Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope your day has been relaxing and uplifting. In our church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we switch our start time each year. Last year we started at 9:00 am and this year we get to start our meetings at 11:00 am where I live. It is different in every meeting house. My days seem a little bit shorter as we all sleep in just a bit longer. 🙂 I’m not complaining, though, as we had a surprise visit at the ER last night!
So….. here’s the story, if you are interested. My 17 year old and I were about to run out and get a quick bite to eat at around 9:30 pm, since we were having a lazy day.
Right as we were about to walk out the door, Brayden started crying and running to the bathroom. As a mom you learn the different meanings for each cry. Some you know aren’t real, some are not that serious, and some are REALLY BAD! This was the latter. This was the type of cry where you stop what you are doing, hop up and run after your child. We don’t have those as often anymore but every once in a while we get a fun surprise.
I run into the bathroom and there is blood everywhere. I am not good in that type of scenario, so it’s nice that Bryan was able to access the situation. I think I might have even blacked out a little (but don’t tell anyone!). Long story short was that he was going to need stitches.
We get to the after hours clinic and it was closed so we knew we had to take him to Provo to the ER. We got there and were very blessed that he was able to be seen right away. No waiting time at all! ***BLESSING***
After they checked him in, the doctor arrived and got a closer look. Turns out he was cut in 3 different spots. 2 on his ear (which I won’t go into detail because it really grosses me out but Karlee and my sister both wanted a picture! EWWWWW!!) and then one on his head, which we weren’t aware of. The ear took 8 stitches and the head was 3 but in a really tough spot. I will need to take him to his doctor on Tuesday morning to make sure it is healing properly and not infected. YIKES!!
What had happened was that his 13 year old brother was fake hitting him and Brayden pulled his head back really hard on the corner of our counter tops (which aren’t even that pointy!). It hit SUPER hard! We are lucky he didn’t have a concussion, too!
