Yeah, no joke, we were once again at the E.R. Yesterday I took the kids to McDonald's with a friend. We weren't even there 10 minutes when Riley walked over to the table to eat and fell onto the plastic bench somehow slicing her top lip open. It was just kind of dangling with a chunk missing in the top. It was horrible. Good thing my friend was there to tell me how bad it was and take Luke for me. Trevor was home from work sick and was able to be there too. Embarrassingly, It was the same doctor who put Luke's staple in. We asked him to please not turn us in for child abuse. They had to sedate her to get it all stitched up. He put 5 stitches in realigning her lip together on top and underneath. The worst was the sedation and having her awake but not really there. It took a long time for her to wake up. She keeps talking about how she was trying so hard to wake up but was too tired. Every time we'd mention going to get Ice Cream she'd get really wide eyes and try to sit up, but it was about an hour before she could. She calls herself a kitty with her new little "whiskers" and is doing great. She even went to Gymnastics today. This is a pic of her today in her Gymnastics outfit. The other pics are at the hospital and after we got home.
