Well, we had our first trip to the ER on Monday....let me tell you, it was horrible! Max and his cousin Noah were having a great time, dancing in the living room when...BAM! Max flipped himself right into the coffee table. He split his left eyebrow right open!!! And he did it good, let me tell you! We rushed him to the ER and he bought himself three stitches. The doctor really did a great job, and I don't think he'll have much of a scar thankfully.
I have to tell you though...being a nurse.....its WAY different when you're mom!!! It was the HARDEST thing I've ever had to do watching Max being strapped down screaming "Mommy, Daddy don't leave me!!!". He was so scared, and he hates needles and hospitals anyways, so this was ten times worse for him. But, we all made it through together, Stephen and I just kept reminding him that there was no way we were leaving and we held his hand through it all. Afterwards Max really thought french fries and ice cream would make him feel better....so of course we agreed!
He's one tough kid! The very next morning, he was off to school to show off his battle wound. And he hasn't complained of it hurting since! Hopefully that's the last ER trip for a while!
