How was your Friday night? Mine well, I spent mine in the ER with Alanna getting 4 stitches in her HEAD. My kids plus the neighborhood kids were playing in my yard last night and one of them picked Alanna up and then lost their grip, and she fell on top of the METAL water meter outside.
She had a hole, not a cut, not a gash, a hole in her head. Our 8 minute drive to the hospital felt like an hour, and the 10 minute wait to get stitched up felt like 2 hours. At one point at only 2 minutes of waiting, I thought about screaming at all the people behind the desk to help my baby, but she was in good spirits and handled all her crying during the 8 minute ride to the hospital.
Well she did continue when they decided to stitch her up BEFORE she was numb from the shot they gave her. But she soon calmed down when I was able to cuddle her and bribe her with a year supply of ice cream when we got home.
We had to wake her through the night, but this morning she seems to be okay. She cries with threats of a bath to wash the blood out of her hair, but other than that she is my feisty, curious, lovable little girl as usual. As the GREAT mom and true blogger that I am, I asked Alanna if I could take a picture of her head, but she politely said no while tears ran down her face while waiting to be discharged, so for now, TRUST me you are happy she said NO.
Happy 4th of July
