing, no point in calling an ambulance). Get her to emergency, they take x-rays. Sure enough its broke. And it is the type of break that will require surgery. So off to the Children's hospital we go. They do surgery at 1:30am. She got released from the hospital at 2pm on Saturday. She is doing really well. Getting use to the crutches. Luckily, she doesn't have a cast they have her in an immobilizer. In 10 days we go to she the doctor that did the surgery to see what happens next.

So now there will be no band camp for this year. I am hoping that she will be able to still be in the orchestra band for the 9th grade. This is really screwing up a lot for her. Good thing DH already had this part of his vacation. The next one will be the end of the summer when she will be up and moving around again.

Gotta Run
