ER visit #1

Posted on June 2, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Well, amazingly we have never been to the ER with injuries with our kids. And we have 3 boys in our home! But tonight #4 was trying out some fancy steps with a cup on his Croc and bit the dust, splitting his lip. We debated over taking him because it was really questionable if he needed stitches or not. We made a call to one of the sis-in-laws who has had a lip injury at her house and after hearing the details she said to take him in. So 3 1/2 hours later we have arrived home with 3 “spikeys” on his lip. And you know what? He was the best 2 year old, almost three year old in the world! He did not utter one cry or complaint as they stitched him up! The nurse was awesome and so was the she doctor. I know that helped because he is a big momma’s boy and appreciated so many moms in the room! And after they had finished and were getting our papers, he reached up and pulled the first stitch right out! So, back they come and re-stitch his lip! The Dr. said she must have snipped the knot when she trimmed the final stitch. Fortunately, #1 and #2 kids are at Mimi & Papa’s house, so we only had two little guys hanging out in the ER tonight! I have some before stitches and after pics to post later. Obviously I have lots of work to do on this blog, so I will get some pictures when I can.

Nighty night
