Urgent Care

A new urgent care facility just opened up in our area. Being the good citizens that we are, we decided that we needed to work harder to help keep it busy.
Last week we got to visit two times!

Our kids were practicing their back flips on the trampoline and one of them landed wrong and suddenly couldn't feel her back. We brought her inside and laid her down and then my husband gave her a priesthood blessing and then we took her to the urgent care facility. There they took X-rays and finally determined that she would be all right as long as she took it easy for the rest of the day.

A few short days later our other daughter was at gymnastics and was racing someone to some extra time on the trampoline. As she got there she landed on her foot wrong and couldn't walk for the rest of the evening. We compressed it, but found that there was no swelling so it couldn't be her ankle. Because of her pain, we took her to the urgent care facility and she too got X-rays. Luckily, her foot wasn't broken and before we ended up leaving, she was able to start putting weight on her foot.

Thrilling I know... we just can't seem to stay away from those doctors this year!

Ugh. Glad everyone is okay. That is scary. Keith once did something similar. He fell and hurt his foot. Wouldn't walk on it for a while. I took him to the doctor and though he wouldn't walk on it all day, as soon as we got to the doctor's office he acted fine. Silly kids.

It's so good of you to support local businesses. Thank goodness for insurance.
