The Week Of Surprises

One week in July was my best week, well was supposed to be the best week. I was 7 years old and still curious about the world, but on on July 5th when my mom walked into my room and yelled, “ Let's go! Time for your week with grandma.” I really didn't want to get up but I had to. I got up very slowly, moped around the house until it was time to get into the car to head up to Botkins.

Grandma took me to the zoo! It was such a long, dreadful, boring 2 hour drive, but it was worth it. We got to the zoo and I made my grandma take me straight to the elephants. They were so cute.

I had to have so much done to my arm, I was back to the hospital every single week. They put a metal plate in my elbow because they couldn't recover the broken bones. Still to this day 6 years later I have that metal plate in my elbow and still no feeling in it. The worst part was last summer when I shattered many bones in my forearm in that same arm I broke my elbow. I had many issues caused by the metal plate, although it is all good now. I am still the same girl, but with many very fragile bones in my left
