Gold Medal Glory

Tabitha with her gold medal in Math. She came in first in grade four math enrichment. YAY TABS!

A horrible night last night--no sleep. Events started to unfold at about 2 in the afternoon Saturday. I was in my bedroom when I heard a very loud bang/thunk in the living room. I held my breath and listened. Silence--good I thought, perhaps it was the dog or someone dropping a big book. But then... SCREAMING and crying--Pip. I ran to the living room to find Pip clutching her forehead and a huge blue bump forming underneath her hand. She could not remember how she fell or what she hit her head on ( I wondered if it was because she was jumping from furniture to furniture again--something I had forbid her to do after nearly breaking her leg and spleen on other occasions). After about 5 minutes she insisted she play outside with the neighbors and her sisters. I let her go instructing her sisters to bring her inside if she acted hurt or odd. Sure enough, they brought her back in right away, she was crying and saying, "When it stop hurting?" over and over again.  I invented a great ice pack device (elastic headband holding a frozen slushy wedge on her bump--a mango icy treat from the health food store)and sat her in front of a Scooby- Doo video and gave her Motrin. After about 1/2 hour she seemed fine so we left it at that. That night she and Tabs wanted a sleep over on a mattress in the family room. At 2 am they came upstairs--Pip confused and crying that her neck hurt. Then she vomited. I had gotten up so fast I felt like I was going to faint. I had to lie down while Peter helped her into bed. I got on the internet and Peter called the BC nurse line. Of course, they wanted us to take her into emergency. I read on line that if she didn't continue vomiting and seemed coherent, she should be fine. We brought her in bed with us for the night.
And watch over her I did. I got no sleep.
 By morning she seemed fine, just a sore tummy. Head injuries are such a horrible worry! And Pippi is a dare devil--no fear, always jumping off of everything. She is always cracking herself hard.

Mist and Tabs performed very well on Friday night at their piano final concert. I am so impressed with how far they've come. Mist then went to a sleep over party at a friends house.
Peter and I attended a UBC party Saturday night--didn't stay late.
Tabs had soccer on Saturday and dance rehearsal today--nearly forgot until a phone call from an angry teacher wondering how fast I could get her down to the studio.
An absolutely beautiful summer day, the forest smelling heavenly of vanilla scented ponderosa and choke cherry blossoms.
The weeks are full over appointments. No time to work, but work I must, somehow?

Tell Pip Auntie needs her to be a calm girl - no dare devil antics when she visits auntie. I would be still lying there after leaping out of bed. It is hard to come back from heart stoppage.

Yes, those times when you know you're going to faint and vomit from blood pressure plunges are so horrid. I did recoop right away though. To jump out of bed instantly and to be greeted by a possible serious emergency is too much for little old me.
