On Wednesday after T-ball practice, the kids were playing at the park not 5 min. into it I see Jack crying so I said lets go. While I am walking to my car people keep asking me if he is alright, I am like sure he's fine, then Melanie was like is that blood. Sure enough he was bleeding under his chin. It looked pretty bad but we couldn't see much in the dark so we headed over to Mel's house and it was bad so I called Stephen to meet us at the Dr. office for the second time that day and to call Lafe, luckily he was already there doing Twilight Pediatrics. I dropped Hud off at my dad's on the way there. No one was in the office so we went right back. Now this is Jackson's 3rd time getting stitches/staples, the first was the night before Lee and Sarah's wedding when he cut the heel of his foot running around the church building after the dinner, Lafe met us at the office at 10:00 at night, it was a complete nightmare it took both Stephen and I to hold him down and what seemed like an hour. We were sweating bullets after, I never knew a one year old could be so strong ( 18stitches) next was last year he fell off a huge fort at the Clouse's which resulted in 3 or 4 staples to the back of the head. So on with the story, this time we were able to strap him and a great little device which held his arms and legs put, while the nurse held his head and I his hands ( Stephen had to sit down he was getting a little queasy). He screamed and screamed yelling at us to please not do the shot and to take the scissors away, it was so sad, seeing your baby in pain is just the worst thing ever. He got 4 stitches and as soon as it was done he was running around again asking for a sticker. Sadly I didn't have my camera on me but Stephen did get some shots on his phone so I will get those soon.
Fullness of Joy
