Not Starting the Weekend So Well

The little boys are finally over being sick. We were having a pretty good morning until Drew ran into the door knob in the hallway and split his head open. I heard him hit and he ran to me holding his head. I scooped him up not knowing how bad it was until I felt wetness running down my neck. It was not pretty.

I called my Pediatrician and they told me to take him to the Pediatric clinic that was near my house. I got Brodie loaded up to go to my Dad and step Moms and called Will to meet me there at the clinic. Once we got there they said it was way too deep and we needed to go to the ER. So, we headed there and 11 stitches and a hole lot of screaming later this is how he looks.
Remarkably it looks really great. You could actually see his bone, that is how deep the cut was. Sorry if that is too much detail for some of you! They ended up putting 2 stitches on the inside and 9 on the outside. Even after some Versed and Tylenol with Codeine he still put up quite a fight which resulted in Will and a Paramedic holding him down. All 3 of them were covered in sweat by the time the whole ordeal was done. Drew fought so much he broke some capillaries in his face and neck. I tried to warn them he was strong.

We go back next Wed. to have the stitches taken out. That should be another traumatic day. This wasn't a very good start to our weekend.
