Oh Zoe!

We didn't think it was possible to break a bone in our family. There are no broken bones at all in Tony's family or mine. But from the way Zoe fell yesterday, and the sound of her scream, and the look on her face as she lay there on the floor not moving, I knew right away that she broke something. Brave girl at the hospital, she didn't even cry. The nurse came in and said a grown man broke his arm in the room down the hall and was crying like a baby. Everyone was impressed. So her arm is broken, but not badly said the doctor. It wasn't swollen very much, so he put in in a splint for a few days then will put a cast on it. Will she have a cast on her arm for her birthday? for the first day of school? Zoe asked. Yes. But maybe it will be pink I said. Then it is ok Zoe decided. How I love that girl.
