    My daughter had a softball tournament today and in the last inning of the third game she broke her leg (both the fibula & tibia just above the ankle) :eek: sliding into home plate. I have never heard screams sooo loud before.

    My poor sweet baby.. :cry: Darn freak accident. Wish it were me!!

    She just started working with me last week and was doing great on the mower. I was looking forward to us being together a couple days a week :(

    Dang man, my whole leg hurts to think about it. From the fire fighter stand point I can tell you there is nothing that will cut me to the bone like a kid in pain, or sick and there aint NOTHING I can do about it. Adults are bad enough, but kids.................... The best thing we can do is get them to the hospital ASAP so they can get what ever they need to make them comfortable.

    Good luck, and best wishes. I too hope for a speedy recovery.

    Three kids of my own. When something happens to them it really tears you up.
    Hope she has a fast recovery.

    Thanks guys for your kind thoughts!

    She's doing pretty well. A trooper to say the least. She hardly ever complains about anything.. ever! :angel:

    I also forgot to mention that she was safe! Turned out to be the go ahead run and we held the lead for the win. They're gonna miss her today.. she's their clean-up hitter.

    Thanks again!
