Stitches...

I just spent the evening in the ER with Kellan.

He tripped & fell spliting his eyebrow open on the TV table.

Donna stayed home with Garren & Caden. While we both wanted to be with Kellan it just didn't make sense to take everyone to the ER, keeping them up past their bedtime & exposing them to hospital germs.

Kellen cried quite a bit when he fell, even though it wasnt a hard hit I just knew there would be blood. By the time Donna got home & we decided it warranted an ER visit, he had calmed down. When I left with just him, he & his brothers had a meltdown, poor boys aren't use to being seperated.

He did well in the waiting area although he would say "all done" every so often. They got us in pretty quickly & it took the doctor 2 seconds to determine he needed stitches vs glue. It was a wide gash through his eyebrow.



The actual stitching was horrible, Kellan wanted to wiggle & get up so they had to strap him down, which REALLY upset him!


But he scored a new soothie & afterwards all was right with the world again.




Looked like 5 or 6 stitches inside & 4 stitches outside.
We go back this weekend to get them out. The doctor said 3 to 5 days, I prefer sooner rather than later and hope he doesn't have a scar, although I'm sure boys think scars are cool :o)
