Dad works fast. So does the cat.

Elayna - Oct08
Dad sent Elayna flowers, a balloon, and a teddy bear.

Elayna's cat has already gnawed the balloon off of the vase.

Elayna is putting eight staples in the teddy bear's head.

This is my family.

EDIT: The influx of calls and visits from overwrought teenage girls has begun. One friend brought her a huge card signed by the entire IDS club. <3

Oh, Shira. I'm SO GLAD she's safe and full of piss and vinegar and charm... And SAFE! Holy hell. Gods, you know, of all the people I want to hug today, you're at the top of my list.

full of piss and vinegar and charm

Always and without fail. That's my girl.

Jeez. Phew. Right back atcha.

And if any spell of mine or solemn prayer ever worked to keep a person safe, if such things truly can cast radiant and invisible protection around our beloveds, if any of this truly exists outside of our imaginations, then your daughter and your family falls under my aegis, such as it is.

She rules. Made of win and awesome.

I have never had the pleasure of meeting Elayna, and I look forward to it. :D Because all reports : badass.
6th-Oct-2009 06:22 pm (UTC)
(I think she found the bear-stapling very cathartic, btw.)
6th-Oct-2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
I lolled. :)

I'm glad she's doing okay, and hope you feel less shaky soon too.
6th-Oct-2009 06:31 pm (UTC)
Just for a second I thought you were going to say she was putting staples into the cat.

Take care of each other.

Will the staples be removed when Elayna's are or remain as the "battle scar" on the Teddy?

Speaking of which, did the Hospital doc mention if there'd be a scar? I ended up with a 2inch forhead to eyebrow scar from a head to concrete wound that was stapled. I was assurred would leave no scar.

The stapled area is covered by hair... if it scars, the scar will be invisible.

If she is worried about scarring, Vitamin E cream does marvels. If you don't have any, I will mail you all some. We of the scrap-metal gathering persuasion know from scars, we do. Let me know if you need.
6th-Oct-2009 06:41 pm (UTC) - Re: scar bear affair . . .
As long as she keeps her hair, you mean. You never know when they're going to get a burr and buzz it all off.
6th-Oct-2009 06:43 pm (UTC) - Re: scar bear affair . . .
I told her that if she ever shaves her head, she should totally get a tattoo that incorporates the scar.
6th-Oct-2009 07:02 pm (UTC) - Re: scar bear affair . . .
That would be totally awesome, yes.
6th-Oct-2009 09:01 pm (UTC) - Re: scar bear affair . . .
How upset was she when she found out that any possible scar would not be shaped like a lightning bolt on her forehead?

6th-Oct-2009 06:35 pm (UTC)
Okay. I have the image of your daughter putting staples in the teddy bear's head and it's so cute.
6th-Oct-2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
You have an awesome family.
6th-Oct-2009 06:38 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad she's okay.
6th-Oct-2009 06:48 pm (UTC)
I love that she's stapling the teddy bear's head. And I'm so glad she's okay!
6th-Oct-2009 06:54 pm (UTC)
Lol, lynx told me about the conversation where he suggested the bear should get staples. I am amused that she followed through so quickly. :)
6th-Oct-2009 06:56 pm (UTC)
Hey, it was a great idea! She set upon that bear with bloodthirsty zeal. Very cathartic.
6th-Oct-2009 06:56 pm (UTC)
Yup, she's gonna be juuuust fine. :)
6th-Oct-2009 07:06 pm (UTC)
And this was the post that made me cry.

You and yours are awesome and I am so so so glad she is ok.
(Are you ok now?)
6th-Oct-2009 07:29 pm (UTC)
probably not the best place and time for this, but I highly approve of your Icon.
6th-Oct-2009 07:30 pm (UTC)
Is ok. The approval is mutual. :)

I am very glad to hear that Elayna's okay. the Pope told me about this and I got on to send my hopes and prayers for swift recovery. I'd light a candle at my altar, but my altar is in it's box until I finish moving.
6th-Oct-2009 07:33 pm (UTC)
She is not a pod person. SO happy I got to talk to her for a little bit so that I knew she was ok.

How are *you* holding up?
6th-Oct-2009 07:44 pm (UTC)
*whimpers* *curls up in little ball*

I'm hangin' in. I got to have my freakout when Adam took her to the optometrist.
6th-Oct-2009 08:13 pm (UTC)
Hot bath, warm PJs and load up on the painkillers. Adrenaline come down sucks.
6th-Oct-2009 11:21 pm (UTC)
Can you please adopt me as, like, your cousin or something?

Your family sounds so fun.

damidnara brought her not-quite-two-year-old S. over to my house, where S. promptly fell down the stairs in sight of her mother (and mine!).

Everybody felt bad about it. But I tell this story because S. figured out how to get over it PDQ: she took the teddy bear she'd spotted on the dresser in my room, and she went to the top of the stairs. "Uh-oh!" she said, and flung the teddy-bear down the stairs.

Bears are great for thiat sort of thing.

I am so glad there was so little damage. Thank god it wasn't worse. I'm sorry it happened at all.

Only just heard this news. (Been offline all day.) Am glad she's ok, as it is.

Relieved to know Elayna and the rest of you are going to be OK.

I knew Alicia was going to be OK after she'd been hit by a car (similar circumstances, too, come to think of it) when she ranted "My EMT wasn't even cute!" We decided there should be an ambulance service where the EMTs would be hotties of the "whoever you find hot" variety. Be rescued by hotness! And I was once again reminded why I fell for her in the first place.
