ER.......again! (Monday night)

Yes, here we are, Kaitlyn's home away from home! She was mowing the lawn, somehow tripped and fell on the edge of the window well...don't ask me how. Screaming in pain, I had no choice. I feared she had broken a rib and possibly punctured a lung. Needless to say, the ER was very busy, so we were there for hours. Luckily her lungs are okay. They were concerned that maybe she had injured her spleen....a rupture would have meant surgery ( a lot of praying at that point!). Turns out she has a rib fracture and will be in pain for several weeks. We finally left at midnight with prescriptions for pain medication. For those of you counting, that now makes 3 ER visits, a 3-day hospital stay with surgery, and I can't even count all the doctor's appointments...all in the last 6 months.
