Boo Boo

Anyone that knows Brad and Wyatt know that they don't take pain very well. In fact, if any kind of blood is involved, that's all she wrote! Screaming, flailing, acting as though the world will end! It's a sight.

So the other day when I was talking to Mom on the phone, I heard Wyatt screaming his head off. I said something like, "Oh I wonder what little cut Wyatt has to make him scream and yell like that." So I opened the door to Wyatt with blood dripping down his face. I think I hollered in the phone, "He's bleeding profusely! Gotta go!"

I grabbed a clean towel and got it wet for him to hold on his head. I tried to get what happened from him, but it was hard to understand through his hysteria. I got that Brad hit him with the golf club. Yes, let me say that again - the GOLF CLUB!!! Nice! So I went to the front door to yell at Brad.

He had no idea he had done any damage. He knew he had hit Wyatt, but never thought anything of it. As he rode Wy's bike to the sidewalk and got off I asked if he knew that we had to go to the ER now. All of the sudden he was really concerned. I think he felt tremendous guilt once he realized how much damage had been done.

I cleaned Wyatt up and changed Travis' diaper and we headed to Urgent Care. I'd much rather pay only a $25 copay and sit for just a couple of hours there than pay a $50 copay and wait all night at the ER.

As you can see, he didn't get stitches. I'm sure if it had been on the back of his head, he would have. I believe they try to use any other means for less scarring when it's on the face. So he was glued together and sent home.

There are probably 3 or 4 layers of dermabond in his cut. The dr said it should peel off in about 4 days and the cut will be healed. Pretty cool, huh?

Sorry for the crappy, blurry pictures. I really hate our camera!

So just when I think my life isn't eventful enough, my boys throw something in the mix to make it crazy!!!

Sheesh. Sounds so much like my downstairs neighbor. She has two boys and they both have had their heads glued in the last 6 months or so.

Poor Wyatt. I am starting to think it is going to be a whole different ballgame raising a boy! You know I once accidentally hit my friend in the head with a plastic golf club and she had to get stitches. So I am sure a real one can do some damage!
