Shoulder injury

Not long after my last post I managed to hurt my shoulder quite significantly. Ok, not just my shoulder, but my elbow, hip and caused a fair amount of bruising. This of course put an immediate pause on my crafting challenge.

I was extremely impressed with my 4yr old when I hurt myself. I slipped in the shower and landed at an odd angle and felt like I had ripped my shoulder out. I of course screamed and was crying. She immediately called out to me and ran to help, but the door was locked. My husband came to help too. I was eventually able to calm myself and unlock the door. The whole time my 4 yr old was saying to me "It's ok mum, I am here, I will help, you will be ok." And trying to calm me with a very soothing voice. It was gorgeous.

My husband went off looking for a sling and my 4yr old looked at me in my towel and said "Right, we get you dressed!" And set about getting me clothes and helping me get dressed. She continued to pat my hand and tell me I would be ok. She would help me.

She was so good. She then put my hair up for me and helped her dad get some things ready to take me to the hospital (it was late and the only option. I wanted to wait until the morning to see how I was, but he insisted.)

This was Saturday night and since then my daughter has been my 'big helper' doing what she can to help me, giving me kisses and helping take care of her little sister.

I am lucky I did not break anything, just did muscle and ligament damage. I am slowly getting better. I can move it more now, but can only do a little bit of anything before it starts to ache.

I am so proud of my daughter for being so mature and knowing what to do.

I do have a few posts to put up soon of crafts I did before Christmas. I just need to edit the photos a little then I will have an advent calendar and dream catcher tutorial for you all.

But until my shoulder is better, I won't be doing any crafting.
