Jenna had a high pain thresh hold for many years and didn’t seem whimpy at all. But now she seems to be the opposite – making mountains out of molehills (so to speak)
She took a spill quite recently and landed on her hand. In the process she may have sprained her wrist. She wore an ace bandage to school and says she wants a cast – but I don’t believe that her wrist is broken. But she says she is too weak and has a tough time with it. One specific example that she used was in getting dressed.
I reminded her about Katy Plumis who you can read about here and here. Jenna asked me to remind me about how Katy lost her arm. I told her that Katy had been thrown out of a car because she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Katy’s cousin was killed in that same accident.
Jenna then says to me that she’d rather lose her arm than her life. But then she said something profound that pleased me because of her mature thoughtfulness. She said she would die if it would prevent Anna (her cousin) from dying.
