Last Thursday Mary was on her way downstairs to answer the door bell when she slipped from the top step and fell all the way down the stairs. Even worse, she had just gotten Andy up from a nap and was holding him. Fortunately Mary's protective instinct kicked in and she cradled Andy as they fell. Andy was a little shaken up but walked away unharmed. Mary, on the other hand, ended up with a broken right arm and several very deep bruises on her legs. She saw the orthopedic surgeon yesterday and now has a cast from her hand up past her elbow. She is still in some pain, but coping very well. The doctor says she will be in the full cast at least 3 weeks and then they will transfer to a smaller cast just on her forearm for another few weeks. As bad as this was, we just thank God that it was nothing more serious than a broken arm and that Andy was not hurt.
