Broken Radius


I was in a car accident yesterday on my way to be fingerprinted for the third time and the radius in my arm is broken. It's my right arm (of course), so I am reduced to hunting and pecking on my keyboard. My arm is in a splint up past my elbow and will be casted next Thursday.
We called immigration to see if we could re-schedule but the woman said she did not know. So, after I was released from ER. Tim and I went to be fingerprinted. I was a sight let me tell you...big run in my black hose, arm in a sling. airbag burns up my other arm. I wasn't in much pain though. I can't write left handed, so one of the women filled out my forms for me. I had to get on my knees for the prints of my right hand....but we got it done.
I tell you..who breaks their arm at forty??? I'm thinking I'll get the hot pink cast and see if my creative friend Kim Kenward can hot glue some rhinestones on it :)
I hope I get the cast off before I go to China!

Kimberley! Oh no, ouch!!! I hope all feels better very soon.

Before we went to China I was very sick. But in China I was so AMAZINGLY thrilled beyond any words I have ever found, I felt like I was in heaven. Truly! God just shone on us.

He is shining on you already. I see it in those red Mary Jane shoes of your daughter's. And perhaps the rhinestones on your arm :)....

Ooooooh!!!! You poor thing!! I hope you're not in too much pain.
I can't believe they couldn't reschedule your FPs...but at least it's done now.

Get that hot pink cast! And start taking lots of calcium! ;)

Feel better!!! Hope it heals super quickly!

Oh no! Oh Kimberly, what next!?

Just be glad it happened AFTER you needed to be with your Grandma and BEFORE you have Sophia home!

You amaze me. I know what contortions it takes to get good prints. You are a strong woman!

Will pray for healing.

Hope the auction is going well. If I win anything between now and the 21st but don't respond, it'll be because I'm in Honduras w/o internet, not because I'm shirking my payment!

k1 said...

Oh, I had the hot pink cast on my ankle years ago. I'd go for the dark purple this time if I had to choose again.

But yes, bling it up!

Don and Be said...

Thanking God you're OK .....

Daniella said...

oh no! What a day you had. I know your crazy busy but I'm going to be sending you an email if you have a minute.

Shay Ankerich said...

I am praying you feel better and get that cast off quickly. Bless you today!!!

Gail said...

Oh Kimberley....just happy you are okay. Hope it heals well and you get some bling on that cast. :)

Noemi said...

Oh no! I am so sorry! I am glad that you are OK!

I would totally be-dazzle the cast! LOL

3D said...

That is awful!

I am glad that you are okay besides the break.

Keep smilin!

Kim K. said...

You poor thing. The timing stinks (not that an accident ever has good timing). I was serious about carrying all your shower loot to your car. I'd be happy to bring some jewels and a glue gun to the shower to jazz up your cast (hee hee).

Will you need to use a sling? If so, I might be able to whip together some fun for a sling. Love ya!!

Somewhere In The Sun said...

I'm so glad it wasn't worse! I know the timing seems lousy though. I'll be praying for a quick healing!

Nothing like making lemonade out of lemons or in your case, bling out of a cast! I am glad you are ok.

Holly said...

Wow. I am so thankful you were not more badly injured.
I know you are not allowed to take pictures inside the building where you get fingerprinted, but that sure is part of your story in your journey to Sophia!!
The things we do for love.
I just have one question really...
WHY do we have to get RE-fingerprinted? Our fingerprints have NOT changed. Why can't they just run them again to make sure we haven't committed any crimes since the last check?
Hello?
Anybody???

Michelle said...

Oh no! I am so sorry! I'm so glad you weren't more seriously injured. I hope you heal quickly and feel better soon.

Marla said...

Oh you poor thing!! I can't believe you were able to get the prints done with a broken arm, you must be super woman!!

LOL @ the pink cast, I am definitely going to want to see some pics of that. :)

Take care, hun, and big hugs to you!

Amy said...

Poor you! I'm so glad it wasn't worse! Is there ever a dull moment in the life that is yours, Kimberley? :)

Praying for a speedy recovery!

Jewels of My Heart said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am so sorry! Big hug to you! I am so thankful you were not seriously hurt. Sounds very scary. What a trooper you are baby!
Yes, this is just another shining example of why I have dubbed The March of the Penguins as the official adoption saga! There is nothing we Mommy's won't do to get our babies safely home!
I will lift you up in prayer.
Love your sense of adventure, and style with the hot pink and rhinestones.
Heal fast friend.

Debz said...

Oh No! Thankfully your ok!
I hope it heals fast!

Love to see a picture of your blinged up cast! Love your optomism.

Nancy said...

OMW...that's terrible. I hope you are able to get the cast removed before China, but fear you will need a brace of some sort over there.
Here's hoping your bones heal quickly.

Rachael said...

What we won't do to bring our kids home...

Glad you weren't more seriously injured!

Truly Blessed! said...

Ooh... I have a Fancy Nancy idea -- how About some feathers with those rhinestones? Ooh la la! Kidding, of course, so glad you weren't seriously hurt!!

Don and Lisa Osborn said...

First, I am sorry about your arm. You poor thing. It seems like whenever I come to visit after a long hiatus something bad has happened. I pray you'll heal VERY quickly.

I just found out you received your referral. That is so exciting!!! Congratulations. I hope it won't be long before your darling girl is in your HEALED arms.

Calcium and vitamin D!!!

Kelly and Todd said...

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that you were in a car accident and have a broken arm. I'm sending "healing thoughts" your way for a speedy recovery. A hot pink cast sounds like the way to go - all decked out in pretty rhinestones - it will be fabulous!

Feel better soon -- kelly :-)

a Tonggu Momma said...

Kimberley ~ Oh, I am so, so sorry! That sounds simply terrible. The Tongginator commends you on your choice of cast color, however. Feel better soon!!!!

Monica said...

Oh, Kimberly, bless your heart! I've got to admire you spirit, though...hot-glued rhinestones, I can only imagine!!!

Keisha said...

Oh...bless your heart!! Poor thing. I'm glad other than that .. that you are okay.
Praying for a speedy recovery!!
Hugs!
Keisha

Waiting for Mia Hope! said...

Oh Kimberley, you poor thing! Darn them fingerprints!!! I hope your arm heals quickly...you have a baby girl waiting for hugs from her mommy...although I'm sure the cast will not get in the way of such a treat! :)

Can I sign your cast? heehee

Love and Hugs!
Robin

Alyson and Ford said...

So sorry that your arm is broken; hopefully you will be pain-free. Typing must be hard, but I bet it is not slowing you down much!
You must have been a sight to see getting fingerprinted.
Take care of yourself. Hope your recovery is swift and short!

Alyzabeth's Mommy

Jonni said...

Oh honey, who knew renewing your China paperwork could be hazardous to your health?

Hope you feel better soon and I can't wait to see the pink cast with rhinestones. Hope it heals before China.

Hugs,
Jonni

That is Terrible! Somehow I had to giggle though - a very committed mama to be fingerprinted on her knees!

Thanks, also for your donation for ChuHao - greatly appreciated!
