Tuesday started out as a regular day. The boys and I had a nice day hanging around the house & then we were planning on eating dinner at home. Planning being the keyword. That plan fell through because we ended up in the hospital instead.
It all began when I started cooking dinner. The grill was on, veggies were cut, & chicken was marinating. I went down to our lower cabinet to get our biggest frying pan. As I was turning around with that huge frying pan, G comes barreling through the kitchen at full speed and smacks right into the frying pan. The biggest & heaviest frying pan, mind you.
I immediately yelled "Grayson!" & put down the pan. I moved his hair expecting to see a huge knot on his head. Instead I see that he is covered in blood. I yelled for Ben (thank God he was home) & he came to the rescue. I'm glad he's in the medical field because this mama gets a little frantic.
My poor boy had a small gash over his eye but it was pouring out blood & was so swollen. Ben took him to the ER & Griffy and I followed with snacks.
He ended up being there for about 2 hours, got it drained (ew), & then got a stitch to close it up. G was so brave the whole time and was such a trooper. He got 2 suckers & then requested Five Guys at 8:45 for dinner. Boy was hungry!
He woke up feeling a little sore but otherwise in good spirits! SO, that means a broken arm AND stitches all before the age of 3. whew!
We now just have a swollen black eye that needs to stay out of water for 7-10 days. I think we can handle that. Hopefully the rest of our summer will be uneventful!
