Some of you may remember Julianna's trip to the ER a while back - minor cut to her forehead and she still has the small scar to prove it. Tonight she got a matching and bigger scar on the back of her head.
Yea, great night - her 2nd ambulance trip on Kirk's lap. Fun!
While we were cooking dinner the kids were outside playing. Julianna was walking up the slide (something she's done and can do well) using the rope the big kids use. She lost her grip at the top and fell off holding the rope and hit the back of her head on the playground. There was a lot of blood and it was hard to tell how bad it was so I called 9-1-1.
It wasn't as bad as I first thought - I really thought she had a large wound on the base of her skull but it turns out she just had a decent size cut requiring 2 stitches on the back. I do have to add it's the first kids stitches in the family including Kaitlyn. Figures it would be Julianna!
As you can see - she was basically unaffected by the entire ordeal. Hey, she got alone time with mom and dad AND got 2 free popsicles! And she very much likes her new hospital gown. It's soft and "feels like a blankie" - she even wanted it back on after bath (no water over her wound). Rachel eyed her new gown jealously. I hope she isn't getting any ideas!
At least this scar will be hidden by her hair :) And needless to say the rope is coming down.
How'd you spend your Monday? We were planning to go to the park. Instead we ended up in the ER. Thank God this time it was for something very minor.
