As many of you know, my mom is still in the hospital recovering from heart surgery (finally out of ICU this week!!) Our house has been less than bubbly much the time, even with a graduation, Memorial day picnic and a prom...let's just say it's been a long hard whirlwind of overwhelmed. (I know you can all relate!) In the midst of all this, my daughter has been a trooper; coming and going to the hospital without a peep, getting her homework done, keeping her grades up, practicing her parade pieces for marching band, thinking about colleges and majors, babysitting at church on nights of bible study, raising $ for soccer camp AND just last week winning a sectional title in her track and field event: Triple jump! We are so proud!
But, to go back a bit, 3 weeks ago, she was practicing her high jump and landed on her back on the bar. She ended up with quite a bruise (and always has a bruise SOMEWHERE, athlete that she is!) and swelling but got better and kept going on in life and sports. Recently, though, her left leg started to get numb on and off, so we made an appointment with the Chiropracter...long story short? After her Tuesday appointment, the stretching (all good) caused a tendon in her inner thigh to spasm painfully...today....on the day she is jumping for qualification to the state tournament!!!!!
SO, we were in the the drs. office this morning at 7 am for more stretching and ice and such. The Dr. told my DD that it was up to her to decide what to do, but that if the pain was too great, not to jump (hop, skip and jump, actually). But I have a tough girl. She listened to a mother's heart as I drove her to school, but I do not know if she will jump. It's likely the event is happening right this minute.....
I am not at the qualifier meet because it is too far away to take two cars and my DH went from work (half as far for him from work) so I have no idea how she is doing, but I wanted to share the card I made for her when she gets home....what do you think?? I used SU's Dazzlin' diamond glitter and it is everywhere!! But doesn't she deserve some bling?? :)
