Well, I have had a lot of trials and "growing" experiences here in Switzerland, but I can say now I have checked one more off my list that I hope to not try again: a ride in the ambulance. I was running down the stairs to get the phone in the kitchen and when I hit the the bottom tile floor (that was newly mopped) I slipped and landed directly on my tailbone. When I tried to get back up, I couldn't put any pressure on my feet and had shooting pain up my back. I army crawled to the phone and called Kent to tell him I couldn't move. He immediately called the ambulance and told me to stay put. No problem.
When the ambulance workers came, luckily one of them spoke enough english for us to communicate. Also, another big blessing is that my new neighbor, Erin, is close enough now that she was able to come over and take Charlie and pick up the girls from school. The biggest blessing of ALL, is that nothing is broken. I just have a contusion on my tailbone. I will just be on my back for awhile until everything heals. Thanks to my family for all the prayers. I am sure that is why it turned out as good as it did.
Another exciting day in the Swiss Alps. At least I am hoping to heal quickly enough to still make this ski season worth it! And really, so grateful to my kind husband for documenting all these beautiful moments...
