The Accident

As you all know on November 11th Violett got her little foot caught in the dog chair. It was scary and traumatic, but I think more for us than for her to be truthful. I'm not going to post the pictures here of her foot and of the spring and the chair, but I'll tell a shortened version of the story.
She was playing in the chair with an older kid, L. Her foot slid down into the chair and we couldn't get it out. After ripping the chair apart, using industrial wire cutters we finally saw that a metal wire had gone through the top of her foot and had come out between the last two toes. We took an ambulance to the hospital where they removed it in a flash. She barely cried and was bandaged up and we were sent home. She had a nap and has been running around on it since. She's such a trooper and we are very proud to have her as our daughter. It's healed really well and we no longer have to worry about infections or band aids.

I can't quite remember which day it arrived, but we woke up to a knock on the door and I was handed a bag from Shaw Cable. Inside was a teddy bear, some lollipops, a balloon and a card. It had been sent from Scott's manager and co-workers. I am so glad I told him to get a better job! The people at Shaw are truly awesome for sending this to our little girl. It's a company that really cares about it's employees. Thanks, Shawn, for sending Violett the bear.
