Rylee, Devin, Kamryn and Jake came over with a card and some cookies for Mia. Unfortunately, Mia was already asleep when they came by.

On Monday afternoon, we got in with the orthopedist who confirmed the break and put Mia in her sweet hot pink cast. She only has to wear it for 3 weeks and her hand was left out of the cast so she can still write. The Immigration Group at Matt's law firm were so sweet and sent Mia a cookie boquet. She was so excited to get it and so were the other kids when they got home from school and started eating the cookies.

Mia was eager to go to school the next day so that her friends could sign her cast, but Mia came down with the flu that the rest of us had and stayed home from school for the next 2 days.
I was supposed to be running the Boston Marathon last weekend, but the race had already filled up when I tried to register a month before the deadline. Then I decided to run the SLC marathon, which was also last weekend, but when I started having hamstring problems, I decided not to run it. I am so glad I didn't run either of them. I would have felt so bad if I had been in Boston or Salt Lake when Mia broke her arm. Also, I ended up getting the worst flu/cold thing that I've had in a long time. There is no possible way I could have run either of the marathons feeling like that. I figure everything worked out for the best. I'll find another marathon to run soon. I'm so glad I was there for Mia. She really needed her mom when she broke her arm.
