There is no question that I will receive the mother of the year award!
So Bay and I were so exited that we were going to run to Albertson's together, just the two of us. She was so excited that she ran down the slanted driveway, tripped and hit her head on the edge of the van door. She hit hard then screamed and laid face first on the cement. I scooped her up and there was blood EVERYWHERE! When I pick her up what does she do? She plants her head into my neck! She wouldn't let me look but I could feel the blood! I ran into the house and told, maybe screamed for Michael. After our medical history, I totally panicked! Michael ran downstairs and went into action trying to see how bad it really was. It was pretty bad! We knew we had to take her in to some sort of urgent care. Michael is getting his shoes on and I tell the girls to go to a neighbors house. They were totally freaked out because I was totally freaked out and there was blood all over Bay and myself! I made sure they made it to the neighbors and off we went. It happened to be rush hour! We decided to go to a near urgent care instead of the Cook's children's hospital. There was only one other patient in the building and a doctor was in the front office when we came in! It freaked us, maybe just me, out when he hesitated when we asked if he could take care of her. Meaning we might have to go to the ER anyway for a head injury! After looking at her he was confident she would be alright after a few stitches. The staff was great there! I was nervous about not going to a peds. place but they were great!
It was way too cute, they were stitching her up and she started yelling pee pee. I told her to wait one second and she could go on the potty. She said tay! It melted the nurses hearts! I told her that if she went potty it was ok. (She was sitting on Michael's lap!!!!)
Four stitches later and a huge band aid with an additional Aerial band aid we are all fixed up! The cut is on her forehead above her right eye. She had a red mark on her check and her eye is already swollen! The actual cut is about 3/4 on an inch long.
As if I have not had my fill of doctors! At least this one was nice! He wants to see her on Thursday for a checkup then in 5 days to take out the stitches. I guess it isn't so much as seeing the doctors as it is the time! I wonder how many hours I have spent in a doctors office just since Jan. first? Hum. . . At least these many experiences I have had really help me know what I do and DO NOT want in a doctor!
My brother suggested not taking Lou and Bay out in public together! Thanks for the support Jason! I can't wait til you have kids! By the way, for those of you who do not know my little bro, he was totally joking, sort of!!!!!
Anyway, you can post your vote for me for the award on a comment!
