Good Morning ER
The alarm went off at 6AM. Â I stumbled into the bathroom to put on my work clothes and head out to clean the pool. Â I could hear my 2 year old open and close my bedroom door. Â Then I heard him trip and fall and cry. Â With my wife and baby still sleeping I rushed out and scooped him up to snuggle him back to sleep in my bed (besides, he was up too early). Â Then I felt the blood. Â IÂ holleredÂ to my wife, “HEAD WOUND!” Â and rushed back to the bathroom.I grabbed a clean washcloth (heh a WHITE one) and started to apply direct pressure. Â We got a little ice on it but it looked pretty bad. Â We went downstairs to comfort him by watching the Spectacular Spider-Man while we found a butterfly bandaid to pull the wound back together.
Everything seemed to be going fine, but when I dropped off some of the kids for school I noticed the bandaid was slipping.We stopped off at a friend’s house (THANKS WENDY) and put on some sterile strip tape to seal things up. Â We decided that it might be to large of a wound to just tape. Â It turns out that our pediatrician doesn’t do stitches so we went to the ER.We got there and there was NO ONE WAITING! Â I was thrilled. Â So here we are getting ready to go see the doctor. Â Note the Spider-Man Bandaid right in the middle of his head is just a comfort bandaid. Â 😀
We had our vitals checked and then watched Curious George.
and now we’re all better! Â Right now he’s sitting with me in my office watching the Clone Wars Cartoons on my iPod while I type. Â I’ve got a feeling this boy is going to be spoiled a little bit for the next few days.by
