Luke's E.R. Trip

Sunday morning we were almost completely ready for church when Riley and Luke were pushing each other around in the curtains that hang in front of our Laundry closet. Well, Luke lost his balance and fell backwards against the sharp corner of the wall. I picked him up and held him while he cried like I do eighty times a day, not thinking anything was new. Then Trevor came by and asked me why I had blood all over in my hair. Then I looked down and it was on my hands. Then I made Trevor look at the back of Luke's head (since everyone who knows me, knows I am not good with blood--I'm so glad Trevor was there). The next thing I know we're in the E.R. The funny thing is when we were waiting, Trevor took this pic and Luke looked up and said "Cheese" just like normal. Anyway, the Doctor had to put a staple in his head. Instead of going through 4 shots of anesthesia, we opted for the just get it over with option that the Doctor said was best. He snuck up behind Luke while I was holding him and put the staple in. They wanted to do two, but said one looks like it will hold it. Luke screamed and then pointed at the doctor and said "He hit me! He hit me!" It was sad, the poor little guy. Later the same day, he fell flat on the back of his head running across the kitchen floor and made it bleed all over again. So I made him a turbin of gauze to wear for the rest of the day. Now I am just holding my breath for 9 more days until we get to take it out!

Oh that sucks! Glad everything is ok. "He hit me! he hit me!" I couldn't help but laugh at that.

What a sad little day for Luky. I had to laugh at the gauze you wrapped around his head. It looks so cute on him.

Poor little guy. Things like that can happen so easy. With my crazy boys I'm sure we will have plenty of those moments.

Next will be some kind of broken bone! Maybe he should just wear that helmet you got him all day!!

Control your kids! j/k poor little guy. Ethan saw the pic and said "we only staple paper, huh mom." Like that was the problem instead of the fix! Come visit

It always happens on a Sunday! I haven't figured out why yet. :) Hope it heals well.

He will be so proud of this story when he's older--so tough! I can't believe we haven't been to the ER yet--I don't envy you the experience!
