David and I were on the road for two reason, Rachel had here first every appointment at the Down Syndrome clinic at DUKE and the next day I had a wedding photo shoot. But during Rachel's DS appointment my husband thought it would be fun to play with Rachel on the doctors stool.
She was getting such a giggle from doing it, but I saw disaster written on the horizon. Sure enough Rachel changed her center of gravity on one of the SPINS of the stool and went flying off. Poor girl hit her face, the nurse wanted us to go up to the emergency room to have her face x-rayed to make sure she didn't break her cheek bone. But the doctor came in and examined her and said she was pretty sure it was just going to be a bad bruise. Sure enough the bruise showed up before we even left the clinic.
Here is our little black and blue girl playing in the hotel room later in the evening.
