Dukan Diet Days 7 & 8 – PP&PV – and a mom’s worse nightmare

Sticking to the diet, I have a scale that’s accessible and I’m down 7 pounds from when I left the States! I’d like to see a bit more, but I’ll take it!

Also getting walking in every single day and lots of water!

Just before walking out the door for church yesterday morning, my iPhone rings with a FaceTime call. It’s Tiffany!! My youngest (she’s 28, but still my baby!!). Horror registers on my face as I realize she is in a neck immobilizer on a back board!!! And we have a crappy signal and I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT SHE IS SAYING!!! Fear gripped my heart, we lost the connection! I called right back and Joey (her hubby) takes the phone outside of the ER to tell me my child had fallen 10 feet from the attic to the living room, tiled floor. They’ve just arrived at the ER by ambulance and they know nothing. I go to church. Praying upon all that is mighty that my baby is OK. Please don’t let her have a head injury, please let her be whole.

Lots of X-rays later, she has a shattered heel, no head injury (PTL!!) and is bruised on much of her body. She’s in a great deal of pain. In fact she just called me crying 😦

I set up a take them a meal page and my family and friends are doing what they can to be there for her… I am so grateful for the amazing people in my life. Please keep Tiffany in your thoughts and prayers. Here’s a couple pics, one is her foot and one is her back.

  1. So glad that she is okay! I bet that was so scary getting that phone call. My baby is only a year…but I can see how she will “always be my baby”! Hope for a speedy recovery for your little girl!

  2. Oh that would stop any mother’s heart, no matter how old they are! How frightening for all — she’s gonna be sore for a long time — prayers for all and congrats to you on the 7lbs !!

    Hugs from Michigan!
