The 7th wonder


Remember the seven wonders of Dneprorudny? We've been experiencing the seventh. It really has been wonderful, though! They were very fast and kind. Yesterday Raia fell, just off an office chair at home, but it was enough to break her arm. Our friend, Julie, is here visiting, so we left the other children with her, and both Will and I went with Raia to the hospital. That was especially good, because Will had to go off to find and buy cast supplies, but I got to stay with Raia. Without Julie, Raia might have had to be alone a little. She has a small fracture above her elbow. The doctor said that it was a bad place to break, but that she had a "lucky break," with everything staying in the right places. So, it should heal up just fine. Raia and Will are back at the hospital now; we should know more when they get back.

(Oh, last night, the person who came in after us was a very elderly babushka who had fallen out of an apricot tree and broken her arm! And like I said, they were really fast. They told us we would have to wait for an x-ray, but the ambulance went right out and got the x-ray lady for Raia.)

All three of my children have experienced broken arms, and Kelly's was just like Raia's! Praying for your sweet girl and her speedy recovery!

We are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Oh, Phyllis! I'm so sorry to hear this! Poor Raia! But, I am glad that it wasn't any worse and the circumstances were so that you and Will could both be with her at the hospital. Poor little thing! But, knowing Raia, she'll be up and about very soon! Love and hugs!

Ouch!! The only broken arm in Rigel family history was when Jesse fell from an office chair. We'll be praying! And Jesse says ice cream helps.

Poor girl! I am sure that it was a blessing to have considerate nurses and doctors and to have Julie there. Praying she recovers soon!
