I've been saying all week to Kevin that our first ER visit for stitches was right around the corner. Last week Anderson hit his head on the corner of the train table causing a goose egg and giant bruise. On Sunday Jake fell at Grandma's house and cut his cheek pretty bad so I knew it was just inevitable. There have been too many close calls and the odds were against us.
Today it finally happened. Anderson stepped on some train track that was on the floor and it lunged him forward right into the edge of the wall. Blood was everywhere, spilling down his face and pooling in his ear. We got him calmed down, bleeding stopped and bandaid applied but I still had an uneasy feeling. After a few hours it was clear that the gash was too wide to close on its own so we took him to the ER. They cleaned it up and glued his little forehead back together.
