Tori is FIVE!!!

Hard to believe it but my baby turned FIVE yesterday!!

She had a MOSTLY wonderful day and was on cloud nine from the moment she woke up. She got a pretty bracelet from Brooke, then Daddy rang her from Wollongong, she then got to open her presents from us and Ash.

Da rang her and then it was off to Preschool (where she had her first cake)

She had a pleasant surprise when she got home from school and found these balloons waiting for her...

She is LOVING Ash at the moment as he made all her cakes today. These were two yummy mudcakes he made, a big one for all the family and a little one just for Tori... she is also looking forward to having a cake at Playgroup tomorrow and Daddy bringing an icecream cake home with him on Friday!!!

Nan also rang for her birthday and she is OVER THE MOON that Grandma and Nan n Pop Christiansen sent her money and keeps checking it's still in her

Onto the only sad part of the day, just after she had her cake, she went into the bathroom to wash her face and slipped and hit her head on the edge of the bath...I think she had the HUGEST egg I have ever felt on the back of her head and it was a sad end to a fab day. The good news is that today she still has a bump on her head but nowhere near as scary and the first thing she said when she woke up is... "I'm still 5"!!!!!

Brooke's Broke

Well 3 of her toes

Saturday night she was mucking around with Tori and kicked the door...after seeing they were bleeding and sitting at a funny angle I rushed her off to the Drs and none were open so with dread we headed up to the emergency ward. We arrived about 6.30pm and when the nurse saw her foot she thought she thought maybe there was a dislocation and we were added to the "fasttrack" pile. 8.30 she got x-rayed, about 11.30 I was told there was still 6 people in front of her, at 12 we were told most of the Drs go home, at about 3.30 we were taken in to be looked at and she was finally put in a temporary cast at 4.30am!!!

Apparently after 12 there is no fastrack and we went into a pile of 40 instead of 6...but there were people waiting 6, 7 or 8 hours just to be xrayed. There was a 3 year old girl vomiting blood who was told 10 hours..thankfully it wasn't that long, people started giving up and going home around 1 or 2..when we got in we were told there was a guy who got hit by a train and just the bone dr alone spent 6 hours working on him and thats why they were so far maybe we were "lucky" it was ONLY 10 hours!!!

Anyway, yesterday we took her to the local doctor to get her full cast on. The first one had no support around the toes and the nurse had the nerve to get the s***s when I pointed out..her toes are broken, they need support...DUH!!! so off that one came and she put another one on. We were home for about an hour and noticed a crack around her ankle, rang the Dr and she said to come in tomorrow. Apparently, she wants us to complain to the Director so the nurse can get fired..but Brooke doesn't want that to happen!! Long story short, I have to go there today so I can get the referral letter from the hospital and Im going to take her to yet another Drs to get yet another cast!!!! as it has to be on 6-8 weeks and I don't think this one will last that long (it has cracked all the way around and the two halves move seperately!!)

Anyway, enough complaining..Brooke had 2 days off and wanted to go to school today..they have exams soon and she doesn't want to miss anything important..
