Another fracture...

Today was a day we ought to have stayed in bed for. It began at half past six with a huge downpour of rain, and as I went out in the dark to cover the rabbit's cage, I hoped that the sport would be cancelled - but no. Finn's team played in howling rain and wind and eventually hail out in Porirua East, and they just about froze - and they lost as well! Meanwhile Asher's game was played in similar weather in the Hutt Valley, and he was taken out in a tackle early in the second half, went right over the boy who tackled him... and broke his collarbone. I spent the two hours in the AfterHours getting him seen by a doctor, xrayed and seen again. He's in a lot of pain. I feel so sad for him, his soccer season was just getting going and the team was doing so well. Now he's off for about six weeks. It also ruins our holiday road trip plans. He can't go on the luge now. Also, we have to be back Monday week for Fracture Clinic - I cried at the counter when the receptionist said that. I didn't want to have to come back early from up north. I just wanted a rest. She quietly handed me the tissue box as I signed the credit card slip.

Tonight things got better as we had two birthday parties to go to, luckily quite near one another, with masses of beer, wine and catered food flowing, and close friends at both parties! One 40th, one 50th, one with a band and a dance floor, and one with the best speeches I've heard in ages! We party hopped. But now it's nearly 2.30 in the morning and I have Mass tomorrow! OMG! It's also raining and COLD! I'm going to bed for a few hours' sleep! Good night, dear buddies.
