Kasi's Bad Luck

My poor daughter, Kasandra, has bad luck at weddings. It started when she was about six months old, and we were at my dad's wedding. My sister was holding her, and playing horsie with her on her knee. My sister heard a pop, and Kasi started screaming. An hour later we were in the emergency room, learning that she has a dislocated elbow. Unfortunately, for the next two years, we many many trips to the ER, because it has a tendency to come out of joint frequently. The doctors were discussing surgery with us because it shouldn't have been happening so often. Luckily, but her second birthday, she had healed well enough to avoid surgery, and it hasn't happened since.

Kasi's bad luck continued at my sister's wedding. She was the flower girl, and so excited to be part of the ceremony. I think she was six at the time. About thirty minutes into the reception, she fell and split her forehead open. We spent the next three hours in the emergency room, leaving after they knocked her out and put six or seven stitches in her head.

In both instances, we missed the receptions. Thankfully, my dad and sister both saved me their wedding favors so I was able to have a keepsake from their special day. I am not looking forward to Kasi's wedding day. I think it's a bad sign if the bride spends her own reception in the emergency room.
