de ja vu

i think i might be changing my residence to the gilbert hospital.
i seriously just spent the last 2 nights in a row there and its starting to feel a little like home.

the first night, ava tripped and caught the corner of the table.
she split her lip right open. the cut went all the way through. ouch.
she was so tough as they sewed her up and with 4 stitches, a red cherry popsicle, and hopes of a career as a super model lost, we were headed back home.

almost 24 hours later, we were off to the gilbert e.r. .... again.
ava and jack were trying to slide down the banister of the stairs.
ava fell 8 feet from the top of the stairs onto her back.

i was so embarrassed as i went through the from doors of the hospital and saw the same receptionist working.
she was probably thinking what horrible parents. don't they watch their children??
her back was red, bruised and inflamed.
with scares that she broke a rib or injured her kidney, they rushed her into a ct scan.
the worst part of the night was trying to get her to pee into a cup.
then came the news from the doctor. she was going to be fine. she banged up her back muscles pretty bad, but was going to be fine.
i was relieved to hear that my sweet daring girl was going to be okay.

tonight, i am going to watch her like a hawk.
no threepeats, please.
