Not to inturrupt the vacation pictures, but we had an interesting day we thought we'd share...
This morning while playing in the hall Jence fell against a corner and put a gash in his forehead. He only cried for about three minutes as Al (who luckily had just come home from work to get some stuff ready for the move) and I soaked up the gush, then he was back to normal. We headed to the hospital, again- our fifth trip with him-
They debated but decided that gluing it shut would suffice. Al says he got pretty queasy watching them open shut open shut that nasty gash in his little guy's face, we decided it's different (harder to handle) when it's your kid that's hurt.
But he just laid there on Al's lap (with this look on his face). He was amazing. And of course Puppy was with us- fitting that a stuffed animal from Gramps would make so many hospital trips ("Oh my doctor and my nu-rse wheeled me down to surgery, put their masks on took their scissors, cut a big hole i-in me...")
Happy again with Mommy
Oh, wait- back again! We went home and put Jence down for a nap and when Al went to get him up a few hours later he said that it looked like a horror movie, the glue was all undone and his forehead was all gory again. So this time it was stitches.
They put anesthetic into his head and he didn't even flinch! It was crazy, the Dr told us to harden our hearts because it was going to be awful and he just took it, with one silent little tear slipping down his face and slowly eating a marshmallow.
