Big Big Ouch!

I guess I can say I have been pretty lucky so far. I have two very active children who are either running up and down the stairs, jumping on their beds or jumping from the couch to all the cushions. Well finally today my luck ran out. Just as Andrew was climbing into his booster seat for breakfast he slipped and fell knocking his head on the table as he went. Well I thought this was just another bonk on the head until I picked him up and blood gushed all over his face. He had a slice right at the corner of his eye. I gave Zac a 911 page and then rushed him and Anne to the hospital.
Now let me just say this was probably the first time I have been truely grateful that Zac is a doctor. He met me at the front of the hospital and took him right in to the peds clinic. By the time Anne and I found a parking spot and trudged up the hill and into the hospital Zac and Dr. Jim had already put a nice little bandage on Andrew's eye. Zac said I was lucky to have missed it. So there you have it...never think your kids are amune from being hurt. Don't worry Andrew is fine. Before we got home he was singing and laughing in the car...what a kid!

I can't believe that Andrew is drawing elephants at age 2! Most boys just scribble until kindergarten! Earlier this year, Klare fell off a chair and bit through her bottom lip!(sooo yucky!) It seems the second child is always a little bit more of a dare devil, but you and I wouldn't know anything about that! ;)

Well, three of my four kids got stiches this summer, but they lived to tell about it. They haven't tried to be more careful after it either! Kids will be kids. It must be nice to have Zack there to get you right in. My husband is a 3rd year med student and doesn't have such pull in the hospital, but every little bit helps!

Eeek! That is sooo scarey! I have a VERY active little boy myself, so I'm always worried that something like that will happen! Glad to hear that he's okay though!
