Things learned in the ER

"Lifting your child by the arm to help them jump over the puddle is NOT a good idea."

The Dorf inadvertantly pulled Vivian's arm out from the wrist or elbow. I had the SUPREME joy of taking her in. I felt like they'd call CAS or something.

Vivian was happy. She got a popsicle AND a new toy after the (cute) doctor popped it back in and lectured me for a little while. The new toy is a lamb called "Boomie"

First time I've EVER been in and out of an ER in an hour.

The same thing happened to my oldest, Zeenee, when she was two. We were at a company picnic and a couple of older kids were swinging her by the arms...I can still remember the look on her poor little face...ouch. We actually had to take her in to the ER twice to get it put back in.

Wouldn't worry about CAS...they're so behind due to cutbacks that they don't have time to look out for the kids who are REALLY being abused. It's such a shame.

Hope the rest of your new year was better than that!
