The tree attacked my husband!!

As if there wasn't enough going on with us right now, a tree attacked my husband and fractured his shoulder blade. So now not only can I not pick Cam up, it is very difficult for Keith to as well.

What happened is this: We took Cameron to the park with some friends on Saturday because it was a gorgeous day and it sounded like a good idea. It is a very nice park with infant swings and all. Above the swingset is one of those giant trees. You know, the ones that look like they are 200 ft tall and have a million large branches? Well apparently there was a broken branch lodged high up in the tree and when the wind blew pretty hard, it knocked this branch loose. And it wasn't a tiny branch. Probably 2 feet long and 3-4 inches in diameter. Keith had just finished pushing Cam on the swing and they were walking back towards me, with Cam in front of Keith. The branch crashed down and nailed Keith directly on the shoulder. The branch broke into 3 pieces on impact, and my husband nearly passed out.

I am not happy that it hit my husband, but if it had to hit something, I am glad it hit what it did. Seriously, if it had been 2 inches to the right it would have fractured his skull. If it had fallen 2 inches to the left, it would have hit my son, and I don't want to even think of the result of that.


ANYWAYS.... Keith is still in pain, but it seems to be decreasing slightly, little by little.

I am 30 weeks pregnant today. I did the math, and if I deliver her at the same time I delivered Cam, I only have 35 days left!!! WOW! Thats seems so much shorter than 5 weeks...
