Because, you know, instead of homeschooling my kids at home, we take field trips to medical establishments.
The impetus for the trip?
I got Mary Lu up this morning, just like always, only to discover that she couldn't move her right arm.
As in, it was just hanging there.
I honestly couldn't believe it. She'd seemed fine at bedtime! What on earth could have happened?!
Oh my goodness. These two crack.me.up. No further words necessary.
My pediatrician actually called me as we were on our way home (while I was attempting to navigate my way through a highly disorganized McDonald's drive-thru--more on that another time, but suffice it to say my doctor probably thinks I'm a lunatic now) and told me to just call him directly on his cell if it happens again--he can fix it and save us the hospital trip. Perfect! So, so thankful for a wonderful doctor who cares about my kids! (Even if he does think I'm crazy and a horrible mother for ordering my kids food at McDonald's. :) )
And I still don't know how it happened exactly--it's highly possible she was playing with the other kids last night and something happened then, although I think it's actually more likely that she rolled on it the wrong way in her sleep since it seemed fine as of bedtime.
