Today I'm tired because Bonnie & I spent most of the day at the hospital in the ER. She was standing on a chair and fell off and hit her head really hard. Everyone had always told me that head wounds bleed like crazy. Now I know that they really do.
Bonnie ended up with two stitches. I've done really well every time I've taken any of my kids to get shots. I've never cried and have always been very reassuring. Today mix in tired, new mama hormones, and my first born screaming like crazy and well the ugly crying face appeared in front of strangers! Talk about mortifying. I don't cry in front of anyone except maybe Jay and that's if he's lucky.
I just couldn't believe how horrible I felt as she laid there screaming. Plus to make it worse they put a cloth over the area around the wound so the wound will stay clean. That meant Bonnie wasn't able to see anything as the doctor put the stitches in her head. Oh that few minutes was just terrible. Once it was over I was so glad I could scoop her up in my arms and hug her. They even gave her a Popsicle. We head back on Sunday or Monday to remove the stitches.
Life is never dull with little ones!
