My sweet Alexandra ended up in the hospital yesterday following a horrible swing set accident. Her surgery was close to an hour and her recovery will be lengthy. Seeing her in such discomfort is terrible. No child should have to go through this. Oh, how I wish I could take her place!

She is home and resting, though rather uncomfortable. I hope that her body will make a quick recovery and that she will be back to her energetic self again soon.

Poor Lorelai was equally traumatized by the incident. She was with Alexandra when it all happened at was petrified at the sight of blood. Lorelai huddled in the music parlor screaming as if she were the one injured. She kept saying how scared she was for her sister and how she didn't want to see the blood. Later in the evening when Lorelai was visiting Alexandra at the hospital she got shaky at the sight of the IV going into her sisters hand. I think it's safe to say that she isn't destined to be a doctor :)

We had many visitors come to the house today with gifts, cards, and treats for Alexandra. The phone rang all day with friends and family calling to voice their concern. Alexandra was in an emotional mood and was very touched by everyone's thoughtfulness. There were many times that she teared up and said how blessed she was to have so many people care about her.

What a dear little child.
