(Thursday 8/7) Well this day didn't turn out like we would have hoped. This was a down day that turned into a downer day.
The kids just hung out all day. Did some bike riding and playing with friends. In the evening, I had a meeting to go to. Nancy, Mark, and Sergey were riding bikes to the pool. But on the way, Nancy and Sergey collided and Nancy fell off her bike and got hurt. She has a broken wrist, a cut above her eye that required stitches, and is all banged up with bruises and scrapes.
A neighbor saw it happen and took Nancy and Sergey to the ER. We only live a couple of blocks from the hospital. Sergey stayed with Nancy keeping her company until I could get there. We stayed and watched the doctor and nurses tend to her, then we all went home at about 10:00 PM.
Mark had been riding ahead of them and didn't see it happen. The neighbor went down to the pool to tell him. He stayed at a friend's until we got home.
Nancy is doing OK, but she will need orthopedic surgery on Monday to repair the fracture.
