[child] the_child takes a little ride in the ambulance
the_child decided to take a header into a tree this afternoon while racing downhill on her bike. (Yes, she was wearing her helmet.) As this was in preference to meeting a car in the street before her, I can hardly fault her decision making powers. After a couple of hours in the ER, she's back out with a collection of x-rays of her neck and spine, and the urge to go buy a new helmet. It's all good, but it wasn't for a while.
I suspect she'll ache like crazy tomorrow, but she's happy, healthy and whole.
