Close call!

Well, we had our first "almost" injury yesterday. I didn't like the way it went down either. I sat down for lunch yesterday at work, and checked my cellphone. I was surprised to see that I had missed four calls. One of them was a message from Ang saying Rich call me as soon as you get this message. My heart skipped a beat. Usually when I get a message like this at work, it's because someone close has passed away. Anyway, I tried to call her and all I got was her message service. So I called my parents, because Ang was supposed to be dropping Malaia off at lunchtime for them to babysit. My dad answered and told me that Ang wasn't there because she had taken Malaia to the hospital. She had fallen from the bathroom vanity where we try not let her climb and was favouring her arm and hand.
When I finally talked to Ang she said that Malaia cried for sometime after she fell. But then went back to normal, playing and laughing as usual. She tripped though in the kitchen not long after and used her hands to break her fall and she started favouring her hand and arm again. Ang decided to go get x-rays. Anyway long story short, after 1 1/2 hours of waiting at the hospital with Malaia climbing all over everything there, she decided to bring her home and just monitor the situation.
She seems fine and dandy now. I know this definitely won't be the last time we end up at the hospital or clinic, but it sure does put a wrinkle in your day.
