Testimony of facebook = Fractured Arm
I now have a testimony of facebook.
(like I needed a reason :)
I was at a friends for mothers group.
The phone rings.
Her husband asks to speak to me.
Your husband hacked your facebook account (he doesn't have his own!) and put up a status that said
"Does anyone know where This Girl loves to Talk is?? Miss A has fallen at school."
Friends husband happened to be on facebook and knew that I was at his house
within a few mins I was located
(I don't even have a mobile phone yet ya'll can track me down!!)
So off to school to pick up a white faced girl who won't move her arm.
Yet she ran down the path and jumped in the car with vigor.
I was doubtful. But the school said I had to go to emergency.
Emergency with 4 kids.
2 with no shoes. 2 extremely dirty from mothers group. No money. No food.
4 hours later
A buckle fracture with cast for 2-3 weeks.
These fractures heal themselves, the cast is just to prevent from banging it and making it worse.
The nurse at first didnt think it was anything bad as Miss A hadn't cried or had any pain medication. She could move and twist her arm. Second opinion of the xray was needed.
At the end of this I was tired, sore, achey and hungry. Irritable kids around me. I was thinking of asking:
Could you admit ME into the hospital?? I could sure use some rest and medication.
The first person in the family (including The Mr and I) to have a cast. She's pretty proud.
They're eating Mcdonald's (rare) and are watching tv (no tv school term here) so they are happy.
Drowning their non existant sorrows.
This made me almost think I need a mobile phone.... but this is first time in 9 years, so the odds are in my favour... I'm usually at home. I mean growing up we never had phones. We are all alive.
Maybe The Mr will get me a phone ....
instead of having to resort to hacking my facebook to find me!!
