Please Pray For Little Miss Bright Eyes

The night before Tuesday's move our little 
BRIGHT EYES
took a tumble down the steps.

In all the confusion of the move one of the boys
left the door to the stairs open and 
the next thing my daughter heard was a 
THUNK!

Mimi took her to the ER and they did an
Xray of her leg, hip & foot
and didn't see anything.

However, yesterday, she would not 
put any weight on her foot so 
back to an ER in their new hometown.

It appears she MAY have a fractured femur.
She has to see an orthopedist today
and MAY have to have a cast
for six to eight weeks.

Say a little prayer for her and her Mama.
It is always tough enough to move to a new place,
find a new doctor and try to navigate the 
waters of being in a strange place.

Thanks so much.
Wish I could give her a big Nana hug but I am 
reduced to Facetime...where she 
HUGS the screen.
Hope YOUR day is a good one!

Oh dear. That is NOT the way to begin life in a new place, is it? Poor little gal. She will undoubtedly bounce back with no repercussions. Concerning your Wednesday post, my son also called them "stunks"! (It was my daughter who spoke about "squirrelmonks"). -Jenn

Oh, no! Poor little baby ... and the rest of you, too.

Kelley said...

Oh, Diana. I am SO very sorry about all of this. You and your hubby must be fraught over it, being so far away now. Your poor baby girl Mommy, too, who is wishing she could turn back the clock and change the past... Fortunately ONLY a possible broken bone is as bad as it will hopefully get. Prayers for your beautiful granddaughter. Bless her heart!

Hugs to you,
Kelley~

Oh my goodness, those toddlers are so quick! Prayers for fast and complete healing.

Bethany Carson said...

Ouch, poor girl! She's in my prayers!

Diana Ferguson said...

You've got that prayer!

Linda said...

Those home accidents are always "in small corners" or in your grandbaby's case the stairs. Having lived in the land of small (but steep!) stairs, I am the only one who ever made a fall. Sorry that she will have a cast, but broken bones do heal. Sweet that she hugs the computer screen. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

Bless her little heart, and your's too! I'm so sorry she's in pain, and upset the first ER visit didn't find this fracture! Prayers to you and the family.

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Hi Diana, glad to see you back. I just got back myself from vacation. I hope bright eyes heals and it's not serious. I downloaded your book you wrote and read it. I really enjoyed reading it and you did a great job. Have a nice day Diana and a good weekend.

Jettie said...

give her a facetime hug for me. Yes, moving and accidents do happen but they are never fun.

Stephanie said...

Oh no!!! Poor little Bright Eyes! Please know that she is in my prayers, dear friend, as is her mother. It's never easy to see our precious little ones in pain. Hugs to you!

Pam Kessler said...

Well, that doesn't sound good. Hopefully, if she has to have one, she'll get a bright pink cast she can decorate with unicorn and rainbow stickers :)

tammy j said...

oh my gosh! what a thing to happen during a move. as if it's not hard enough!
amazed that they didn't find it with the first xrays. but so glad the new one did.
babies are amazingly resilient. those little bones will heal in no time! XOXO♥

Hello Dear, Yes, I will pray for Little Brite Eyes... Also for all of them, as we know moving is so stressful and with a wee one with a cast oh my..
Keep us informed!!
Hugs, Roxy.

Lisa Mangold said...

I am so sorry and I am praying for each of you and for the Dr. xo

Patty Patterson said...

Oh, no! And with my boys there were times when breaks did not show up on the first x-ray. With Andrew, he broke the growth plate in his shoulder and they missed it the first go around. But - after a few weeks of him complaining I took him back and they caught it. Hopefully, your Little Miss Bright Eyes will be just fine. Prayers are going up for her now.

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage said...

Poor baby! When it rains it pours, eh? I will pray for your little angel AND her mama AND you! This must be very hard for you, my friend.

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

oh no. sure hope she heals soon. prayers for her and mama. I remember when my little guy fell down our stairs when he was 18 months...i remember it too well. thankfully no injuries

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Poor baby! My husband accidentally stepped on my daughters leg when she was 2. We were outside playing vollyball and he backed up and didn't see her. She had a fracture and wore a cast for 8 weeks. It was from her ankle to hip but it didn't slow her down a bit. She could run with the cast on. Kids are amazing. My husband felt terrible and my now 13 year old daughter occasionally reminds him of it.
I'm glad your baby wasn't seriously hurt tumbling down the stairs. Keeping her in prayer.

Donna said...

Oh Diana, I feel so bad for Sweet Bright Eyes, and her mama! I will say a prayer for sure. Hope she's doing better. When it rains, it pours, right?

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

oh that's so sad, hugging the screen. I think I see a move in your future.

20 North Ora said...

So sorry!! Add that on to all of the confusion of a move and I bet her Mom and Dad are about at their wit's end. Praying for precious baby.

I'm praying that all is well and that if it is a break, that she will heal up fast Diana. Isn't it so hard be far away? I wish all my kids where nearby, but I guess they are the 'boss of me' now :))))

Shelia said...

Oh, no! Poor Little Bright Eyes! I will be praying for that little darling! It'll probably be harder on her mommy and Mimi as will will on her.
Be a sweetie,

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

I'm so sorry to hear your little darling bright eyes has broken her leg, Diana. I will keep her in my prayers. ♥

LV said...

The old saying, when it rains it pours. Definitely moving is not an easy thing, but have this to happen is horrible. Trust the report is not as bad they think. Being so young, she will heal quickly and deal with it easier than us old folks. Be strong for her and family.

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Oh poor little darling. Just what they don't need to worry about now. I hope she's better quickly. Poor grandma too can't be there to hug and help :-(

NanaNor's said...

Hi there, Poor baby!!! Thankful on little ones, their bones heal quickly and easily. I know it must be so hard not being there.
Sending hugs your way.

Renee said...

Oh, no. Poor baby. I hope they get some answers.

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

Good heavens, Diana - that poor little thing (and her parents)! Thankfully it is something can be fixed, but I am sure this has been so stressful on all, especially being new in town. Prayers for fast healing! Jane

Patricia @ CorninmyCoffee-pot said...

Oh! I hate that. Poor little miss bright eyes!
I'm sorry to hear that- and I'm mad as heck it took two trips to the ER to find there actsully was a problem! When are these hospitals going to wise up?! This is the 4th case THIS WEEK. I kid you not, where the hospital failed to diagnose , treat and in the end released. ( one case the man died 39 yrs old) it is ridiculous!
... I'm sorry your not there to give hugs! 😢

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Oh, no! Sure hope it's not broken. I think you could use a hug, too, Diana! xoxo

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Oh no! I sure hope nothing is broken! Nothing worse than your little one hurting. Prayers being said for them right now! Let us know how she is, ok?
Big hugs!

Missy George said...

What's with the "may have"!can't anyone in that town read an x-ray?My heart goes out to both of them. U2!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Oh my...prayers to out for your sweet Bright Eyes for a quick recovery...how awful that she had to endure this ordeal with the first misdiagnosis!...

Shirley said...

Diana, Prayers and hugs to Miss Bright Eyes and mama, You post brought back memories of my oldest tumbling down our basement steps. We were lucky that he didn't go off the side of them. Needless to say we enclosed them right away. I pray that she doesn't have to wear a cast for 6 tp 8 weeks. I know how it hurts when they are where grandma's live away from them. We all want to be there to help them. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Ronda@islandmother said...

I'm sorry Diana to hear of her fall and how frusterating for you to be so far away. I will pray for all of you

Annesphamily said...

Prayers for this cutie and her mama too. Scary times when little ones are hurt. I will pray and appreciate your kind heart Diana. Take care Hugs, Anne

Kelly said...

Oh I just hate to hear this news! I bet there were some big tears and cries after that happened. I hope she's not in pain and will have a speedy recovery. I know that children's bones heal quicker than ours. My youngest broke his leg when he was 2 on our trampoline. He wore a cast but healed up quickly and never had another problem. His was a VERY bad break too! She is young and probably won't ever remember this accident too.

Rose L said...

Once I fractured my foot in 5 places but a normal xray did not show it. I had to have a special nuclear xray done to have it show! I had walked on it a month in such pain!

Rose L said...

Oh, and I hope adorable bright eyes will be okay!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I hope and pray she is okay...will be praying for her Diana! Let us know!

Katie Mansfield said...

Oh no! Poor baby. Praying all is okay.

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

Oh Diana I am so sorry to hear that! We've moved three times and I know how crazy it can be doing it with small children. She looks like an angel. I feel for her mom. truly I do. I've added her to my prayer list!
xoKathleen

Terra said...

Oh how upsetting. Maybe she will not have to wear the cast; she is a darling I can see.

Gayla said...

A big hug to you all. How very stressful on top of stress! Long distance is tough. Hope tomorrow is bright.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Oh, Diana, the move was probably exciting for her and then this had to happen. I hope she will be feeling better soon, but it will be hard for a little thing like that to have a cast on. I will certainly pray for her and hope her mama is doing OK too..Judy

cynthia lee designs said...

So sorry to hear this. Saying prayers for her, her mama, and for you.
hugs,

Adam said...

I hope she gets better

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Oh my goodness, I know how your heart is hurting with her, and wanting to be there to help! Will certainly be praying, and hoping for the best! And sending an extra prayer for the family that has moved, to have to find new doctors, and try to settle in as well. So tough! Will certainly be praying!

Anne's Attic - Design said...

I have kept her in my prayers, and I was hoping that she wouldn't have any breaks, but it's good that they found it. Your sweet daughter, I am sure is miserable about it. My youngest son had the same thing happen to his leg, after a few days of him limping and then not walking on it I took him in for a ex-ray and sure enough he had broken it. I felt like a terrible mother. He was 2. He healed just fine and was back to jumping and falling down the stairs again. Tell her to just take one moment at a time while she is going through such a crazy time in her life. Bless her heart. Take care sweetie and have a beautiful weekend. Hugs, Jo

Janet said...

Oh my, poor sweet girl :( Praying for her here. I think that they hospital should have done full body xrays. When my son got hit by a car and flew through air they just did trunk and head and neck. He ended up with two broken wrist and a busted toe we found a week later. His toe stopped growing then. He was 6 then.

When he was 2 he fell down some stairs and had to get stitches just above his right eye. Gosh that was so scary to go through.

Let us know how she is doing, okay?

Take care, Janet W.....PS I bought your book online. Loved it :)

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, poor little Bright Eyes! Sending prayers her way! Your poor daughter must be beside herself! Sending prayers for her, too, and hoping the rest of the move goes smoothly for her. So stressful. Thank goodness she got a second opinion. Mother's always know when something isn't right. xo Karen

Oh Diana, I'm so sorry to hear about BrightEyes taking a fall, poor sweet baby. I will say a prayer for her and her family. It can be quite overwhelming moving to a different area and everything that goes with it.

I do hope she gets better soon.
